My friend recently got her wallet stolen and found her credit card being swiped for RM12,000. The thieves bought laptops and clothes.
My friend said this:
The thieves (the guy in black & white stripes shirt and lady in purple top) stole my wallet when I accidentally left it at TGIF, Curve (i know, my mistake). They swiped a total of RM12k last nite within a short span of an hour!
These fradulent purchases included Petronas Mutiara Damansara, RM3k for Sony Vaio, RM6.7k for HP laptop and RM2.1k A/X Armani clothes.
She has also posted a video obtained from the store that sold the laptop to the perpetrators.
If you know the man and the lady in the video, drop me a note. Please don’t post their names here. What I was told is that these people have a Vietnamese or Thai accent.
On another note, from what I have read, there seems to be a RM250 cap on liability of card holders for fraudulent transactions using their credit card. This is provided by the Bank Negara Credit Card Guidelines. I have not seen the guidelines myself and I dont find it at Bank Negara’s website.
However, there is a report to say that the liability for stolen credit card capped at RM200. Does anyone have a copy of the Bank Negara Guidelines?
