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)

Which bank ? Can like that ?

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.

If me, I would ask for the withdrawal amount in hard, cold cash if they cannot waive the fee.

Of course I would want to speak to their manager first to explore whether such a drastic measure by me is really necessary.

Bank of China threatens to freeze account over "incomplete records"
https://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/...-account-over-incomplete-records-6000170.html

Yikes almost wanted to open a FD with them.

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) and some uncles really lost their cool during the long wait. Really pity the bank staff with the amount of stress and extra work load they have to deal with.

Sinkies really should try lining up at a bank in China itself. 1-2 hour wait is considered peanuts. :s13:

Why lose cool? Uncle expecting to be serve first? Fast the money out and close the account if cannot wait.

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.

China banks are quite empty on normal weekdays

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. :s13:
