  • GSB freezes woman’s account used to...

The Government Saving Bank has frozen the savings account of a woman that was being used for donations for flood victims in the name of actor Bin Banluerit.

The GSB announced on its Facebook wall, @GSBSociety, that the bank account in question had been frozen and no more transactions could be made until an investigation is completed.
The bank account belongs to Napassorn Thongbutr. The bank account’s number and the owner’s name were displayed at the bottom of an apparently-doctored post supposedly written by Bin, asking for donations to flood victims.
Police have yet to investigate whether the account owner came up with doctored post herself or if someone else did it to frame her.
Meanwhile, Bin has announced on his Facebook wall that the donation to his Kasikorn savings account has reached over Bt130 million, prompting him to open a new current account to receive public donations.
Bin took swift action to help flood victims in the northeast. The government has been attacked for being slow in responding to the crisis.
