A Thai woman has accused a bank of stealing 4 million baht from her account in the Khemmarat district of Ubon Ratchathani Province in northeastern Thailand.

Wanida Wantaprom yesterday filed a complaint at Khemmarat Police Station after money had been withdrawn from her account at the Kasikorn Bank, Central Rama 2 branch.

The mother of one complained to her bank on several occasions but no progress has been made in solving the problem so she went to the police.

Wanida, accompanied to the police station by the famous Thai snooker player, Thanatpong Phasomsub or Eid Chonburi, revealed she opened the account in 2017 with 271,000 baht but had managed to build up the account to 4 million baht.

Wanida then discovered large amounts of money, 100,000 baht, and 200,000 baht at a time kept disappearing from her account until there was nothing left. She said she contacted the bank’s call centre to complain but nothing has been done to find the missing money.

Wanida believes someone inside the bank knows the truth and there is a cover-up.

The investigating officer at Khemmarat Police Station reported that an investigation is underway to collect evidence from the Central Rama 2 branch. The officer added anyone found guilty of stealing the money or involved in any fraudulent activity would be prosecuted.
