KUANTAN: All a 26-year-old insurance agent wanted was to apply for a job posted on Facebook but instead he received a strange request to provide his bank account details.

Unperturbed by the demand, the man obliged and the move proved costly as he ended up losing RM22,000 of his savings.

In the incident on Sept 17, the victim noticed a job vacancy post on Facebook and sent a message to a number written on the advertisement to gather details about the job.

Pahang Commercial Crime Investigation Department chief Superintendent Mohd Wazir Mohd Yusof said after some time, the victim received a text message requesting a copy of his MyKad and bank account details.
