MAS account freeze duration?

A friend accidentally received a business payment on his personal account (he forgot to give the company account number) and his account has been frozen by MAS for 3 months now. How long does it normally take to un-freeze??

Why doesn't he contact MAS himself, but trouble you to ask on forums?

1MDB monies hv been frozen since 2016?

MAS freeze bank accounts is a very serious matter, usually for money laundering investigations. I doubt is so simple as give wrong account number.

Business payment into personal account?

Sounds like business account also frozen?

Trying to avoid income tax and creditors?

I had corporate accounts frozen cause I refuse to pay the estimated tax. But my accounts had little fund. IRAS also went for account that I had actually closed. So heck care.

That was more than 10 years ago and finally I deregistered the company.

Ah, clarification: It's not the whole account frozen, it's just that (big) payment

He's already gone for a few interviews but they won't say how long the process will take, so I help him check with experts here mah

Why don't your friend ask himself here then? What benefits are you getting from helping him to ask?

None of us are from MAS here, so better to ask MAS. Or maybe can ask CAD if you wish.

Your friend or you not giving the real reason for the amount frozen and likely the amount is not truly his income.
