Extra careful..

I got this email last Monday..I'm kind of worried that my account might be suspended for not replying this email within 24 hours so I immediately called Maybank and asked whether they will send this kind of email to customers. The Maybank officer asked me to delete the email and never respond to any email from maybank2u. They look real when they ask for our TAC number but actually this is their tactics to hijack your Maybank2U account details. Maybank will never ask for any verification or notification thru email. Be careful when u receive any e-mail like this:

Subject Dear member maybank2u,

Dear maybank2u customer,

We are hereby notifying you that we've recently suffered a DDos-Attack on one of our's Internet Banking server.

Here's how to get started:

2. You must request for TAC online via maybank2u - your TAC will be sent via SMS to the mobile phone number you registered at the ATM.
( you can find the "request a TAC" button in the right menu of your account "Utilities" )

3. Logout from your account and close the browser.

4. When you have received the TAC (Transaction Authorization Code) on your mobile phone, Log in to our secured verification server and submit the requested information(Account user ID, password and TAC).CLICK HERE to go on our secured server.

5. Please allow 48 hours for processing.

Please comply and thanks for understanding

There are fraudsters who keep sending this type of fraudulent e-mail into your Yahoo! mailbox. and they even bought a domain name similar to Maybank2U’s.

So, when you receive e-mails like this :

1. Don’t ever trust those e-mails asking you to login from the link they provided.
2. Access to the website of your bank by typing in the URL directly.
3. Most common frauds target login details of PayPal, Google Adsense, Maybank2U and other banking accounts. Many have been conned and their account stripped bare. So watch out for those e-mails, NEVER login via the links they provided.

Just be extra careful and stay conscious when you're online. Check first before you disclose any information and just call the Maybank officer for any inquiries, they are more happy to help you for any clarifications.

Thank God I called the Maybank officer before I log on to that phishing website. Some of us just not aware of this sometimes, just post this as a reminder.. ;-)
