“When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and
the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle
and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur"
“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.” “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .” “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."
Maybank Data Breach - Reposting some old screwups of Maybank from 2013
Friday, December 30, 2022
Malaysiakini : Fahmi wants probe on new 'data leak' involving Maybank, Astro and EC
I am re-posting this, from 16th July 2013, in relation to Maybank. I have never applied for an Amex card. I got a
Master card by virtue my salary goes into Maybank2u. There happen to be a
thousand over employees where I work. Maybank2u gives you a Master card
and forces, an Amex card on you. You see, they
shove the Amex card down your throat whether you like it or not. I said
I did not want the Amex card, no they insisted I must have both, one
cannot have only the Master card! Okay when I received the Master card
and the Amex card, as any normal trusting person
I activated the card. I purchase fuel at the petrol kiosk using the
Master card whenever I need to top up my car. I used the Amex card only
once to do the same. After which I paid of the amount on the Amex card. I
actually overpaid by RM2.15. Since I was only
using my Master card, I kept my Amex card at home, “cold storaging” it,
never carrying it or using it.
On the 25th June 2013, I received two SMS’s from Maybank2u, the first SMS at 01.45 am stating that I had purchased a product for USD34.25 AT KARMALOOP INC and the second SMS at 01.46 am stating that I had purchased a product
for EUR 162.62 AT WWW.MENLOOK.COM
using my now, “cold storaged” Amex card. I was so totally
flabbergasted. Here are the SMS’s I got, I crossed out the numbers on my
2.RM0.00 MBB:TQ for using your Maybankard ending XXXX for USD34.25 AT KARMALOOP INC
\\;25/06/13;01:45.For inq call num at back of your card
I came in to work, the same morning of the 25th June 2013. I spoke to a Khalid at 08.25 am,
at Maybank, who told me that they would cancel the card and send me a
new Amex card. He told me to wait for 7 days and call him back
on the following Wednesday which is on the 3rd
July 2013. He explained that is would take a week to clear this
problem. Later when I logged in to check online I saw that my link to
the Amex card was not active. It was a temporary relieve.
On the 27th June 2013, when I logged into
Maybank2u, I was again shocked that the link to the Amex card was
active again showing that I owed them RM708.46 (EUR 162.62) for a
transaction using the Amex card. Smart guys those in Maybank2u, they
were using an Amex card which I had yet to receive,
the new replacement for the fraudulent transaction card! Bloody
efficient aren’t they? I called up Maybank2u again, spoke to a lady
with the name of Asha at 07.46 am on the 27th
I had to repeat all the earlier shit I told Khalid. To
which she asked me whether I had filled up a dispute form. That was
indeed news to me, I told her that Khalid never mentioned it to me. Why
should I fill up a dispute form when it was Maybank that was screwing
me. I asked her why did not Khalid ask me to fill
up the so called ‘Dispute form’. I again asked her if there was any
standard SOP to handle customer disputes instead of giving wish washy
answers. It was typical government department style, the same as when
you call TNB, Telecoms, or that department which
deals with shit, Indah Water. I asked her to ask her to call me back
when they could give me an answer, I demanded that it be done by today.
Khalid calls me back at approximately 11.30 am
( did not record the approximate time), aah yes the “Dispute Form”, he
now tells me I had to fill it up. Not immediately though, but wait until
I am charged for the USD34.25 too, then only
to fill up the form!! After which I was to call them on Wednesday, 3rd
July 2013. According to Khalid the investigations would take 45 days.
Khalid also told me about the new Amex card which I have yet to receive.
Meantime in the place where I
work, which employs over a thousand people. I spoke to around 20 people
in my immediate vicinity, not less than 5 people experienced the same
shit I am undergoing. They cancelled their cards except for their
Maybank2u card which they have no choice as all
of our salaries are banked into this bank of screwups. They all use
other cards, not Maybank’s! There is no way a fraudulent transaction
can take place without an insider giving out information on the cards of
customers, within Maybank itself. Honesty goes
down the toilet in MayBank. I received the new card in the evening of
27th June 2013.
On Wednesday 3rd July 2013, I noticed
that the transaction for USD34.25 was not charged, I was charged for the
EUR162.62 which is RM708.46. The actual amount showed on the Amex card
was RM705.88, when you go to the history of
transactions the amount goes up to RM708.46. This morning I called up
Maybank customer service at 1-800-88-1801 and spoke to a lady with the
name Hani at 0755 hrs. They had sent me a dispute form via slow mail on
the dated 25th June 2013. I received
it on the 29th June 2013. I asked to clarify some parts of the form to e-mail it to
firstname.lastname@example.org She told me to call back in an hour’s time to confirm whether they had received my dispute form.
After which I told her I wanted to cancel the new
Amex card and the MasterCard, she had the temerity to ask why I wanted
to do so. I just told her bluntly that I do not trust MayBank. I
further e-mailed them twice to cancel my MasterCard
and Amex card. Until today which is the 5th July 2013, it
has not been done. My whole analysis of this is, it is an inside job.
Why do I say this? How an earth would the perpetrators of this fraud
know all the details on my card, which had been
“cold storaged”. Why is Maybank so bloody reluctant to cancel my cards?
Dream on, I am not going to pay for this even if hell freezes over.
Take note all of you out there, who have Maybank cards. More here.......
