|Maybank Alert – Fraudulent Email|
It has been brought to Maybank's attention that some members of the public have again received email messages requesting customers to reactivate their accounts in view of Maybank's new security system and technical update. This is done with the intention to illegally obtain customers' passwords.
Maybank would like to clarify that such email messages are not issued by Maybank and advise customers NOT to login to any of the website links contained in the email. Customers who have clicked on the link in such emails are advised to change their passwords immediately, by directly logging into Maybank2u.com.sg.
Maybank would like to advise all customers to NOT reveal or disclose your passwords to anyone at any time online or on the telephone.
How it works
Phishing emails are fraud attempts as the senders take on the identity of well-known companies such as banks or financial institutions to obtain personal information from the recipients of the email.
These emails will often ask recipients to visit a fake website of a bank through links provided in the email, or ask for personal information such as credit card numbers or online banking IDs and passwords, in order to commit identity theft. They will then use the information they have acquired for illegal purposes or to perform unauthorised access to the recipient's online banking account.
How to protect yourself
- Alert Maybank if you receive an email, letter, notification or a telephone call requesting for information relating to your PIN/access ID or username/password
- Do not provide your banking particulars, such as ID, password, bank account numbers, credit card or account details by email
- If you receive an email asking you to reactivate or update your account for any purpose or to provide personal account information, please contact Maybank to confirm the validity of the email
- For secured online banking access, always enter the URL address (www.maybank2u.com.sg) directly on your web browser.
