Kuala Lumpur: Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) mengesan satu bentuk penipuan dalam talian melibatkan beberapa kes yang menggunakan laman web Maybank2U palsu bagi mengambil wang dalam akaun mangsa tanpa disedari.

Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersial (JSJK) Bukit Aman Datuk Zainuddin Yaacob berkata, dalam kes ini, sindiket ini akan menghantar e-mel kepada mangsa yang kononnya e-mel itu dihantar oleh pihak Maybank dengan menyatakan akaun milik mangsa mempunyai masalah keselamatan.

Beliau berkata, mangsa kemudiannya diminta untuk menekan pautan yang disertakan di dalam e-mel berkenaan.

"Setelah pautan ditekan laman sesawang seperti Maybank2U akan dipaparkan, namun tanpa disedari ianya merupakan laman sesawang palsu dan mangsa kemudiannya dikehendaki mengemas kini butiran peripadi, kata laluan serta nombor telefon melalui laman sesawang terbabit.

"Tidak lama setelah pengemaskinian dilakukan, mangsa akan mendapati wang di dalam akaun miliknya telah berkurangan," katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

Beliau berkata, berdasarkan rekod, PDRM menerima sebanyak empat laporan berkaitan kes penipuan melalui pautan Maybank2U palsu membabitkan kerugian RM22,300 dan suspek belum dikenal pasti.

PETALING JAYA: Maybank has issued a scam alert warning customers about a new fake Maybank2u website created by fraudsters to steal banking information.

In a post on Twitter, Maybank shared that fraudsters will attempt to lure customers to login to bogus Maybank2u sites through messages sent via WhatsApp, SMS or email.

These messages aim to hoodwink customers into revealing their personal details – such as username, password, phone number and IC number – typically with false claims that their accounts have been compromised or judged as “high risk” by the bank’s system and that the user is required to “re-verify” their details.

Maybank stated that the company will never send reminders via SMS, email or WhatsApp with links urging users to login or update their Maybank2u account.
As an added security measure, it also reminded customers to manually key in the Maybank2u URL – maybank2u.com.my – to access their account as links provided by others may not be safe.

The company previously issued an alert about a fake Maybank2u website in February which was used by scammers for phishing attacks. Customers were lured to the fraudulent website through a promotional post on Facebook with the promise of winning some prizes.

Customers who may have revealed their Maybank2u login details on scam websites are urged to contact the bank immediately at (03) 5891 4744.

The number of online jewellery scam cases have risen, with 37 cases involving losses amounting to RM239,530 recorded in the first three months this year.9 April 2021

KUALA LUMPUR: The number of online jewellery scam cases have risen, with 37 cases involving losses amounting to RM239,530 recorded in the first three months this year.

Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) director Datuk Zainuddin Yaacob said the scam cases recorded in the period was the highest in the past two years.

He said throughout 2019, 21 cases were reported involving losses of RM148,444 and the total rose in the subsequent year (2020) to 44 cases involving RM261,954.

"The development of communication and technology have created online business opportunities, with unlimited access and connectivity, especially when the country is facing the Covid-19 pandemic.
"Therefore, it has become the platform of choice for consumers, but at the same time, it has brought about scams involving the sale of non-existent items," he said in a statement today.

Zainuddin said his department has implemented various measures to ensure that the efforts to curb these activities are effective.

"Yet from the prevention aspect, the involvement of the public is much needed and I urge consumers to be careful in all online jewellery transactions.

The public is reminded not to believe any offer of jewellery that is below market price especially when they're made by individuals you cannot verify," he said.

Scammers using more sophisticated tactics PDF Print E-mail

Mengenai NCCC15 APR 2021
FEDERATION of Malaysian Consumers Associations (Fomca) and the National Consumer Complaints Centre (NCCC) would like to alert Malaysian consumers on the sudden spike of scam-related complaints.

Scammers are becoming more sophisticated with their tactics and are hoping consumers would let their guard down. Consumers are urged not to provide their personal, banking or any details to strangers.

Fomca has been receiving around 450 complaints and enquiries related to scams since January. Based on Fomca’s observation, the scammers take advantage of vulnerable consumers, and surprisingly some of the victims are highly-educated.

It is becoming more difficult to know and differentiate between a scam and a legitimate business.

Fomca would also like to urge the relevant authorities to be proactive and play their role in curbing unscrupulous activities. Many consumers are still not aware of scamming activities.

The Communications and Multimedia Ministry and Malaysian Communications Multimedia Commission should play an important role to educate consumers through their channels.

The Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry also needs to frequently publish and update all scam-related cases on their website so consumers will be well informed.

Enforcement agencies must also charge these culprits, and increase fines and jail terms for these offences. Scammers are constantly trying to steal consumers’ personal data using fake emails, websites, phone calls and even text messages by using various ways to trick people into providing personal information like bank account numbers and other valuable information, such as credit card numbers.

Pengarah Jabatan Siasatan Jenayah Komersial (JSJK) Bukit Aman, Datuk Zainuddin Yaacob berkata, berdasarkan kajian, penipuan membabitkan barang kemas mencatatkan antara kes penipuan tertinggi.

"Pada 2019, sebanyak 21 kes dilaporkan membabitkan kerugian berjumlah RM148,444 dan jumlah kes meningkat kepada 44 kes pada tahun lalu dengan kerugian RM261,954.

"Bagi tempoh tiga bulan pertama tahun ini, sebanyak 37 kes direkodkan dengan jumlah kerugian RM239,530," katanya dalam kenyataan, hari ini.

Zainuddin berkata, peningkatan jumlah kes yang direkodkan dalam kes berkenaan perlu ditangani dengan serius.

"Perkembangan teknologi dan komunikasi mewujudkan peluang perniagaan secara dalam talian kerana akses mudah dan tanpa had khususnya ketika negara berdepan penularan pandemik Covid-19.

"Ia sekali gus menjadikan platform e-dagang menjadi pilihan pengguna. Namun, perkembangan ini juga turut mewujudkan jenayah penipuan penjualan barangan tidak wujud," katanya.

Beliau berkata, pihaknya sudah melaksanakan langkah-langkah yang perlu untuk memastikan usaha pembanterasan dilakukan dengan efektif serta berkesan.
