PETALING JAYA: Maybank has issued a notice on its Facebook page warning of a phishing email that fraudsters are using to trick customers into sharing their login details and credit card information.

The notice includes an example of a fake email purporting to be from the Maybank technical department, which claims that the recipient has had their account locked for security reasons.

In the example email is also a fake login button, with instructions stating that customers who receive the email and do not verify themselves will have their transactions blocked.

Maybank states in the post that it will never share links for customers to click on, or ask for personal banking details.

It also urged customers to refrain from clicking on suspicious links sent via email, chats, or SMSes, never share usernames or passwords, and never divulge TAC (transaction authorisation code) or OTP (one-time password) codes.
