Let's say a Thai person has a bank account. Is it possible to add a foreigner to that account number so that s/he can access it without otherwise changing the account number or details?
Like a joint bank account? No.
What if I tried for a joint account and deposited a hundred of these? Do you think the Thai bankers are smart enough to spot it?
What about these?

Joint bank accounts in Thailand are nothing but hassle.
Not only is it difficult to get money out but we even have trouble depositing funds for clients. Any deposits must be in the name of both account holders, or in cash, and we've even heard of cheques needing both signatures.
^tis true, I have a joint account and the bank wouldn't put a check in my name into the account. Weird and annoying.
A problem that is also increasing with Thai bank accounts is that Thai banks are starting to disable ATM cards when they realise the account holder has left Thailand. Bank of Ayuddhya are the worst but Krung Thai and even SCB are doing it at times. Nice interest free loan for the bank and absolute hassle fo the account holder.
What about doing an electronic transfer into a joint Thai bank account? Is that a hassle?
We've certainly had cheques handed back by Krung Thai, Bank of Ayuddhya and SCB. Krung Thai were doing this five years ago.
