Losing RM7k despite not sharing out the OTP, contacted bank to freeze account to prevent further loss

The bank account of a Chinese chef was suspected of being hacked. After stealing RM7,000 from his account, the hacker also tried to transfer another RM10,000.

Fortunately, the 22-year-old chef noticed it in time and contacted the bank to freeze the transfer to prevent further loss.

The victim, accompanied by his family, later went to the police station to report the case and the relevant bank to file a complaint.

According, he questioned if there were loopholes in the bank’s security system, which led to opportunities for hackers.

The victim’s father said that his son suddenly received a one-time password (OTP) message from the bank on one evening, and found that RM7,000 in his bank account was gone.

His son immediately contacted the customer service of the relevant bank and asked to freeze the bank account immediately.

He successfully prevented the hackers from attempting to transfer the RM10,000 from his bank account.

The father said that his son had never downloaded any suspicious mobile applications and application download packages (APKs).

He added that his son did not disclose the personal information of his bank account to a third party.

He suspected that there were loopholes in the security system of the relevant bank, which led to the possibility of hacking.
