Maybank B40 Subsidy Scam : Do NOT Click Or Call!

Please do NOT click on the message, or call the telephone number. Just delete it and warn your family and friends!
Why This Maybank B40 Subsidy Offer Is Just A Scam
Let us show you why this Maybank B40 subsidy offer (and similar offers) is just a scam.
If you spot any of these warning signs, BACK OFF and DO NOT PROCEED!
Warning Sign #1 : No Such B40 Subsidy Program
The Malaysian government has not announced any B40 subsidy program.
Neither would Maybank offer free money for the B40. It’s a bank, not a charity.
Warning Sign #2 : Bad Grammar
The bad English grammar should be a warning sign that this is not a legitimate offer.
Warning Sign #3 : Not Using The Real Maybank Domain
A genuine Maybank campaign would use the real Maybank domain – www.maybank.com.my.
The use of a different domain should warn you that this is not a legitimate Maybank website.
In fact, Google Chrome will warn you that this website is a phishing attack – to get your personal and banking information.
Warning Sign #4 : Asking You For Your Information
Think about it – they already have your information because you have an account with them!
Even if there is a legitimate B40 subsidy programme, they only need you to log into your Maybank account. They do NOT need you to register your details again.
These scammers ask you for these details so they can use them in phishing calls, to convince you that they are really from Maybank.
Warning Sign #5 : Asking You For Your Bank Login!!!
This is a BIG warning sign. Banks will NEVER ask you for your user name and password.
If you key in this information, you are basically giving these scammers access to your Maybank account.
They will call or message you and try to get your TAC (Transaction Authorisation Code) number that is sent to your mobile number. DO NOT GIVE THAT TO THEM!
If you sent them your user name and password, please contact the bank immediately, and change your password!
