    This is what I have done with my new card. In addition, I set Internet banking limits to zero.

    I can change these on the app whenever I want.

    This is only useful if the bank sends sms alerts. In my case none was sent. According to social media, most other victims received no alerts. This is a sort of victim blaming.

    The only reason I did not do this is because I read reports that some Immigration officers declined to accept details from an 'inactive' account. I can't understand why. I have long since given up knowing what to think about Immigration policies, I just want things to be easy.

    If there are recommendations for fixed deposits that are known to work at any Immigration office then that is where I'd put my funds.

    BTW, for my MM2H visa in Malaysia it is mandatory to put the funds into a fixed deposit. Government permission is required to touch the money.

    Yes, even people who are used to receiving alerts claimed they never got them.

    My bank here in the sandpit sends an alert for *every* transaction, no matter how small.

    40,000 people hit by bank fraud
    Police are investigating after about 40,000 people lost at least 10 million baht as a result of unauthorised online transactions.
    The commissioner of the Cyber Crime Investigation Bureau (CCIB), Pol Lt Gen Kornchai Klaiklung, said the police are in talks with the Bank of Thailand and the Thai Bankers' Association to find a solution.

    They are refunding because they know there is no way they can blame it on the customers. I'd go so far as to say they probably won't even do it unless people complain.

    Banks are thieving little shits after all.

    Same with all the PPI shit, if you didn't ask, you didn't get, even if they knew they owed you it.

    A Bank Manager suggested to his complaining customer who had 11 withdrawals for 1,050 Baht each.
    You was drunk he said, you could not remember what you did.
    His argument fell apart when the customer informed him, ATM machines dont issue 50 baht notes

    By way of update, the Bangkok Bank refunded my Baht8K on Saturday morning.

    That is pretty quick and indicative of the embarrassment the banks must be feeling.

    I was told most victims were with Bangkok Bank plus some at Krungsri and Kasikorn.
