I got a new credit card from Maybank a few months ago. As this card is somewhat redundant, I have never used it and kept it under lock all the time. Suddenly, an officer called me last week to inform me of a purchase made outside this country. I told him that I am still in Miri and therefore he has my card cancelled immediately.
I must thanks all these "extra alert" officers to keep us informed. I believe they have a computer system to detect unusual spending.
So, the question is "How do the thief got my details?". Is it an inside job?
Tip: Never disclose your credit card number and the three digits code at the back of the card to anyone. If you do, it is like giving someone your wallet! If you use it for purchase, make sure that the cashier doesn't copy that three digit code anywhere.
