Didn’t know ryde app and PayPal do not require any 6 digit otp when adding a new card. And….ahmadnawai? Please at least choose something in chinese to transact 😓 to make it more convincing right ? ***
Everybody please beware of this driver!!!
This morning my Friend (who is a Chinese National) took a uber ride of 7 dollars. As he only has got 50 dollars with him, the driver said he can’t accept it as he has got no small change to return. So he told my friend to give him the 50 dollars and he will transfer the remaining change to him.
He then took his account number and took pictures of my friend’s atm card (front and back). And my Friend being a foreigner wasn’t sure if he really needs the card details but still allowed the driver to do so as he trusted the driver when he said he needed his card details for transfer.
After that a whole day when he checked his bank account, he realised that 260 dollars was missing and called Dbs to block the card before tracking back the transactions and realise there were 3 transactions not made by him today amounting to $260. One car ride and two online shopping transactions. A police report will be made. Believed this might not be the first time for the driver as according to my Friend, he seems very smooth when asking for details and telling him he has got no small change.
Please beware of this driver if he happened to take your ride. Do not ever give any details to him.
