You're probably familiar with the joys of online shopping, but sometimes it comes with risks, as one Malaysian recently experienced. 



This individual shared screenshots on Twitter showcasing a loss of RM 837.86, accompanied by a frustrated query: "Who the heck hacked my card?" The screenshots revealed four transactions, each totaling RM 8447.38, allegedly made within three minutes to a company named Rent A Cop Car Corp. 



However, the individual's Maybank card was declined due to exceeding the credit limit, prompting a demand to settle the outstanding balance. Despite the apparent failure of the four-figure transactions, another deduction of RM 837.86 was successfully made for purchase from FRG*NFLSHOP.com in Jacksonville, US.

"Damn, they managed to bypass the official NFL account. It's insane how unsafe it is to buy items from the USA." Many netizens empathized, sharing similar experiences where their cards were blocked due to fraudulent transactions. 


Another netizen suggested that since it was a credit card, the bank would likely intervene to resolve the issue caused by a security breach, reassuring, "If it's not our own doing, there should be a solution. The bank also wants their money back."
