CHON BURI: A group of foreigners and their Thai wives in Pattaya have filed a complaint against an assistant branch manager of a commercial bank on fraud charges after he had allegedly taken money from their accounts.
Around a dozen foreigners and their wives on Tuesday filed the complaint with Pol Col Phisit Phoolsap chief of Pattaya police station against Mr Chaisit Sappermphool, a former assistant manager of a bank branch in Pattaya.
Some of them also accused him of allegedly duping them into investing in some funds, causing them to lose money.
The complainants said they had deposited their retirement funds at the Pattaya branch and Mr Chasit had helped them with deposits, withdrawals and passbook updates for several years.
The irregularities were found when some of them updated their passbooks at other branches. They found the balances did not match what was shown in their passbooks. When they showed the passbooks and the transfer slips as evidence, they were told the documents were not the versions currently used by the bank.
