Woman who left ATM in machine had 10,000 baht stolen from her account
A woman who left her ATM card in a cash machine outside a bank found out she had been fleeced of 10,000 baht by the next customer at the machine.
The story was posted on Facebook on the page of @Ni Cha. Nicha is a friend of the victim and she spoke to Daily News Online reporters.
She said her friend only realized that she had left her card in the machine when she checked her balance on an online app on her phone. She rushed back to the bank and reported the incident. It all took place in a department store.
Another person had retrieved her card and handed it in.
She studied the CCTV footage and the two people who were using the ATM after her looked like foreigners. She reported the matter to Pathum Wan police.
Then she went back and carried out her own detective work because the police seedmed reluctant to do anything. She looked at more CCTV and saw that the couple who used the ATM went to eat in a well known restaurant near by.
The waitress remembered they were foreign and they paid by credit card.
She went back later to the police who she said would not press on and investigate the matter because the people who stole the money were foreigners.
The trail had now gone cold. The incident happened on December 12th and it was now eleven days later.
