I received a call from this number just now:
+601300808888

The call starts wil a pre-recorded message saying something about you owe them xx amount of money (in my case, RM4K+++) which was transacted on X date. After that, they allow you to press '0' (or some other key) to connect to an Operator.

I connect to the 'Operator' and ask his name and tried to grill him, this guy very pro and steady and called himself "Brandon". After a while i lose patience, (without telling him any of my personal info, just wanna grill him).

Then i called AmBank (1300808888) and confirm it's a fraud...i was afraid somebody might use my name to apply credit card so just double check to ensure. The operator confirm i don't have a credit card with them and it's a fraud as AMBank will never call their customer about these things and always send letters.

So guys, beware, but next time you kena, maybe try to ask them more question...his staff id, name, who's the manager, how many branch AMBank has...maybe just try to grill him for more info...maybe ask him how to apply loan etc etc...see whether he make a mistake and slip...

JUST REMEMBER DO NOT GIVE YOUR REAL INFORMATION TO THEM.

It happened to me 2 weeks ago with the same bank (AMBank). Grill the operator by asking information about the bank and himself and he suddently put down his phone.

Be very careful when u get this type of call.

I can't remember whether it's +61300808888 or +601300808888, deleted the log already.

It's not a 013 Lar...it's AMBANK customer care line 1-300-80-8888. Go to www.ambank.com.my and see urself.

you should reply as follow:

Really? I'm one of the Fraud Detection Department executive of XXXBank (Bank Negara or whatever).

Please provide me more info, so I can alert the rest of my colleagues to highlight this case!

my sister also received the call this morning, and they ask to call another no. 03-86590214 which they claim is ICBC to report it as a fraud case. After spending 30 minutes on phone with someone claim himself as "Charlie", my sister actually gave her FULL financial detail such as others credit card information, bank account information and etc.

Just after my sister hanged up the phone, and my brother-in-law is quite doubtful about the call, so we key in 86590214 in Google search bar and we found few result which give us a great shock!! (if you understand chinese, you can follow the link http://www.kwongwah.com.my/news/2009/04/25/12.html). My sister immediately call to all bank centre which she have gave out the details and block every transaction immediately.

Thanks to Google!! and someone who contribute this kind of news.

Thanks alot!

Thanks to Matrix for highlighting this issue. I miss a called from this number "+1300808888" and tried calling back just in case it was an important call---no answer. Out of curiosity, i googled it and found out about this thread.

Thank God i didnt pick up the phone call. according to a guy called Izso, he has an article in his blog (http://izso.blogspot.com). He said that when Ambank really call someone, it should appear as a "private number" or a 7-digit normal land line, NOT a toll free line.

Plus, banks will NEVER call us to divulge our personal information unless when we call the customer service and then they will ask one or two of our info (eg.mother's maiden name) for verification.

Hope this helps...smile.gif

Wow, today i received a called from +60321788888 also, automated voice recorder saying i made RM3k transaction using my Ambank Credit card. Crazy, i already cancelled my credit card some times ago. Straight away i press "cancel" button without wasting my time listening to rubbish voice recorder...

Then i call back the same number (Ambank Customer Service) straight away they already said there is fraud, never never receive any calls from that two number 1300808888 & +60321788888 hmm.gif

Why after long time the scam happened they are still unable to do anything about it. People still getting this kinda call "Dear valued customer, bla bla bla.... exactly the same like same as described in this forum"...

Ambank sucks, why they scam using Ambank? Why not other bank? So many enemy out there woh this Ambank, people screwing up ur bank's image... Hahaha

I also got a call from that number, which played an automatic message saying that I have a transaction of RM4k++ on my 'credit card', when in fact I dun have one with that bank at all.

I just ignore.

I'm more curious as to how they mask their real number with the legitimate AmBank customer service number?

guys... please beware... this scam calls still running on...they might call you up from +603 2178 8888, or any 1 300 numbers or + 603999 or 999 ;
for your information, most of malaysian local bank, the have the hotlines to call, the number that are registered as hotline for the bank, it is meant only for them to RECEIVED a call from us, but they CAN'T make calls to us using the same number...

Latest news ; please beware of mail scam, as now they can use "anonymizer mail" to create fake admin mail from any bank, we MUST double check any link provided before proceed with anything..... icon_rolleyes.gif
