Northern factory worker goes to the police after getting a million baht in her account instead of 10K salary


Recommended Posts

?? And what does the "-" in front of the 1,063,863.15 mean.

Confused.

Interesting sounds like she reported the money appearing in her account out of fear rather than honesty. Perhaps she knows something we don't.

She could have just said nothing and left it there to see if the bank eventually removes the money.

So was the deposit from her employer or not?

 

Why would criminals deposit money in a strangers account?  Easy to deposit but harder to get it back out without help from someone working for the bank.

The source expected other people to come forward with sums of money transferred to their accounts.

I hope she gets a reward for her honesty,

Why the bank told her to go to the police is a mystery!

If it was the company she was being honest in reporting it.

If it was dodgy money and she reported it to the police she cannot be found guilty of holding the money or being an accessory to a crime.

Shows how good the anti-laundering detection is. Unexpected million appears in an account and not a soul questions it. Probably thought she was in the police.

Sanook quoted an unnamed senior police source as saying they think the money is connected to a 68 million baht fraud perpetrated by a dentist and relatives conning people out of money in relation to an iron or steel and mask business.

Please don't say the bank transferred it back

Maybe the bank was aware that the money was apparently being laundered? I suggest that they should have accompanied her to the police though.

Maybe an accident, i.e. 'fat finger' when quickly transferring the money.

 

Perhaps the bank knew more about it, and suspected that the crooks would try to get the money back from the account holder. That would explain the advice to go to the police.

The first thing i would have done is go to the factories wage's office and thank them for the bonus.
