PS. You can send them a note on their generic feedback form though if you look hard enough.

I don't understand your complaint. Isn't it better to TALK to one of them on the phone then just send an email and wait a few hours? Some people might have already gotten tricked or fooled like someone here. I personally prefer their method of being active then to send to some email which is just waiting to be opened when they want to.

I received this email too. Of course it's fraud lah.. dbs wouldn't ask for pin thru email one... so wanted to report to them... spent the morning looking for an email to forward to, but lo and behold, there's none available.. only a 1800-1111111 "machine" custormer service line.. (which by the way, make me go thru a few minutes of pressing of numbers, but still can't talk to a real person..sigh...) and a useless feedback form page online.. which can't be used... what on earth are they doing??? really crappy stuffs...
Guess the best thing to do is to go to the bank and talk to the staff physically...
guess it's tough being a "good" citizen.... sighz..

The complaint here is that it's their customer. Yes you get faster information when using the phone but you end up with a lot smaller nnumber of people willing to call in to make the report. I get phishing mail for Ebay, Wells Fargo, Citibank and more. Will I call them each individually to let them know? When I can find an email to send it to I will, otherwise....
