  1. Beware of Bangkok Bank

    I was playing golf with the ATM card in my wallet. My tee times was at 1:00 pm and returned home at 8:00 pm. When checking my I banking, 14,000 was transferred through my ATM. The transaction was at 1432 and retrieved at 1630. Hmmm I was playing golf during that time. Sorry but not suffering from dementia! Teaching at a private university, so my mental faculties are in order. Sorry to disappoint some on the sight, perhaps that's why I don't reply or voice an experience here. Thank you to many of the people who were giving some sound and logical advice, very much appreciated!
  2. Beware of Bangkok Bank

    StevyMac There is nothing you can do to retrieve your lost monies! I no longer have an ATM nor I banking and my monies have been secured. I too have police reports, and they tracked my monies to a woman in BKK but she changed her name and closed the account. Gone forever!

  4. Beware of Bangkok Bank

    Since 2014, to present day, but not every month, my account has been hacked. I've taken so many precautions it's to the point of becoming ridiculous. Closed all accounts and reopened at a different branch, cancelled all ATM cards and issued new ones on many occasions. Now, recently move to another branch and yes, hacked! This is becoming costly and very inconvenient when doing my banking. Police reports, arguing slightly to try to make them understand the situation but somehow and some way, it becomes my fault! Today was just another glorious day at the bank, the manager insisted that according to their SYSTEM, I withdrew monies from the ATM at an really early morning time. Knowingly that my money was not safe I removed my Thai baht and left a balance of 126 baht. When I checked my bank book, 4000 was withdrawn and put me at an negative balance. My question was, how do I withdraw 4000 with a balance of 126? Reply: " the system was offline and it did not know your balance!" I am not exaggerating this was my reply! Now they are suppose to check the CCTV but not all ATM's have these cameras. If they are somewhat telling the truth, go and use your ATM cards at 3:00 am and withdraw monies that you don't have! The police were actually very helpful and rather honest, saying that the bank will try to keep your money but they are responsible for money being taken from your account. Now the question arises, why are you still doing business at that bank? Answer, I need a Thai bank located in the USA! Does anyone know of a way to receive monies from the US that does not include the Bangkok Bank? I'm becoming rather frustrated with the skimming of my ATM Card, Foreign Currency Deposit Account, and a regular account all,of which is being hacked! Thank you
