Yes, I was done for 40K baht by them.

Bank. (Kasikorn) was useless. Cops not much better.

 

I am usually nit a violent man, but get very angry at that memory, start thinking of lynch mobs...

Are you saying the Bank didn't cover the scam?

Thai banks are not like banks in the west if you fall victim to a scam through no fault of your own you are on your own

Good point especially when many here advocate opening a local bank account

 

I was scammed out of Gbp 1k on my UK debit card once in bkk...someone got hold of the card and the pin(long story)....anyway bank refunded the cash 1 week later after I signed a forme stating I was not defrauding the bank! Took 2 straightforward phonecalls to get it sorted

I only use ATMs attached to banks. Never use the ones outside 7s or in small sois.

A few years back

My credit card was skimmed by a hotel receptionist in a 5 star hotel in Bangkok

Over £10,000 worth of goods were purchased in New Zealand on the skimmed card

My UK bank refunded me in full after investigations

I know the card was skimmed by the hotel receptionist because I only ever used the card once

To pay my hotel bill

If this had been a Thai bank

It would have cost me 10 grand

Re. opening bank accounts in LOS and being vulnerable to ATM skimmers.

 

You need to protect yourself. I have 1 account that is used to satisfy my annual retirement visa requirements. It's a fixed term deposit. I don't have an ATM card for it. No fucker can get into that account from the street. There's a serious amount in that account but as far as I'm concerned it's safe and secure.

 

Then I have a couple other day-to-day accounts and I never have large sums in these accounts. I take precautions like I said above (only use ATMs attached to banks) but if anyone compromised those accounts in any way I wouldn't lose that much...30,000BT...for example. I wouldn't like to lose 30K THB but it wouldn't be the end of the world either.

 

As for CCs..fuck em...real men deal in cash.

I don't know why it's so hard to design an ATM slot that cannot have a skimmer attached to it, without the machine detecting it. Or even designing the slot to make it really obvious if something has been tacked on top, like some thin metal bars running in parallel across the top and bottom of the slot, the entire length of the machine (showing what the slot opening should be parallel to) - it would be pretty obvious if a skimmer was placed on top of that, as it would break the continuity.

the skimmer thieves are ingenious...

 

I used a card two trips ago at the bbq place in central festival, next day a fraudulent charge was attempted, but never completed by the card company...  paypal debit card actually...  showed up as a pending transaction but never went further...

 

that bbq place in central festival was the only place I used the card...

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
