Correct me if I am wrong.... but the machine that captures the card infos
will store the credit card number, card holder name and expiry date. It
doesnt matter if they swipe it once.

Some of us when we use our cards at the petrol stations, we leave the
receipt there at the pump. The receipt contains all infos needed to execute
an online transactions.

Definitely Malaysian with all the wrong spellings which may lead to
misunderstandings. And broken English.

Look at "we hope to leave here peacefully forever."

(S)he hopes "to live here peacefully forever" or "to leave (as in emigrate)
here peacefully forever" ( and never come back).

: Hi,
: we are flying to KL in December. My Malaysian wife who routinely reads
: the news in chinapress.com.my keeps telling me that the security

: When I'm in KL I'm used to go to the Citibank branch in Jalan Ampang
: even late at night and get larger amounts of cash from the ATM. Now my
: wife insists that I stop doing that, because she read stories that
: people will wait near the ATM, then follow people who took larger
: amounts of cash to steal it from them. She also told me that if you

: with your car at the red traffic light, it can happen that somebody

: open the car door, threaten you with a knife and steal your money. And
: so on.
: All this makes me wonder if the security situation in KL has really
: deteriorated so much...?
