OCBC / give me my money!!!


I have a few hundred thousand dollars in OCBC, which I saved from a few years working in Singapore. Now that I have left, I want to clear out the account, but they have been dragging their feet for TWO MONTHS. I have called and written almost daily since then, but realize that once you are no longer in Singapore, you really have no leverage. I have made a complaint to the Monetary Authority of Singapore, but it is too early to tell whether that will have an effect.

The bottom line -- DO NOT leave your money in Singapore banks when you leave the country!! I have heard my story repeated by numerous expats, many of whom said that they eventually had to get a flight to Singapore to demand their savings back!!!
