    Government Savings Bank

    Went to open bank account today for son in Ubon.

    The clerk advises us to open in Yasothon, because everytime son wants to use ATM, he will be charged 30 baht.

    Though if he opens in Yaso he want be charged, is this normal practice.?

    Yes. But heard they are supposed to be doing away with this provincial rip off scheme.

    Most banks are 15thb for out of province ATMs.

    I think K-Bank has no charge for the first 2 times each month.


    Always been like that.

    so you're going to open up a rehab center in a country where you've lived for years but never had a bank account.

    ok.
