Lossing RM100,000 due to phishing

At least four persons suffered losses more than RM100,000 when they visited the wrong website, identical to the genuine bank's website. Without realising that the URL look almost identical too, they entered they user names and passwords.

All four are professionals, aged between 25 to 30 years old.

A 28-year-old woman, being suspected as a member of the phishing syndicate, was detained on June 13. She works as an IT consultant in Kuala Lumpur. Police believe that the syndicate has been operating since mid-May and is based in Nigeria.
