Beware of SMSes offering loans

Loan Scam
I received an SMS: "ENJOY 4.38% P.A. FOR 6 MONTHS WITH OUR LATEST FIXED DEPOSITS PROMOTION. LIMITED TIME OFFER UNTIL 15TH JULY 2024 ONLY. CONTACT 85572306 TO ENQUIRE" from +6591610738. After calling, I received a WhatsApp message from +6585593668: "FIXED DEPOSITS: APPLICATION FOR NEW DEPOSIT FORM."

I double-checked with CIMB and found they do not have a 4.38% promotion. I have blacklisted the phone number accordingly.

I want to share this to alert you about a potential scam.
