Impersonation Scam
Another scammer called on 22 sep 2022, a Chinese-Malaysian accent, told me that he has lost his phone and asked me to remember his new phone number.

I thought he was a contractor whom I knew. He called me and asked me how to change his mobile update with the bank and kept saying bank needed OTP and he didn't remember. He said he isn't familiar with online banking or how to set his settings, so I used the website info and guided him. Next he told me that his bank account got locked, and he cannot withdraw his money and asked if i could help him make payment to supplier, I replied no! so he hung up.

Beware peeps, it seems quite common pattern using this scam.
