Woman, 61, returns Bt60,000 wrongly credited to her account
A 61-year-old woman in Nakhon Si Thammarat province on Saturday returned Bt60,000 wrongly deposited in her bank account.
Phichit Aochai went to the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives’ Thunyai branch and returned the money.
Phichit said she withdrew the cash on Friday thinking it was money she had got from the sale of her car but she later checked with the buyer and learned the money had not yet been deposited in her account.
Julawan Hemthanon, assistant manager of the branch, accepted the cash and pledged to find the person to whom it belonged.
Phichit said although she was poor and living with her 22-year-old disabled daughter, she does not want to take what does not belong to her.
She said last month she had found a wallet belonging to a foreign tourist with a lot of cash. She returned it to the hotel and the tourist gave her a Bt10,000 reward.
