In most cases, victims of online scams only realise they’ve been taken for a ride after the transactions are done. Many a time, it’s heartbreaking because the money involved is not a small sum, but tens of thousands!

Thankfully, Malaysians can now determine whether the recipient’s account is trustworthy and avoid being scammed with the help of this portal.

Here’s the cool part:

This portal is actually run by Commercial Crime Investigation Department (CCID) of PDRM and it allows us to check whether the recipient’s account was previously involved in online scams, according to FMT and Oriental Daily.

“Through this portal, the public can check whether the bank accounts were previously reported to be involved in cheating. If there has been instances of cheating, it will be shown in the search box,” CCID’s deputy director Ahmad Noordin said. 

Here’s how you use it:

  1. Simply visit the website: http://ccid.rmp.gov.my/semakmule/
  2. Key in the recipient’s account number

If the bank account had previously been reported to the authority, a warning will pop up, like the picture below.

Having said that, members of the public are still urged to be careful with who they’re dealing with even if there’s no red flags. Always be wary guys! Currently, the portal got over 460,900 searches done by members of the public even though it is still in trial stage. That’s a huge figure!

This function is especially useful for those who prefer to buy things from strangers online such as through Facebook. Pm best price?

Authorities also warned and reminded consumers not to divulge their bank account information as many commercial criminals love using others’ accounts for money laundering and conducting illegal businesses.

So be sure to put it to good use and avoid falling for future scams. If you got any doubts, it’s always better to be safe than sorry!
