BTW, I wrote in that post "no fee" which isn't true. They don't list the fee (as far as I know) but when the money shows up in my BKB account the exchange rate works out to be somewhere between 0.1 to 0.4 baht less that their posted exchange rate for the day.
Not sure how much or if there is a fee when transferring via Bangkok Bank in N.Y. but there is a "conversion" fee charge when funds hit the bank in Thailand. It is a percentage but has a minimum of 200 baht and a max of 500 baht the last time I checked.

If someone can confirm that is possible, then I will be a happy camper!

To the best of my knowledge and experience yes it can be done. But besides paying your Bank the Transfer fee if you wire through NY they will charge anywhere from $5 - $20. based on the sum wired. Then BBK Thailand will charge ,0025% as a conversion fee from US to Thai. If Capital One can do a swift transfer you will eliminate NY as BBK has a letter code which I believe you can find on their web site.

When I go to the main branch to move money from direct deposit account to another account, seems I always get help from their english speaking helpers. She/he will fill out one form, while I fill out the other. And they always tell me to sign the withdrawal slip twice while at the forms counter, even though it says something like, sign it front of teller. Go figure.

Just thinking a way to test the ease of withdrawal would be to get a withdrawal slip, bring it home, fill it out, sign it, and send wife, with bank books, passport, and filled out form. See what happens?

And what will the result of the law suit be? Bangkok Bank NY cancel all direct deposits? Or will they just start posting their fees?
I guess we know now.
