KUCHING: Sarawak state security director Datuk Yusoff Nook allegedly lost RM8,000 to a phishing scam after receiving a fake email requesting he update his online banking account details.
Yusoff received the email at around 10.30am, and not suspecting anything amiss, he followed the instructions contained within.
He soon received an SMS from his bank informing him that RM8,000 had been transferred from his account to a third party.
Kuching district police chief ACP Roslan Bek Ahmad confirmed receiving a report of the case.
"The complainant had updated his online banking account following an instruction he received via email. Soon after, he was informed by his bank that he had transferred RM8,000 to a third party's account," he added.
He said the case would be investigated under Section 4(1) of the Computer Crimes Act.
Roslan also urged the public not to update or reveal any bank account details through email or by phone.
