Fraudulent transactions have always been a threat that bank users keep an eye out for.
This is especially so in light of recent reports about the huge losses suffered by phishing scam victims.
Ex-Mediacorp artiste Sora Ma shared her first of such encounters via an Instagram story.
Transaction of over S$1,300
Ma had received a text message, notifying her about a card transaction of USD978.11 that was completed with her DBS/POSB card on Jan. 13 at 12:37am.
The transaction was made on U.S. department store Target's website.
According to her Instagram story, it was the first time she was faced with such a situation.
She responded by calling the bank immediately to cancel the transaction and updating her private information in hopes of preventing such incidents from recurring.
In response to 8 Days' enquiries, the 37-year-old said that the bank cancelled the card while they investigated the incident.
Ma confirmed that she while she has made recent purchases on e-commerce websites such as Shopee and Lazada, she has never ordered anything from Target.
