I had received a private number today,claimed to call from tmnet.
He is a malay guy. Very polite, very formal and the sound look so real. So i just listen it patiently.
Someone: Hello, i'm from Tmnet and thx you for subscribing our services with tmnet!
Kenzo: So anything looking for me? (i'm thinking is it any outstanding bill?)
Someone: We are from Tmnet and we would like to offering a Tmnet insurance to you.
Kenzo: Insurance? (but the guy speaking very fast and i never give any chances for me to ask)
someone: Are single or married?
someone: good, now we offering 2 pakages that is package RM25 and Rm35 so which one you preferred?
Someone: So do u using any credit card/debit card?
Kenzo: Yes! i do...
Someone: Ok! what is you card?
Kenzo: it's a Maybank card.
Someone: Here it is, we are now giving you free 6 months of protection against accident and etc which you can claim up to RM300,000.

1. Is this real? i don't think so
2. What can we do to protect ourselves? How? Should be report to police?
3. Why do the person from insurance company knows all my Streamyx registration details? Is it being leaked out by tmnet?
4. What will happen cause i had given out my 16 digits. The 3 numbers ccv2 can be cracked?
5. i'm NEARLY SCAM! ( a good experienced)
