There is also a new scam going around regarding credit card, which I happened to experience it myself.
On 13.4.2009 at around 6.52 p.m, I received a call from this number 601300808888.
As usual, it’s a computerized voice that did the talking saying that I have an outstanding payment of RM4,900.00 with AmBank (credit card).
The voice will then said press 0 to repeat or press 9 for customer service (which luckily I pressed 9).
A guy with answered my call and as usual asking for my ID number.
When I refused to give the said info and asked to talk to his manager, he just hung up on me.
So, my advice is that :-
1. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR I.D (NRIC/PASSPORT etc) to any unknown party who is asking for your banking information.
2. Kindly clarify this with the bank, get a clarification/confirmation that you did not have any outstanding payment.
3. Lodge a complaint with the bank and/or Bank Negara
4. Lodge a police report.
A police inspector also informed me that if the number is 010/012/013/014/016/017/018 followed by 00, the number is not valid/registered with the phone company which make it hard for the police to trace.
