Do Not Reveal Personal Info Over The Phone

I read the papers that there are people going around, making calls to try to dupe people into believing that they are calling from Bank Negara Malaysia, and trying to get these "victims" to disclose their personal information over the phone, particularly their credit card numbers.

While we may sometimes face banking or credit card issues, our bank will never call us up to ask for our information over the telephone or even send us an email. We must always be alert especially when these traps over the phone are so rampant.

In any case, always reverify information that come in by phone or email, or even though people we know. We have to be on guard at all times.
