Find out what happened, and whether you should be concerned!
Public Bank Segambut : Employee Positive For COVID-19!
On 15 April 2021, Public Bank announced that an employee at their Segambut branch in KL tested positive for COVID-19.
Public Bank closed their Segambut branch, for deep cleaning and sanitisation, from 16 April 2021until further notice.
Other employees who came into close contact with the affected staff member have been placed under home quarantine.
Public Bank Segambut : Official Statement On COVID-19 Exposure
This was the notice Maybank posted on the COVID-19 case at their Segambut store.:
KUALA LUMPUR – Public Bank Berhad (“PBB”) confirms that one (1) of its employees from Public Bank – Segambut branch, in W.P Kuala Lumpur had tested positive for COVID-19 on 15 April 2021.

Public Bank Segambut COVID-19 Infection : Do NOT Panic
Even though a branch employee was infected, you should not panic…
They are definitely tracing contacts, which is why it is important to log your movements with MySejahtera, or the physical logbook.
While banks offer physical logbooks, we highly recommend that you use the MySejahtera mobile app, because it allows for easier and faster contact tracing.
Using the MySejahtera mobile app also obviates the need to sign a physical logbook, which usually means using a shared pen – an unnecessary risk factor.
If you happen to be in that Public Bank branch when that affected employee was present, you will be contacted and asked to self-quarantine and undergo a COVID-19 screening test.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus is easily destroyed by soap, so the deep cleaning operation will definitely clean the branch of any infectious particles.
But most important of all – we need to remember to always wear a face mask in public. Face masks have been proven to prevent the spread and reduce the risk of being infected.
You should also keep physically distanced from other people, and maintain good hand hygiene.

These Facebook seafood scam pages have a simple modus operandi :
offer online seafood delivery at very attractive prices and even free delivery
advertise on Facebook to reach out to people, and avert Facebook’s ire
ghost you after you deposit money into their bank accounts
delete your negative comments on their Facebook page
Even though many people reported Ocean Sense and East Malaysia Seafood Agent as scam pages, Facebook declined to take action and they are STILL ACTIVE.
Seafood Scams On Facebook : How To Detect Them!
The problem with seafood scams on Facebook is how easily scammers create them. Even if they get banned by Facebook, they will simply create a new one.
Facebook also partly enables them to continue with their scam by ignoring reports, claiming that there is nothing on the scam pages that go against their Community Standards. Duh – as if the scammers will post on Facebook admitting that they are scammers.
So how do we detect these seafood scams on Facebook?
Step 1 : Check List Of Reported / Confirmed Seafood Scams
The first thing you should do is run a quick search online on the name of the seafood vendor. See if anyone has reported them to be a scam.
Confirmed Seafood Scams On Facebook
Multiple people have reported that these Facebook seafood vendors have cheated them :
事情是这样的，刚才我去银行处理事务然后再存款，M银行大排长龙好不容易排到我，下一个就轮到我存款了！这个时候执法人员进来拍照了，然后要大家把ic拿出来交给他，并且请我们提款之后在外等候。我看了看脚下，幸好有站在格子里保持安全距离 也有scan My Sejaterah，我想说乖乖配合就好了。这时M银行经理出来了，他请执法人员去一旁，执法人员说对她说：我昨天已经警告你们了为什么你们还不遵守SOP？M银行经理说是顾客Degil不遵守SOP。
However, it doesn’t mean it is a safe account. At least 61 people have looked up the same number.
Oddly enough, when he asked for the bank account for the company (whose SSM record he furnished above), he issued him an invoice at a different company, and told him to bank it into “his relative’s company” instead :
Scammers are now targeting Malaysians with THREE fake CIMB Bank scams regarding online or credit card payments.
Please SHARE this scam alert with your family and friends, so they won’t get cheated!
THREE Fake CIMB Bank Call + SMS Scams!
Due to the COVID-19 lockdown, many Malaysians are now purchasing more online, and paying for those purchases with their credit cards.
This has attracted scammers who are now targeting both online purchasers and credit card users. In these new scams, they are pretending to be CIMB Bank.
Scam #1 : Credit Card Payment Authorisation
In this scam, the scammers used an automated call system with the number +113818415.
After you accept the call, a pre-recorded message will ask you to verify that you have just charged RM XXXX to your credit card, with these options :
Press 1 to accept the charge to your credit card
Press 2 to speak to a CIMB bank officer
Needless to say, when you opt to speak to a bank officer (fearing that you are a victim of a hacking attempt), the scammer will now convince you to transfer your money from your bank account to the bank’s account for “safe keeping”.
There is no such thing. Banks will NEVER ask you to transfer money out of your account. If they suspect fraud, they can simply disable your credit card, and deny payment to the merchant.
Scam #2 : Outstanding Credit Card Debt
In a different version of the first scam, the automated call system used a mobile number – +6012-22452090.
This time, the pre-recorded message will inform you that you owe RM XXXX on your CIMB Bank credit card.
Again, you will be offered the opportunity to speak with a CIMB Bank officer – the scammer – who will try to convince you to pay the money into a different account, or give him / her your login details.
A real bank officer will NEVER ask you to transfer money to a different bank account, or request for your login details. If you have outstanding credit card debt, the bank will just charge you interest on it.
Scam #3 : Online Purchase Warning
Happening concurrently with the scam calls is this CIMB Bank SMS scam campaign.
You may receive something like this, which looks like a genuine SMS from CIMB Bank informing you about a charge to your credit card.
Of course, the mobile number – +6013-688-1813 is a dead giveaway for those who are alert. But at a glance, it looks genuine enough.
If you call the scam number – 1800-81-9767, you will be connected to the scammer, who will then try to convince you to transfer money from your bank account to a CIMB Bank account for “safe keeping”.
Just like in the first scam example, no bank will ever ask you to transfer money out of your own bank account. Even if they suspect fraud, they can simply lock your account.
And again, if they suspect your credit card has been misused, they can simply disable your credit card, and deny payment to the merchant.
Warn Everyone About Bank Scams!
Such scams, whether they are from CIMB Bank or any other bank, has the potential to cost the victim A LOT OF MONEY.
So please warn your family and friends about these scams.Share this article as widely as possible.
And if you receive a similar call, please report it to Maybank, Bank Negara and the police.
Here are different bank scams that you may want to be alert about :
* However, please note that the CCID database is not comprehensive, because scammers can easily change their bank accounts and telephone numbers. Also, many victims are unaware they were scammed, and thus never reported them to the police.
The safest thing to do is NOT to send anyone money. Visit them directly to ascertain their authenticity, and donate directly to them.
