Scams occur across multiple banks, financial institutions and shopping platforms and anywhere else that receives and sends money online – and yes, it could happen to anyone!

Taking to Facebook, famed Nephrologist Dr. Rafidah Abdullah began her three-post rant on Facebook, which began with her bidding her last goodbye to the bank in question, due to their inactivity in countering a scam that costed her RM13,000!

Here is her story.

“After almost 30 years with C***, today I am truly disappointed with their lack of security. How is it possible that a transaction via their online app amounting to RM13,000 circa 2 – 2.30pm did not ring any alarm bells?”

“No TAC was requested. My money was gone just like that.”

“This is absolutely ridiculous. My money is not safe with this bank. I have reported this matter to the bank, police and anyone who can take action. So far as I know, the scammer has taken my money, and it will not be returned. 

With 20k likes, 5.5k comments and 9.6k shares, a part 2 was published earlier this morning further explaining her outburst.

“For everyone’s knowledge, I did not install any questionable apps on my phone, which may have led to the breach of my personal information. I have taken precautionary steps now to clear my phone of all apps, which also includes a total reset of my phone.”

“I have already accepted the fact that the money is gone. But based on my research, many have fallen victim to such scams and it saddens me to see senior citizens and people in need losing their source of income and savings.”

“Despite all this, what have the banks done to curb scammers/hackers?”

“I sincerely hope that Bank Negara Malaysia will take stern action against banks that harbour thieves who steal from Malaysians.”

“I think it is safer to place my money under my pillow for now.”

Let’s hope that this revelation will spur authorities to take more stern action against culprits who victimise users like you and me.
