On a parallel thread got 1x case where $100K was taken, then $ was taken from her credit card via easicredit transfer or cash withdrawal? (ouch).....but these cc transfer normally takes a day or two. But OCBC so nua until a few days later the cc cash went into the account and again transfer out to the scammer bank....

WTF....no blacklist the scammers' bank number?

Can't OCBC stop the remittance given that is such a big amount and clearance of account to overseas? Don't such remittances (big amount or clearance of account) send an alert to the bank's cyber security department? How come the remit is the immediate effect? Can't banks reverse the transfer? Can't a bank have a system like if want transfer big amount, it has to subject bank due diligence first (eg video call customer, video call the transferee)?

Don't tell me the bank has no obligation to look after your money?

what is the most important thing is not to find fault.. is to find the culprits behind the act.. if the culprits are not caught and given life sentence.. they will come up with a more foolproof scam and claim more victims.. I think the laws are very lenient to these scammers.. only a few years of jail after being caught.. that's why more and more joining to be scammers.. because the risk to reward is good...

Yes. Purpose of bank is to provide banking service. OCBC failed to provide that service.

If you go counter ask for life savings, confirm will hold and kanna questions. Why are there no checks for large transfers?

Also I believe the no otp issue, cos dbs already kanna many times Liao.

i think majority is still bank fault. going down the hierarchy of controls, ocbc shd fundamentally implement additional layer of securities or upgrade its security layers before pushing it down to the users. this scam has been going on for years and worsen recently when they all move to e-token / sms log ins

If the police of different countries can cooperate, they can trace to the receiving end. All money transferred should be traceable from source to destination.

i dont think its possible to perform transactions without auth from the owner...

its possible that the phishing site was setup and the first OTP could have been provided by the victim through the phishing site which the scammer then used in the real site to change the phone number that the OTP was sent to?
