After the story was picked up by Thaivisa.com, members of that site reported having had similar warnings from Siam Commercial Bank and Bangkok Bank.

“Looks like the scammers made lookalike apps for all the main Thai banks,” remarked one member.

The banks have warned that smart phone users put their accounts at risk if they download an apparently legitimate app.

Kasikorn warned, “The application programme can steal your OTP [one-time password] SMSs that are sent from the K-Cyber Banking System to your mobile phone, and make fraudulent transactions.”
