Latest! Maybank2u SCAM!

I discovered this new scam today. Usually I dont really check my junk mails but today, somehow I decided to go thru them one by one. And I stumbled upon this!

Guys and girl, please dont fall for these!

Check this out. Its a print screen from my email and I have already highlighted some important notices in the email that says its a scam.

1. From above, you can see that the sender's email is xxx@maybank2u.my. We all know that, Maybank2u is running on www.maybank2u.com.my and not as the above.

2. Then again, the whole email was signed off as www.maybank2u.com.my. But when I mouse over both the links, that was the link I got. That means, when you click on any of the 2 links, it does not bring you to the official Maybank2u website but to the link that is shown above.

This is taken from Maybank2u's Online FAQ.

1. What is phishing?

Phishing is a process where scamsters trick you into giving them your user IDs, passwords or credit card details, so that they can gain access to your online banking accounts.

Victims are known to receive phone calls, SMS or most frequently emails claiming to be from a bank or trading partner, asking them for personal information to re-register or update their accounts. Soon after they've provided this information, they usually find that their banking accounts have been cleared out.

2. How do I recognise a phishing scam / site?

Here are a couple of ways you can spot a phishing scam

* you receive a phone call, SMS or email asking you to provide personal/ security information or TAC
* a phishing email link, when clicked, will open into an un-secure login site, with its URL most likely to begin with http, instead of the secure https
* the phishing site's URL may contain misspelled words, like "Mybank" instead of Maybank.

3. How do I prevent phishing attempts?

Here are several safe tips to minimise threats of "phishing" and similar scams

* Do not trust any phone calls, SMS, e-mail, web and chat that requests for your personal details and identity.
* Never click on a URL link in an e-mail or fill out forms in e-mail messages and un-trusted websites.
* Go directly to your bank's web site to access Internet Banking and manually key in the company's web site address in the browser's URL bar.
* Keep up-to-date with the latest security patches. Update your Operating System and Internet Browser with the latest patches, making sure all security and critical patches are applied. Use anti-virus software and, if possible, personal firewalls. Ensure your anti-virus software is up to date with the latest signatures.
* Scanning your PC regularly from a popular anti-virus web site is also recommended.
* Lastly, if an online money-making scheme seems too good to be true, it probably is. This generally holds true for off-line schemes as well!

Again I say, dont ever fall for this. If not, Dato Michael Chong will be very busy again. LOL!

Till then, please be very careful of what you click online, take good care and God bless!

I received a reply from Maybank2u regarding this scam. This is what they said.

RIP Yasmin Ahmad (1/7/1958 - 25/7/2009)

Internationally renowned Malaysian film director, Yasmin Ahmad has passed on to be in a better place at about 11.25pm on Saturday(25/7/2009).

I believe this is a big blow to many of us. Known for especially for her heart moving festive season advertisements, they have indeed touched our hearts some way or another. It is worse when Hari Raya is around the corner and we will all be missing her heart moving ads.

Yasmin too broke the local film scene with several great Malaysian movies whom each of them talks about what our nation really is like. Not to forget the moral values that is instilled in them. It all began with "Sepet" in the year 2004 all the way up to "Talentime" that came out this year.


We will all miss you(and your ads and movies too!) Yasmin, it was all GREAT while you were at it.

RIP Yasmin. My heartfelt condolences goes out to her family and closed ones.

Till then, take care and God bless!

In life, its true that sometimes women win. Just got this forwarded mail and it seems quite true but I know, not all of them will happen to me.

In a way, some man are just plain..... You know what I want to say. :)

Here it is, just for LAUGHTER this Monday morning.


A couple drove down a country road for several miles, not saying a word.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument andneither of them wanted
to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules, goats,
and pigs, the husband asked sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'
'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'


A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day...
30,000 to a man's 15,000.
The wife replied, 'The reason has to be because we have to repeat
everything to men...
The husband then turned to his wife and asked, 'What?'


A man said to his wife one day, 'I don't know how you can be
so stupid and so beautiful all at the same time.' The wife responded,
'Allow me to explain. God made me beautiful so you would be attracted
to me;
God made me stupid so I would be attracted to you!'


A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving
each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the
next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early
morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the
silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, 'Please wake me at
5:00 AM.' He left it where he knew she would find it. The next
morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had
missed his flight. Furious, he was about to go and see why his wife
hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper by the bed. The
paper said, 'It is 5:00 AM. Wake up.'
Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

LOL! Till then, take care and God bless!

p.s. Men, dont get caught with these again. Sometimes, its just easier to give in. =) IMHO, ego KILLS!
