CHIANG RAI – A 50-year old man in Chiang Rai is up in arms after his money went missing after making a transfer via a Thai Military Bank machine to his daughter.
Mr. Thanachai Hosuwan revealed that after making a transfer of 16,000 baht to his daughterâ€™s account using a Thai Military Bank ATM machine, that that she never received the money even though the receipt produced by the machine confirmed it had been sent.
He also received a text message from the bank on his phone saying the transfer was incorrect, stating his savings balance had also been adjusted and Mr. Thanachai soon found he was left with only 573 baht.
He contacted a manager of the TMBâ€™s Pahonyothin branch in Chiang Rai City to look into the problem and was told he would not receive an answer until after three working days.
According to an unnamed bank source, Mr. Thanachai was not the only bank client to experience the same issue, another customer reportedly lost 50,000 baht using the same ATM.
Mr. Thanachai urged the bank to speed up its investigation.
