Important Account Protection From Maybank Group (Phishing Email)

The content of this silly email is shown below. After reading this silly email, I am going to show you why I call it silly email.

From: Maybank Group <customers@verifications.com>

Also we need to confirm your online banking protection to keep the validity of your TAC Receivers Phone, We introduce this to ensure the protection of your account and transactions,

https://www.maybank2u.com.my/mbb/m2u/common/M2ULogin.do? action=Login

Thank you."

Now, let's see why this is a phishing email.

1. you may probably know that the link given in this email will never link to Maybank2U official website but a "fake similar webpage", that is, http://www.servingbetter2u.com/MM2U.html?https://www.maybank2u.com.my/mbb/m2u/common/M2ULogin.do?action=Login.

2. The sender email address is definitely not Maybank2u official email address.

3. This email does not display recipient email address, therefore, this is a spam email.

As a result, if your username and password is so easy to be stolen if you are so nervous and eager to verify your account when you received this kind of phishing email.

Please call to Maybank if you have, unfortunately, enter your bank details in this phishing webpage to block your account immediately.

Good luck.
