PHITSANULOK: An elderly businessman said he will file a legal complaint after allegedly discovering that 50 million baht had disappeared from his bank accounts. He believes the culprit is his adopted daughter.
Prasert Kaewpakapongsri, 77, went to the provincial Damrongtham centre to complain that the funds had vanished from six of his bank accounts. He is also lodging a complaint with the Crime Suppression Division.
Mr Prasert said he has asked the bank for a detailed statement as he claims the money was withdrawn without his knowledge.
However, the bank only provided records of three accounts. Mr Prasert said he has also brought the matter to the attention of the Bank of Thailand, which directed the commercial bank that safeguards Mr Prasert’s money to look into the incident.
