SINGAPORE: Some 30 credit card users from some major banks have reported being victims of fraudulent charges.
The victims were charged by Taiwan-based Neweb Technologies for transactions that never took place.
One victim was alerted to the scam when he came across a Facebook post.
He said his mother had experienced a similar incident in the past.
When he checked his bank account, he found three pending transactions from the company, with each transaction amounting to S$48.20.
Mr Chester Chua said he called the bank and was told to cancel his card and file a report with the bank.
"The bank said if the fraud was found to be real, then they will refund me the money," he added. - CNA/de
