Bank fraud by abusing the name of Bank Negara
Since January 2014, an international ring so-called Macau scam has been preying on Malaysians. The criminals misuse the name of Bank Negara seemingly to investigate money laundering. As victims' names are 'mentioned', they have to give 'Bank Negara investigating officer, IO' the details of their bank accounts and credit cards. Hence, the criminals steal.
In any investigation, Bank Negara does not reveal the names and telephone numbers of their investigating officers.
Bank managers know about the Macau fraud. They have briefed the tellers. Yet, some do not protect their clients.
