For the past several months while I’ve been cleaning up my junk mails, I’ve come accross a couple of mails just like this one:


Dear maybank2u customer,

This is your official notification that your account has been Limited. We recently reviewed your credit card and it seems that you are using the same credit card for 2 accounts. As you can read in our User Agreement ( section 5.11 ) opening multiple accounts is strictly forbidden. You are now requested to provide information relevant to your account. Capital One Bank will investigate the matter promptly and if the investigation is in your favor, we will restore your account.. If you fail to complete the verification in the next 24 hours your account will be suspended.

Here’s how to get started:

1. Log in to maybank2u online account (click here).

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.

The above mail was sent from this address:

This guys just don’t give up don’t they? only fools would fall for this, but hey, I’m sure there are someone out there who had already submitted their TAC through the link that they provided, well, I feel sorry for those fellas.  But I could be wrong, as the URL has been reported as web forgery and is now properly blocked:

Web Forgery

Web Forgery

Not bad, and I was just having a thought to send them these following details just for fun….

User ID: ‘nicetryfukers’

Password: ‘3278999’ (in foochow, it rhymes with certain foul words LOL!)

Guess that’s not possible then, hehe!
