I’m sure some of you have received Spam from unknown phone numbers. Over the weekend, the Royal Malaysian Police Cyber Crime Alert announced that there was a fake Touch ‘n Go (TnG) website phishing scam pass.
According to the report, the fake TnG phishing scam would appear in your SMS notifications as usual. In the SMS, the scammer will inform you that your money has been credited to your TnG eWallet account and provide a fake website. The fake website would ask for your phone number and TnG eWallet number PIN so they can break in and steal your money.
As a rule, official companies will never ask you for your number and PIN. That said, they are also not allowed to text through their personal number or email. So never click on one or more links received from an unknown number, always access your eWallet account from a valid application and check the received SMS with the concerned party.
Besides TnG, some scammers claim to belong to TikTok, Lazada, Shopee and others. Very often they offer quick incentives to work from home and earn money daily, which is obviously too good to be true. Stay alert, stay safe, and stay tuned for more tech news at TechNave.com.
