Bank customers, do not reveal your PIN or password and computer logon details to anyone seeking to obtain them by phone or e-mail.

And those who receive calls or e-mails on the pretext of urging customer to update their details should advise their banks immediately.

This is one of the security tips outlined by the Association of Banks in Malaysia to ensure customers PIN or password are not compromised when using Internet banking in view of the recent “phishing” scam.

The associations’ executive director Wong Suan Lye said banks that offer Internet Banking services would not request customers to reveal or verify their PIN or passwords for whatever reasons via e-mail, a hyperlink through the e-mail or by phone.

“Without PIN or password, the fraudster would not be able to access the customers’ Internet Banking accounts. If in doubt, contact your respective banks for verification,” she said in a press statement.
