Scammers always look for new ways to con people of their hard-earned money and six people have already fallen victim to their new scam tactic!

According to Malay Mail, the six victims lost their savings after they downloaded an application sent by scammers.

Bukit Aman’s Commercial Crime Investigation Department said that they received reports from six people ranging from ages 24 – 59  from April 7 to 11. In total, they have lost RM295,350. It has been revealed that four of cases had been reported in Kuala Lumpur and the rest at Penang and Sarawak.

Firstly, the syndicates will make a random call and try to make you believe that they are from the authorities (police, etc.). Then they will send you a link on WhatsApp.

“The victim will be told to use the link to download an application which they claim is from Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) called bnmsafe (8002).”

Subsequently, the victim will be asked to key in their personal and banking information. The syndicates will then log in to the account and transfer out money to another account. They will ask the owner of the account to send them the TAC code too.

“Once the process is completed, the victim will be told to delete the documents which have been filled before realising that the money had been taken from their account.”

The police advise everyone to be more aware of the phone calls they receive and to not share private information with people they do not know. If you are unsure, you can always WhatsApp the Commercial Crime Investigation Department @ 013-2111222.

If you’re unsure whether it’s a scam, follow one rule: NEVER give out your personal information (such as bank account details and TAC code) to anyone. Banks will never ask for these details.

It is easier for the younger generation to identify scams when we see it. However, for our parents and elderly relatives who have a hard time understanding technology, they don’t really know when to be doubtful. Inform them of this new scam so they won’t fall victim to it.
