SCAM CALL have been getting more aggressive than ever in lately period.
Author just got a SCAM CALL and this encourage me to share to the public to help raise awareness about it.
Do you know Malaysia is the Top 20 Nation in the global that is most affected by scam calls?
The below is part of the Articles I refer from nst.com.my.
“Malaysia is the market that receives the biggest percentage of scam calls in the world at 63 per cent.
“Most of the calls are from financial services (21 per cent), insurance (10 per cent), operators (five per cent) and debt collectors (one per cent).
“For the past 12 months, Malaysia has seen a 24 per cent increase in spam calls, from 6.7 to 8.3 spam calls per month. Scam calls from fake insurance and debt collectors are common. The Macau and Astro scams too have been flooding the market over the past year."
And this is my experience over the Scam Call which claim to be calling from Public Bank. The guy have mention my name in Full and saying that I have not been paying the credit card bill for two months.
I told him that I don't even have a credit card and he mention that in his system showed that I have a credit card under Public Bank and my name is Mr XXX.
(Then I think this is the next step where he is going to ask me for personal details to clarify and perhaps offer me some good deal or card number etc.)
Then I mention to him that I dont even have a Public Bank account. He mention that in the system have and bla bla bla... End up I told him, is it according to your Fraud List system, then suddenly he just hung up. The number showed in is 03-9418 5197.
Well folks, just be more careful and Bank will never call in to ask for very detailed personal details for clarification. If you worry on what being mention in the phone call, you can go to the bank and verify. So PLEASE DO NOT give any sensitive personal details in Phone Call!
