Money scam, bank asking to refund money transferred and already used , is it legal ?

Recommended Posts

hello,

 

Money scam, bank asking to refund money transferred and already used , is it legal ?

 

A poor girl has been caught in a money scam after being in contact with a guy from the most famous country about online scam, she even met him many times because he is living in a country not far from here.

 

She was stupid to let him use her bank account in Thailand, he had money transferred from Singapore to this account and he used this money.

 

Now the singapore bank wants the money back because of social engineering scam (i don't know exactly what it means):

Thai bank is saying that money will be given back to singapore bank and that the girl must refund thai bank.

 

She was really in love with the guy, she has been scammed, she is young and poor, sad for her.

 

What can she do ? will she go to jail if she cannot pay ? it's about hundreds thousands thai baht...

 

Of course she has been stupid to trust the guy, but telling her won't help, now she is thinking about suicide...

-

- is it legit for the singapore bank to ask the money back ?

- is it legit for the thai bank to ask the money back ?

- should the banks provide a court order or something official telling the girl to pay ?

- if she has no choice but pay or go to jail, how can we slow the process ?

- do we need to involve lawyers ? are they going to also scam her ?

-

Please help the poor girl. If any of you can contact me to tell me what to do, thank you so much.

Girls is not my girlfriend and is just someone from a poor family that i try to help.

Please...

Please, is it possible that only people who know something comment ?

- To make it clear, I am not the kind of person who can be scammed (unlike many who bought a house for their wife) 

- I know that the story is true, I have seen documents from the bank

- I am not interested by any of your personal feeling on this story, I am only looking for help, or at least a lawyer contact

-

- Thank you for your kind understanding, I am sure that you can do it if you try hard !

 

 

"Thai bank is saying that money will be given back to singapore bank and that the girl must refund thai bank."

 

Surely the Thai bank account holder is liable for the debt to the Sing. bank, not the Thai bank itself?

 

In which case the Thai bank would have no interest in the case, as it owes no money.

Expect the transfer was via SWIFT.  If so, below guidelines of recalling/cancelling SWIFT transfers may provide helpful info, but note the guidance states any relevant laws and regulations (such as Thailand and Singapore may have) take precedence over the guidelines.
