Correction re ATM not charging 150 baht

In recent posts I have getting the Kasikorn Bank mixed up with Bank of Ayudhya in relation to the ATM outside the 711 in Bang Niang at the junction of the Beach Road and the highway.

It was the Bank of Ayudhya one NOT the Kasikorn Bank one that did not charge the 150 baht withdrawal fee during our last stay in KL from December 2009 to April 2010.

Sorry and I hope it is still not charging.

When you check your bank statements, read the amount withdrawn very carefully. A UK friend of mine got his bank statement but no 150 baht fee was shown, but the amount of Thai baht shown was 150 baht higher than the actually amount he got from the machine.

dragonc is right.. it just adds 150 baht into your withdrawal so isnt listed as a seperate charge on your statement.. a hidden charge as such!

C'mon guys, I'm not that stupid!

There was no charge over a 5 month period from this machine, neither advised when I made a withdrawal, nor shown on the receipt from the machine, nor shown on my bank statement either as a separate amount nor added to the amount I withdrew. Same thing for friends whose home bank and Direct Debit card was different from mine. I'm not in the habit of giving false information, especially based on actual experience AND especially not where money is concerned!

It may now have been corrected, hence the hope expressed at the end of my post, which I will be testing out in a couple of months.

No one was suggesting your are stupid. I reported a friend's experience. Few machines don't levy the charge now but there might be some.

Having been more forcibly doubted on another TA forum, I'm sorry I tarred you both with the same brush!
