Recently I received a check from a bank. It was for the profit I made out of my shares. How nice it was when I open the envelope and saw a check. I was so delighted to receive at a time when money is needed most. All my joy immediately turn to be a joke when I saw the amount to be paid. Take a look at the picture below.
The profit is from Unit Trust, Amanah Saham Nasional which I bought in 1995 before I migrated to Kuala Lumpur. Not a large sum though but all the years after I bought the Unit Trust Share, the value depreciated from RM1.00 a unit to even RM 0.30. At first when I made the deposit, at least I can be a few hundred Ringgit richer after a few years. But after 14 years, I only made RM2.87. What a joke this Amanah Saham Bank Simpanan Nasional makes. And they send me a check for that amount expecting me to go the the bank and cash out. Even if I go on a motorcycle will cost more than the value of the check.
