Thank you for Your Understanding and support

First all, their English is worse. Much worse than mine hehe.

They tried to create panic towards online customer by saying that Maybank2u security has been breached. So user will straight away click the link without checking. They moron just have nothing better to do I guess. So PLEASE don’t EVER trust/believe email asking for your online banking id and password. It doesn’t matter either Maybank2U, PayPal, CIMB Click or any other online banking. Just contact your bank directly to confirm.

Maybank does not send out any e-mail or SMS requesting customers to provide personal banking ID or PIN or credit card information. Please do not log in through website links contained in emails supposedly from Maybank or other institutions. Be alert or you may fall victim to a financial scam.

CIMB Click Pishing and SMS Alert

A few months ago, Muridi Mohammad from Perlis was shocked when his money has been missing from his CIMB account.He received an SMS telling him he had won RM14,000 in an Akademi Fantasia 6 (AF6) competition. All he had to do to claim his winnings was to telephone the number given.

When he called, a man claiming to be from Astro asked for Muridi’s bank account number to deposit his winnings. Though he was hesitant, he did so. Fortunately he had enough sense to give an account with little money in it.

“I gave him the account my tenant uses to pay the rent.” The CIMB account had a balance of just over RM300.

Although this case is not new, but this poor Ustaz still want to try his luck. He just gave his account number just to see wether the scammer will deposit money or not. But it turns out, the scammer manage to withdraw money from his account two times. About an hour later he checked the account and found that two payments of RM120 had been made to “I-PYMT TO COLL”.

The BIG question here, how this criminal manage to withdraw money just using user account’s number. Really strange. I think this guys are really professional,even CIMB never release a statement about their system flaw.So just use thumb rule, if the offer is too good, then it is a scam. Don’t try to outsmart them. Maybe your are dealing with international criminal :). (more…)
