Was at one of the branches of Bank of China lately. Due to this incident there was a super long queue (should be a daily affair)
China banks are quite empty on normal weekdays

You did not give the maturity instruction when you placed the FD?

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)

If a bank had been compromised by cyber attacks .... then would freeze the accounts to verify damage been inflicted.
Maybe this is already happening here today.

I always withdraw in hard, cold cash but never once have to pay a fee leh
As far as I know, and keep this in mind .... only DBS Bank need to pay a fee when deposit hard cash above a certain amount.
The rest will all gladly accept your business.
Remember, .... it's DBS Bank .... your own country's homegrown bank. They don't need your business and support.

Withdraw money in notes no fee/charges (unless you want coin?).

For deposit, not just DBS. UOB & OCBC also have wor.
Just different criteria and whether the bank/staff want to request the paying of fee not.

They have this overcrowding problem due to "account update" letter.

Haha these days on weekdays you try going to any Bank of China branches and see if empty or super long queue.

That day will come when they plead for our money. Good times can afford to be arrogant .... bad times beg for peanuts.
