[UPDATE : This Post is no longer VALID since Maybank has improved their Debit Card Service. Please refer my latest post regarding Maybank Debit Card. Thanks ]
I read in the net that Maybank launched a new Maybank Visa Debit Card, I said WOW! that would be great since I have a saving account with them.So, I am expecting free service, easy top up and more shopping at the Internet. I am glad more local banks start offering Visa debit card facility.
Steven Wong has made a summary about this new card :
To review whether this Visa debit card compatible to PayPal withdrawal, I spend sometimes to read on Maybank website, and here is the quick summary for your info:
- Maybank’s Group ATM in Singapore, Brunei and Philippines: RM2 each
- MEPS network: RM1 each
- Visa Plus Network: RM12 each
Existing Maybank ATM card holders can convert their cards with the one time cost of RM12. It is also the same cost for card replacement.
However, if you used up to 7 years (upon the expiry date, you will get the replacement at FOC).
Earn 1 TreatPoint for every RM3 purchases.
No annual fees, monthly interest rates or late charges.
So, since I am a Tune Card user plus have a Maybank saving account, I think it would be good if I compare this two card, rite ?
Below is a brief comparison of our very own Tune card Prepaid Visa Card vs Visa-branded debit card

I better stick with Tune Visa Prepaid Card, Why ? As you can see it is more flexible and Internet friendly. The most important thing is you can withdraw your PayPal money with it.:)
By the way, you can use Maybank ATM card in Petronas Petrol Pump and selected Supermarket so why Maybank want to promote this Debit card instead. I think their business idea for this Debit card is weak because you don’t want to go abroad only carrying debit card right?. At least you must have a spare credit card for emergency.
For me, debit card or Prepaid card is only suitable for Internet transaction. Buy ticket,hosting,domain and eBay online. So if maybank overlook this thing than their debit card will be nowhere compared to by Tune Prepaid Visa Card.
Several feedback that I got :
1. The question now is: Can Maybank Visa Debit cards compatible to PayPal withdrawal? I search on the web and try to find any review on that, unfortunately, there is no review so far. The closest was Uncle FL Sam on his withdrawal to Maybank Visa Credit Card.
So, I called up this morning to Maybank Customer Service to find out the details. The Maybank staff that I spoke to also not sure whether it is workable. After 20 minutes checking and waiting, she told me “NO” for PayPal withdrawal. steven wong
2. I try to add MBB Visa Debit card with Paypal, its not work. The following message will appear…
“This credit card has been denied by the bank that issued your credit card. For details on why your card was denied, please contact your credit card issuer’s customer service department. Or, you may want to try adding a different credit card.” zahidi

First of all, I would like to thanks all of my reader since my blog is no 4 in Google search page for the keyword “tunemoney”. That is after Tunemoney.com itself. 🙂 As my friend always mention, “What you give you will get back”.
Back to my mission to cash out my paypal account, as mention here. I called Tunemoney.com several time using my handphone at 600 83 7999, but failed. I even email to them since nobody call me for my application status.
After a few days, I got an idea to try to call that number using fixed line,
The line is through. After a few standard procedure question for verification, my card is already at POS office Tesco Shah Alam. The best thing was, tunemoney.com will NOT call you to pick up the card. Just go the appointed POS office after 7 working days.
So my advice, just call Tunemoney.com first to make sure. Rather blindly asking the counter, and your card is still not available. Wasting time and money, right?. Tunecard is still new since my number is 140,and the first person to pick up at POS office Tesco Shah Alam.Even the lady at the counter still got to be assist by her supervisor.
Just bring your IC, sign a few documents and pay RM 3 to them.That’s all. After that sign at the back of the card, and activate it.

Ok, here I share one of the jokes that I read :
A driver who was speeding was pulled over by a police officer. After the interrogation, the driver admitted he was a murderer and that he had hidden a gun and a body in the boot.
The worried police officer radioed the station for help. In no time at all, a police squad came.The police chief asked hi to open the boot. the driver complied. After a through check, they were unable to find anything The baffled police chief apologized.”I’m sorry we had to do this, but our officer told us you have a gun and a body in the boot.”
“Ohh, that fool!” said the driver “I bet he told you I was speeding, too!”

The threat of Internet fraud is quite real and we need to be aware of scams such as “phishing” and “pharming” where a virus or malicious program can be downloaded to your computer with the intention of stealing your personal information – from credit card information, user ID and password to online banking accounts.
But don’t panic! Here are 5 tips that will minimise your risk of being a victim and unsuspectingly swallowing the bait set by scamsters to steal your identity.
5 TIPS TO PROTECT YOURSELF ONLINE
Watch out for suspicious e-mail or pop-up links.
NEVER click on a URL link in e-mail or fill out forms in e-mail requesting you to confirm or update personal information, even if it threatens dire consequences if you don’t reply.
Even if the e-mail seems to be from a genuine web site or someone you know, call first to check or type the web URL to log on to the site yourself (not from the e-mail). Also, never send your personal information to anyone by e-mail.
Phishing can happen by phone too. You may receive a call from someone pretending to be from a bank or company asking for your personal information. Or the person may inform you that you have been a victim of a fraud. Always verify the caller’s identity first. Credit card companies do call customers if they notice unusual activity on your card but they will only enquire about specific transactions. They will not ask for your account number or personal information.
Protect your computer with anti-virus, spam filters and firewalls.
Update your Operating System and Internet Browser regularly to ensure that you are protected. Use anti-virus software and, if possible, personal firewalls. Ensure your anti-virus software is up to date with the latest signatures.
Scan your PC for viruses and update your browser regularly.
Take some time to visit any popular anti-virus web site to scan your PC. This will alert you to any virus or malicious programs in your computer. You can often download the latest security and critical patches from these sites too.
Be cautious about clicking on pop-ups and free stuff.
Beware of downloading free programs and web content offering to increase the speed of your computer, free gifts, get rich quick schemes, etc.
You may click on these links out of curiosity or simply to read. However, in pharming scams, such content can be programmed to download a virus or malicious program or spyware to your computer while you are browsing. After that, when you type the address of a legitimate website, you are taken to a fake web site. Any personal information you provide at the fake site such as user name, account number, credit card details can be stolen and fraudulently used.
If you share your computer with others, ensure they do not visit such sites and unknowingly download malicious content.
Be selfish about sharing your password.
Online fraud frequently occurs when someone has compromised the security of their password through sharing. Do not share your password with family, relatives, friends or anyone, however harmless and convenient it may seem at the time. Your password is the key that opens the lock to your personal information and should be guarded as safely as your car keys.
Finally, always clear your cache each time you logout after an Internet session. This is especially important if others have access to your computer or you use a computer in public places such as Internet cafes.
Well, it’s easy, isn’t it? Just take these five steps to enhance the way you protect your personal information and ensure your Internet experience is enjoyable.
