Left ocbc as their refused to waive off annual fee for cards. Shifted everything to uob. Now may shift to dbs if not for the fact i need uob atm, no q.
Why they dont want to waive?
i have no issue waiving from dbs.
why this ocbc so special?

Agreed.
money better put in FD.
so scammer cant withdraw online.
keep a few thousand saving account will do.
the rest, all in FD.
save and dry.

OneToken is very secure.

Problem is the user is not secure. Lol.

Background: due to recent issues, i tried to check how to permanently disabled PayNow/PayLah and also permanently disabled the activation of OneToken.

Result - no way.

Then, to safeguard my risk, i deleted all unnecessarily payee. Result - OK.
Then, to limit my damage, i lower most of transaction limits and also try to disable Oversea TT and MEPS which i don't really need.

However, at this moment, OCBC not sending sms OTP, but asking me to key in the hardward OTP, which battery flat for few years...

Then i tried to search for option for a replacement, all link divert me to activate OneToken with all the benefits listed.
Eventually, i found the Hardware token replacement, but following message followed...

A S$20 fee is charged if a lost or damaged token must be replaced. Please send us a secured email via Digital Banking and include the following details:

  • Why the token needs replacing (e.g. run out of battery, damaged or lost)
  • Where we should mail the token to (if you have more than one mailing address in our records)

Thank you OCBC for protecting the scammers. If we want more secure services, we will need to pay $20 for the hardware token, which could be overwrite by the OneToken by scammers... WHY??????

Since when bank is not evil?

@OCBC Bank this person using this account keep very quiet during the whole scam saga. Really take salary, shake leg and do nothing. Trivial matter like atm machine ocbc then reaction very fast.
To be fair this account is prob some xdd /xmm customer service manning it. Don’t think he also can reply on how the scam happen and the details. Scold him / her also no use.

aiya just put all your money into a bank account with low tech features, like cimb. then that low tech bank account only got payee to your other "risky" bank accounts. every tiime need money must transfer over from the low tech bank account lor
The banks can put up all the safe guards, then becomes very 麻烦 to do transactions , then customers will kpkb again....back to square 1 :s13:

Perhaps voting with your feet and shifting your funds to another bank that supports the security features that you need would be the best option.
