Contact HLB Contact Centre or National Scam Response Centre (NSRC) as soon as you realised that there has been unauthorised/unknown transaction(s) made from your account or you realised that you have been scammed. This quick action may help you reduce your potential losses, although there is no guarantee that you will get your money back.
Make a police report at a police station near you, after you have reported your case to HLB Contact Centre or NSRC to enable the police to start their investigation.
Still contact the Bank even though the scam/fraud happened a while ago (e.g. more than 24 hours) as by reporting to the bank, you are assisting the authorities in taking action against the perpetrators.
Please note that you don’t need to make separate reports to NSRC and HLB. One report is sufficient as NSRC and the Bank will share information and take action accordingly.
NSRC is an emergency response centre for online financial scam and fraud. It is an integrated operation involving the collaboration between the National Anti-Financial Crime Center (NFCC), Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM), Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM), Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM) as well as financial institutions and the telecommunications industry.
