Today i received an email from "MAYBANK(". ERROR NOTICE - Account Problem...

The detail as below:

"I started to feel panicking......must login immediately to change my account password,
else later someone might hack my account..." if you thought so.......meaning you are in the hook now!

For someone who knew little IT knowledge. , you might feel........WOW....What a great Maybank,
introducing added security with a Advanced Secured Database MX-225. If you believe so,
once you login with your username and password,
all your money in your account will immediately transfer to an "unknown account",
and left the "ZEROooooooooo0" in your account...

This we known as PHISHING...

Hold on...let me try to open the page and see how the interface look like....

O great....this is what we call when the "FIREFOX" meet the "PHISHING site". Firefox notified and said this is a Reported Web Forgery! Meaning if you are clever enough, you should stop here....Let see what will i get to click on "Ignore this warning" and insist to move on...

Well, Firefox still wanna to be clever and inform u this is a "REPORTED WEB FORGERY" in red colour to tell the stupid idoit like me...

Anyway, too bad....the page is gone...meaning it dont existed anymore...and i couldnt access that page to check my account balance...BAKA!! Never think of that!

If you are my loyal reader, i think you are aware of my previous article "RHB BANK ONLINE BANKING PHISHING" last year...

They will give you an exact same interface of login screen and you thought it was real. And then you might asked, why the page doesnt exist anymore...BECAUSE when a liar wanna to cheat you, will him/her will stand at the same point and wait for you to come? Obviously not, they will FISHING....and wait the fish come....when no fish....they will move on to another pond...

Updated 06-Nov:
This is another copy of email i received today

Just happen to bump into your blog. I found the same email in my google spam folder. haha. Looks like hotmail needs some security upgrade for letting these kind of email get through to inbox.

thanks for your comment.

well...i think is very hard to eliminate this kind of email...
The best way to avoid it is
the local ISP should blocked the access to these PHISHING domain name, meaning block all the traffic that allow to connect to that domain name...although not all the new domain name can be block, but at least some will do..
