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.
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!
I’m not a customer of Maybank. However, I would like to share one of the many scam activity going on targeting every major banks.
Below are the ways how they get your ID and password.
I received an email saying that I need to update my personal details as part of their account maintenance. They even mention about me changing my personal information recently. HELL NO! I did not call the bank, maybe others want to imitate me. By thinking this way, I may give a shot to click the link provided.
After that, proceed to login at FAKE website as shown below.
Type your ID and password together with TAC number that received via SMS mobile.
If you are using Maybank 2U Online all the while, then WHAT THE HELL 2 database server dot com is doing in the email? How on earth maybank may use external database to store information? IT literate customer may know this immediately.
If you see the THANK YOU page. Congrat, you are damn already.
Phisher at this stage already success to get your ID and password. They demand you not the login at the specific time to prevent dual login in different IPs at the same time. Dual login is easy to be detected by the monitoring tools and ID will be block after that.
What so ever, they will perform a valid login on the real banking website and perform fund transfer out to their account before you ever realize it as a scam.
Please DO NOT trust anything that you see fishy. This kind of threat is targeting the non IT savvy and easy to fall into trap. Bank was hitting so badly with phishing activity recently.
