Dear Customer,

It is suggested that you find (locate) the Deustch bank in Malysia independently to find out their telephone number. Then, call them to ask what this COT is. Also, contact the financial institution you are sending money out from to ask them what this code is.

This COT is not any normal wiring number required of an international fund transfer. This type of code has been link to fraudulent scam and scheme often. The scam comes in various shapes and designs. Usually, the other party is getting a small amount from you upfront in exchange of a larger amount never coming true. Or it could be someone met the victim on line and claiming there is a certain urgent need for you to send money.

Don't do it.
