I received a text message saying there was a transaction of max amount drawn on my card yesterday. I called later to check and was told there was a withdrawal done in boon lay area. I informed the staff I did not go to Boon Lay and my card was with me all the while. I was shocked and was directed to lodge a police report right away, in which I did. I was told the dbs bank investigator will be getting in touch with me.
A police report was lodged about an hours time and sequence of events was narrated to the police.
Today, I went over to POSB bank to hand over my police report at about 11.00 am and to reactivate a new card. Almost the same time, 2K was credited back to my account and I received a call saying the amount has been placed back to my account by the bank. I thank the bank for that.
I ponder how on earth did those people got my card and information. The only odd incidence that I came across during the past few days was when I was at NTUC whampoa, withdrawing some cash during noon time and the atmosphere was not normal. The ATM teller was empty and there was a group of guys of varying age between 20 plus to 40 plus, seems to be on the look-out. My first impression was there might be a gang fight and most of em was looking anxiously, on high alert towards the driveway of the road. Well I did my normal withdrawal and left thereafter. From the dressisng of those guys, they looked more like malaysians than local singaporean. I could tell this difference. There were between 6 to 8 people and that caught my attention and was about 30 metres away from where the ATm teller was.
I tried calling the bank's line to report on fraudulent withdrawal the second time, i could not get thru yesterday. I presumed there will be lots of other customers calling in to check and report as well.
The bank would have the record of those callers called complainant and where the fraudsters commit those offence. If whampoa is where the fraud occured, then those people do not work alone but in big groups. Quite sure they are malaysians, from their dressing.
So far, nobody call me for interview or statement.
The next time I will bring my pentax camera around and when I see suspicious character, snap some shots for future reference.
The information above is for those whosoever is concerned, if it is helpful.
I hope we could do our part a little so as to prevent and stop those pest from commiting crime..
Spoilt my night sleep, thinking why, how ???????how come.. stressed
