You better lodge a police report and send a complaint to BNM, the complaint letter will be attentioned to either the directors of CIMB bank, Dato Sri Najzir himself or the Head of Retail Banking.

A similar fraud involves EON bank also
i have already lodged a police report last friday evening upon discovering these fraudulent charges made in my name.

update.

i have lodged credit card fraud involving identity theft reports with both BNM and CIMB today. as noted by some members here, it all reeks of an insider job in connivance with an external syndicate capable of creating false NRIC cards.

here's hoping that they are caught and convicted together with the exoneration of my goodself of these fraudulent charges.

oh, and a big thank you to pm'er n. azlan for those detail for the specialist lawyers and also for that other thing. here's hoping your friends in there can expedite the issue.

Wow, this is a hell of an elaborate fraud and takes a lot of insider knowledge, especially to fabricate a complete fake IC, reissue your SIM card and receive the credit card.

Thanks for sharing.

BTW from what I know Bank Negara regulations state consumers are liable up to a maximum amount of RM50 in cases of credit card fraud.

i have no intention of paying even rm50, gareth. and yes, this is an elaborate fraud, but i believe it was a very desperate one as well. if the bank were to read the chain of events described in my police report together with the other documentary evidence enclosed, they would be well advised to start an internal investigation.

you are welcome, cmho.

i would also like to add if you were to suffer network or sim card failure within two weeks of activation or receiving a replacement card for another card that never arrived, please take precautionary measures as well.

mavik, please share the word. we might not be able to prevent fraud 100%, but we sure can as hell make them squirm and take even bigger risks of either exposure or making mistakes if they wish to commit identity theft and credit card fraud.

it's ok with me, OM. we just need to spread the word in order to make these fraudsters squirm and make their jobs so much harder that they are forced to take on even bigger risks. we can't curb or totally stop this, but we sure as hell can make them sweat for all it is worth.

i left out several crucial incidents here but it is has been fully flagged to PDRM, BNM, and CIMB. the activation, transactions, and user confirmation were carried in a slick manner but their timing indicated desperation to cash in onto my card. in their sloppiness, they left several red flags in their wake. hopefully CIMB picks it up and closes in onto the source.
