KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 — Stumped. That was how The Malay Mail reporter Benedict Ng felt after leaving a bank at Jalan Klang Lama last Friday.
As part of an exercise to see if banks were linked to the National Registration Department (NRD) to vet and verify those performing transactions, Ng called up the bank’s customer service and was informed their branches were all not linked with NRD.
In 2011, The Malay Mail had in a land scam expose revealed that a tampered MyKad was used to perform a land transaction. The fraudster had managed to open a bank account in Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
