Especially their main branch raffles place cheekopek ahtiong male manager. When you go to that branch to withdraw upon maturity , he will interrogate you like a police interrogation to try to frighten you. Then slip in a promo from their bank to try to get you to stay with them.
This looks like a common treatment to people who wants to withdraw upon maturity. Toa Payoh branch also same. This just pissed off the customers. Hope they see this thread and start to educate their branch people not to continue this.

Do they allow instructions to credit principal and interest to their savings/current account ? Then no need to see their face when mature. Just transfer out.

ICBC is like that, auto credit to savings account, then use FAST to transfer out.

Look on the bright side. Least no charges for withdrawal. On the other hand, this specific mat bank at town area will process a withdrawal fees if ones account is withdraw even upon maturity (reason: auto renewal)

Not looking down. But when you are getting the same interest rate from govt why risk it with a bank? Even local bank.

Some time back some people placed FD with some Bangkok bank. Is it Bangkok Bank Public Co Ltd ? Just read that they are facility lenders for Hyflux for $115.6 million.
