It had started with this email:
Dear CustomerI had clicked on the link, which led to this page:
Your maybank account profile needs to be updated.
Log In into your account to update your profile.
Click here to Log In
Note:TAC will be required during this process
Although the link had led to http://www.tsurinews.co.jp/templates_c/myaccess.online/Access.htm, I suppose that's where Maybank has its website at. After all, it has branches overseas, and the title is "maybank2u.com". So I entered my Username of matcendana and Password, cendana287. This page came up, asking for the TAC:
Since I was too lazy to ask for a TAC, I entered the number 028705. It was correct!...a one-in-a-million chance. The next page asked me for my email address etc... which I furnished, of course.
Then, the bank helpfully informed me that its security team will verify what I had given out and send a confirmation email. It also warned me not to Log In to my account until I had received the email. Okay, they must have very important reasons - doing so might interrupt their computers or something, and I might get sued!
But don't worry about my RM945K - I had also received another email from AHMED MUSA DELIMAH. He's an auditor at the Bank of Africa in Burkina-Faso, and he wants my help to transfer US$9.6 million - that's almost RM30 million...
