I found that Maybank has been hit with fake/scam/phish email much more frequent than their counterparts. Maybank, in no doubt topping my list with fourth series with this post.
Sample phishing email
You may easily fall into trap to believe this was a genuine and absolutely NO WRONG with this email by Maybank directly, am I right? The ONE Malaysia logo has further convinced the customer to trust this email.
IN FACT, big LIAR is just behind this email. Remember to be aware of such NO SUCH REQUEST or ANY EMAIL UPDATE to customer via online ever been sent by bank on profile update, investigation, immediate response or etc.
As you should aware that, WHAT THE HELL with AOL.com in the Mail-By column?
It’s freaking easy to say that it wasn’t send by Maybank.com, right? Thanks to Gmail service who able to identify where real sender network from.
SCAM … SCAM ALERT! Please DO NOT trust or give a look at this kind of email. Bank never (and never) send such email to customer AT ALL.
Sample email from scammer
There’s NO WAY online banking identification can be verified using TAC code. TAC code is used to perform transaction and any update on your banking profile. Not used for verification. Please take note.
It has been long time since I wrote my scam mail that hitting our financial industry especially for those come from email. Again, I’m not a customer of Maybank but I would like to stress the important of awareness of such threat to us. It shouldn’t taken lightly because there were million of ringgit went to this syndicate yearly and most of the time the person who suffered from this is still customer.
I’d come across the advertisement brochure from the newspaper showing that Dell is having 7 Days of Deals promotion. I went to check it out some cool gadget. I caught surprise that this small factor form PC is cost only RM1,199 (online price) and it’s rather powerful enough for my requirement.
This is not my first time purchasing from Dell Online. Both experiences gave me thumbs up for their services. Buying something from online requires some knowledge and how it works. As the good is not cheap, a consideration of getting something from reliable brand is important.
I logged on their website to check it out the specification and voila, it’s suit my needs. I immediately seek information on other similar model and none of the model could beat this. At the end, I bought this.
The specification is as follows. AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 1.5 GHz, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard disk, Dual layer DVD writer and Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bit edition. Integrated graphic doesn’t look crucial for me, as ATI Radeon HD 3200 seems perfect for non-gamer like me. Doesn’t it look great there? RM 1,321 included customization.
It has been a long time since I wrote Scam Site series. This post is the continuous post from Maybank Scam Site which I believe it would have gone by now. Never mind, as long as it could serve for educational purposes, I would rather to post it here.
In the first place, I was receiving an email requested that I should perform an activation of my new online payment system. Without any doubt, the link is available for me to click. The sender looks real and no one would ever think twice of this scam at all. ALL I DO is just a click!
A long waiting LCD monitor is finally arrived! It had been in my list since 2 years ago. It keeps delaying until I can’t wait anymore. Here it is. My new 20′ LCD Samsung monitor. This model is quite new to the market compare its 22′ sibling which appear on the market for quite some time.
The price is RM444 from Low Yat Plaza which I believe the lowest I could get that day. It’s within my budget compare to my first 17′ inch LCD (bought in 2005) which cost me RM1099.

Unpacking my new gadget is rather excited. It’s like opening a gift which you wish to receive. The opening space is where the CD, cables and documentation located. The most important material is store between to protect them.
