Bank clerk sacked for allegedly stealing millions, bank reimburses customer

A 34 year old Bangkok Bank clerk has been sacked amid claims she stole millions of baht from a wealthy customer. The woman denies the charge and says she plans to fight the matter in court.

Earlier in the week Hia Maa, the owner of a well known restaurant in Samut Prakan province, south east of Bangkok, went to the police to report 5 million baht missing from his account, which had been locked. Local media reports at the time say that he was hopitalised due to the stress of the case. Read The Thaiger story HERE.

A senior official of the bank went to the Bang Poo police station, where Hia Maa was compensated in full, plus interest. Documents were handed over by the bank, which claims the clerk skimmed off 2.5 million baht for herself. The bank asserts the woman was sacked on the spot and it will pursue the case to its conclusion

Hia Maa said that he was satisfied with the bank’s actions but it remains to be seen if he will continue to bank with them in the future.

Referring to his hospital visit he joked… “If they are only going to pay for that I would say don’t bother. I have enough money for that.”
