Bank Depositor Tries To Withdraw 17 Year-Old-Funds, Refused
A customer who tried to withdraw 1700 RMB she deposited 17 years ago was refused her money after being told by her bank that no duplicate record was made at the time. Despite the Xinghuo Road, Xi’an branch of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China admitting that there was nothing wrong with the depositor’s bank book, they also said that computers were not in use there in 1998, meaning their current system lacked part of her records and so due to this had too refuse her withdrawal. One netizen said if it had been a 1700 RMB debt the bank would have certainly kept a record.

          True, I’m not saying western banks are more virtuous in this respect, but competition does bring better quality and care about customer service.
