    Card Left In ATM

    Just used my Siam commercial bank card at one of the Kasikorn ATM machines in the Silom complex, Silom road Bangkok. Withdrew some cash and being in the hurry that i was left the card in the machine. I realised about 20-30 mins later, checked back at the ATM but of-course, no card. So question number 1, would the machine take the card back if left in the machine and if so how long does it take to do so?

    Question 2, does any member know the number to call to cancel the card? Looking on the net for it now but having trouble finding it.

    Cheers.

    Noodles.

    Oh dear...

    Actually I wouldn't worry too much unless you wrote your PIN number on it, just go to your local SCB first thing tomorrow.

    You'll prolly have to get a new card which will be a minor hassle and cost about 250 THB.

    I've done that twice now in about 8 years, but with BKK Bank, the last time recently about a few months ago. You have to call and cancel immediately. The machines will never take back the card.

    ^Ok, I actually talked out of my ass, I don't know the answer, but I don't think they take back the card. Maybe they do after some time period?

    Just got the same yesterday.
    Except that in my case, the Kasikorn bank ATM machine must have loved my Siam Commercial bank ATM card because it just swallowed it and never spit it back.
    Have to get a new one tomorrow...

    ^The funny thing is, I've never been drunk when I've lost my ATM card. Always during the day, rushing around. And, I've never lost my wallet or passport or any important paper in my whole life, except, that I was once mugged in Caracas, Venezuela in the subway by a gang of Colombians.

    It was still there, not taken by the machine.
    But it could be that not all ATM's are same, or the time limit is longer than 5 min.
    May the bridges I burn light my way

    I'd close your account and open a new one. I read somewhere very recently (can't remember where) that replacement cards are identical to the old one, which isn't cancelled.

    I did a quick google and it seems that the option to swallow the card back is at the discretion of the bank and they can set the time limit.

    Okay, thanks for all the comments, have cancelled the card but for some reason they could not tell me what the last transaction made on the account was, i will go to the bank tomorrow and get a new card so i will find this information out then. Easy mistake to make, talking on the phone to a friend overseas whilst using the ATM and being in a hurry. Not drunk as i have not touched a drop today.

    Special thanks to lom for the phone number, and would be interesting to hear more about chintees colombian gang experience.

    Cheers.

    Noodles.

    ^^Actually, I think I've detailed this somewhere before, maybe not on TD.

    It went down like this:

    I got out of the train, and got onto the escalator up to the street level. I was wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, obviously a businessman and also probably obviously a foreigner.

    As I rode the escalator I became aware that someone was standing just beneath me on the direct step below. At the same time, I noticed the man above seemed too close. It all happened in a fraction of a second.

    We got to the top, the guy in front splashes coins out from his pocket and yells, "oh shit" or something similar in Spanish, and does a spread eagle in an attempt to pick up his coins. Meanwhile, the escalator doesn't stop of course, so I go careening over the top of the bent over asshole. At the same time, I feel hands in my pockets as the guy in back is now on top of me too, as the three of us tumble to the ground.

    Too fast to see. The guy behind me throws my wallet to another guy standing nearby. he bolts. The two guys I'm laying on the floor with, I'm screaming at them in Spanish "you assholes." (BTW, Spanish is my first language)

    They said "we didn't do anything," and of course they also ran off.

    Well to cut a long story short, I show up to my meeting all disheveled and my associate there says to me "you are one lucky son of a bitch." I say why?

    He said, "because that scam is a famous Colombian street gang scam, and normally, they just cut your pockets open with a switchblade, and lots of guys had their manhood cut off in the process."

    I thanked my lucky stars.

    I once withdrew 200 bucks in a hurry at Singapore airport. I was in the taxi before I realised that in my haste I had taken the ATM card and left without the cash. I hope someone needy got it.

    No, I'm the knifeman. Pencak Silat techniques with a surgical steel Spyderco blade. Sweet.

    No, hell, I didn't have time to even think. And that illustrates what can happen to you in any street situation. Expect the unexpected.

    Might that depend on the bank in question, and the competence of the staff who serve you? There are very few consistencies in this country, and I wouldn't trust my money to many of those.

    Now that's priceless, really made me laugh. I guess you really made the day of the person next in queue.
