Malayan Banking Berhad ("also known as Maybank"), being the largest bank in Malaysia, has been often used by syndicates to dupe Maybank's customers into revealing their internet user id and password. Once you log in using those so-called Maybank 'links' ........ your money will be all gone within seconds, if not minutes.
Received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org alerting me that my maybank account has been blocked. Is this a Malaysian based email address?
Specifically requested me to click at a maybank2u link to restore my access.
Within minutes, received another email from email@example.com. I clicked on the supposedly link to maybank2u.
And this is what you get to see in a new pop-up window. The exact duplication of the genuine site.
If you were so blur and did key in your username and password, you can wave bye bye to all your monies in your maybank account.
This is known as phishing. These internet syndicates were trying their luck / scams in hoping that blur blur Maybank customers will key in their particulars.
In fact, and sadly too, there are blur blur fellas out there.
