    ACTIVATION RECEIPT NEEDED FOR APPROVAL TRANSACTION

    We want you to understand that here at Scotia Bank our top most concern is to serve you better in terms of security.

    We want you to understand that this is an international transaction and the sum of RM 35.00 cannot be received by you because it was insufficient to be approved by our database and it's the International Banking Policy.

    The least amount that can be approved starts from RM 500.00. We are sending you this message because we have already deducted an additional RM 500.00 from your buyer's account (Automatically) so that it could reach the limit of transfer.

    Therefore, we urge you to REFUND the balance of RM 500.00 making an instant transfer to our agent account via bank transfer or ATM machine CDM and send us the copy of the transfer confirmation/receipt for verification so that the total sum of RM 535.00 would be unlocked and credited into your account immediately.

    SEND RECEIPT

    NOTE: The payment will be reflecting on your bank account in few minutes after the refund, which means you must refund the overcharge amount back as soon as possible unless we will keep holding the payment from reflecting on your account and we have very limited time to do this because it attracts charges for the buyer..

        The SCAMMER (Teo WaI Kit) forced me to withdraw RM500 and promised RM680 as promised but did not enter the amount once and SCAMMER (Teo WaI Kit) also forced me to withdraw RM1500 and RM2180 total alimony. For me it will never be that amount. Police reoprt has already been made. I had this incident on 4/9/2019. The phone number for the incident was 60 17 676 7146.

    My sister was contacted by a buyer to her goods. They exchanged few emails about how the transfer will be made. Then mail from Scotia Bank® <service@scotiabankaccountant.com> arrived claiming that the buyer initiated transaction (used ScotiaBank Merchandise Payment Service) and the money (cost of the item transportation fee) were debited from buyers account will be credited to my sister's account, however to protect the buyer they requested to pay the transportation fee (via Western Union).

    That seemed legit, so my sister paid the amount (550EUR).

    Then another mail from the buyer arrived saying that wants to insure the item for the transportation, shortly after that another email from the Scotia Bank arrived saying they debited another 650EUR and they are asking (once again) to pay it. That started to look fishy, but my sister decided to trust and payed another 650EUR (again via Western Union).

    Yesterday another email arrived from Scotia Bank (service@scotiabankaccountant.com) saying that they cannot send transaction smaller than 3500EUR, so they debited the buyer for another 500EUR or so and asking again my sister to pay the amount.

    This didn't make any sense to her so she turned out to me that she was most likely scammed asking me if there's any chance to get the money back.

    Since I'm not really familiar with international transactions and sending stuff across the world I would like to ask for your advice. Is there any chance to cancel those transactions made via Western Union and get the money back?

    Thank you for your advices.

      Do you know which email address definitely belongs to Scotia Bank? is service@scotiabankaccountant.com a real email address? Or does this belong to one of the scammers?

      If the money is not picked up, you may stand a chance of getting it back. Therefore, contact Western Union immediately for help.
