This is to share with everyone, especially those who are heavily depending on Maybank2u online banking. Recently I was made believe in receiving an email from Maybank2u asking me to restore my account access as it has so many failed login attempt.


I was shocked, spontaneously I wanted to click on the Maybank2u Log On item as shown in the picture above. Lucky I realize, when pointing the mouse at Log On link it is actually pointing  a different kind of URL which is not linking to Maybank2u website.


The link shown https://www.maybank2u.com.my is also NOT pointing to Maybank2u website. The reply address was also questionable, why use a domain name that does not belong to Maybank?

This is what they called phishing. According to Wikipedia phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. You may check out the details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing

So, be careful with your valuable data & information. Make sure you don’t click internet LINKs blindly, especially those concerning your banking information.

This should not stop you from using Maybank2u online banking, or any other online banks. Just be careful and alerts at all time when concerns ITs.
