Here’s a list of scams that I have received via short message service on my mobile phone. I have highlighted the incriminating keywords in bold that should never be revealed to anyone in any situation.

Basic rule of thumb is: if in doubt, don’t do it!

Scam 1

From: 66600
RM0. To activate yr EON Bank Card,type CDACT nric/p.port nocard no & sms to 33188.If u hv not rec’d yr cd, pls call 03-26161133.TQ

Scam 2

From: 66600
RM0. Your EON Bank Card has been couriered to you. If you do not receive it, please call 03-26161133 for assistance. Thank You.

    I also recievd similar sms as below:
    From: 66600
    Your Hong Leong Credit Card limit (issued by former EON Bank) will be increased to RM6500. To accept, sms YESINCIC No.. to 33188 by 26/01/12.

    I am not sure, this is scam or not. Will get back to you all once i called the Banck customer service.

    I just get this SMS:

    02-Apr-2014 9:34am
    RM0.00 HLB card ending 9607 has been debited with MYR366.00 at *AIR ASIA SE. If you did not perform this tranx, pls call Ctc Ctr.

    is it a scam ?

    @Malphin the message is not asking for your personal info but it’s no harm to check with Hong Leong Bank to check your recent credit card transactions, IF you do have a card from them.
