Credit Card Fraud

I’ve been reading a lot about credit card fraud but I never came across my mind that it would happen to me. I’ve always wanted to ditch the lousy Ambank Mastercard that I have. But due to work i never had the time to do it.

Earlier, so happens that I was free and since I’ve not logged into my Ambank Online account for quite some time, I went in and it gave me a shocker.  My card has been charged RM1198 but no information what it is charged for. I called Ambank customer service and found out that it’s only 1 out of 4 transaction that has already been posted to my account. 3 more is still pending.

Some idiot used my card to make booking for tickets from MAS Airlines (RM1198) & Air Asia(RM399) on 18th Sept 2011. Another charges from Oregon X Ray Council Teutopolis (RM399) which I couldn’t find any information online regarding the company. Aside from that, 1 more transaction for Air Asia (RM874) charged to my account yesterday 20th Sept 2011.

Thank God! that I logged into my account just to check. I promptly raised a dispute on the charges. Hopefully they can do a chargeback on it. Else, I’ll have to bring the issue up to Bank Negara to settle it.

If only I cancelled the stupid card earlier, I would not have this kinda problem happening to me. I have no issue with Maybank nor Public Bank. At least they would call me to verify on the transaction. Sigh!

Seriously, who ever owns a credit card, be sure to check on the transaction daily, if not, every few days just to make sure nobody misused your card.

Streamyx died again

Bloody Screamyxx just died on me again. Their customer support are so darn stupid trying to avoid calls. It seems that 1300 88 9515 has been engage for the last 25 minutes. Calling 100 didn’t work at all. As soon as you pressed 2 for Internet services. The line just silenced.

WhaT the hell is wrong these moron doing anyway… What’s the point of advertising how good Streamyx is when it is still NO GOOD!

I’ve been hanging on the phone for almost half an hour. All I get is  “Sorry! All our agents are still engage blaa blaa blaaa. and Please ensure that your splitter and modem are connected properly” 

SCREW YOU!!! If it’s not connnected properly, I won’t be calling you TMNUTz at all… Sigh
