5. Please allow 48 hours for processing.

Please comply and thanks for understanding.

Guys - please pass this alert around. Giving your TAC and your accounts details to a third party is as good as giving your PIN number AND your ATM card to a stranger...

Read No. 2 and No. 4 slowly and you'd see the smooth details.... I almost bought it - but did not because I don't have No CIMB Account. Also tried connecting to their "server" but seems they goofed up on their https-[link] address.
I can only imagine some poor soul that is new to the Net...

No. 5 - Real classic - "pls allow 48hrs for processing" - like what the >>> 48hrs to raid the account??? :eek:

Whenever you get one of these mails, just copy and paste anyone familiar line to Google, and you may be amazed you may be pointed to some website that reports the matter as some scam mail!. Simple lah! but don't click on any of the links.

Hey you folks!.. How about you all be SMARTER and ask prices on your restaurant dish on ordering than more attention to how to counter scam mails. Prevent yourself from "KENA KATOK" in your own backyard FIRST than kena katok from some intenational site?..
