This morning, I read in See Hua daily news about a scam where some people were cheated of RM6000-RM8000 in Miri. Here is what I understood could have happen:
A caller would call up the victim informing him/her that the victim's credit card had been misused. The victim would be instructed to call back a certain telephone very similar to a certain hotline number from a certain bank. What I was not clear from the report was the process that follows after the victim had called. But I believe the victim must be asked to go to the nearest bank and then was asked to call back and then the victim was given instruction on what to press on the machine. Only when the process was over, the victim realized that what he/she had done was money transfer!
Remember, credit card companies don't ask caller to call back! Also, never give your credit card number and the three digit number at the back of your card away! The combination can be used for making purchases.
