M2U Scam! I've Lost All My Money

Posted by Joshua |

This morning I've received an email from Maybank that the need to update my M2U account due to some payment restrictions issue.



The email's outlook kinna real and when I hover mouse to Online Banking Log on and it shown a Australia website link. lol! redrippledesign you failed!

Out of my curiousity I clicked on the website and see how professional they can be? At the same time can share with friends not to get conned/cheated.


The logon look as good as the real M2U page.


I simply key in a ID and password.

Then it prompted to a page to verify details such as email, password and NRIC. Now all the details has saved by the Aussie.

The finaly step for them to transfer all the money from you account. TAC number.

All the steps now is sufficient to drain out all your hard earn money.

Can claim back the money by reporting to the police or Maybank management?

The answer is "NO"
Once you have send your TAC number, it mean you have honour the transaction.

So be careful if you received this kind of scam email or suspicious links. Get contact with the bank if you not sure what you are doing.
