My account was cleaned out and the bank won't repay me, says Chonburi woman | News by Samui Times

Nanthana Sae-ngow, 49, went to the Ban Bung police to register a complaint yesterday.  She said that she had opened an account with a bank in Ban Bung many years ago but didn’t touch it for ten years. In 2014 she needed the money because she was having a baby and went to check on it by making a 500 baht ATM withdrawal. It was then that she discovered that between 2011 and 2013 there had been 23 withdrawals using her ATM card.

The balance should have been 160,800 baht but 5,000 baht was all that was left.  Nanthana said that she didn’t make the withdrawals and her husband didn’t know her PIN number.  The bank have refused to settle – they have told her that the money was stolen by someone close to her.  Nanthana believes the money was systematically stolen by an employee of the bank. She said that no matter how much it cost her she was determined to get to the bottom of this and get her money back.  The bank was not named in the 77kaoded story.
