Hi. First and foremost, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Trinity and I'm hitting 40 end of this year. I run a small retail business of selling imported chocolates (pls see photos of my business attached), from 2020 up to 2022.

On Dec 21st, 2022 - both my personal and business accounts were frozen by Maybank (pls see attached photos). I had many times contacted Mr. Tan from MBB during Dec'22 but he had refused to assists me further. At the same time, I had also written to Bank Negara Malaysia but was told freezing of accounts were not under their jurisdiction, hence I am supposed to be in touch with the FSP (which is Maybank). I also contacted the Ombudsman for Financial Services to seek assistance to mediate this issue but was told that this was also not under their jurisdiction and that MBB has their own sets of terms and conditions.

At that time, I had engaged a lawyer to help resolve this issue but the lawyer requested for a retainer fee of RM13,000 which at that time I did not have and therefore, we did not proceed further.

Fast forward to Jan'22, a friend suggested that I viral this matter on MBB Facebook page in which I did (pls refer photo attached) and a certain, Puan Mastina responded to me and informed me that my accounts were frozen under s44 of AMLA (Anti Money Laundering Act...). I had sent many appeals to the bank but all were rejected. Pls see my correspondences with the bank.

It has been more than 3 months since my accounts have been frozen and I have no access to any cash. I have been unable to run my business due to cash flow and stocks. I have been applying for jobs but have not succeeded in gaining any employment due to my age (most employers prefer younger candidates). At the same time, I am also unable to travel far for work due to money issues (have no money for petrol and parking) and can only seek appointment nearby.

Plus, I am a diabetic patient and a post spine ops patient (had my surgery in 2014) but the pain is still recurring every now and then and I'm on lifetime medication. For my diabetes, I am relying on insulin (Ryzodeg 70+46) and Jardiance Duo (2 tabs daily). I have been unable to purchase my medicine from the hospital due to financial reasons. Therefore, I have not been taking my meds. Both my legs are numb and my toe nails have black spots, which I am very afraid that it may lead to amputation if not treated (pls see photos).

Recently in March'23, I managed to seek help from a friend's father, who is a veteran lawyer based in Melaka and he had agreed to help my case but would need a small deposit of RM5000 (or something close) to get things rolling and the rest of the legal fees can be paid once the matter is resolved. He did explain to me a few scenarios of the case (but based on my side of the story and his assumption) as we have no clue what is happening or what is causing the accounts to be frozen. We really need to get to the bottom of this matter and try and retrieve the accounts and money.

I have not been able to pay my bills and rents as well and I am close to being evicted. I have no family left (am basically alone) and I am too embarrassed to seek help from my friends as I know that they are struggling as well. I am just grateful to them for listening to my problems and advising me not to give up.

To be honest, I have thoughts of suicide many times over the past month, and especially when I think of this problem. I have even indicated this to the MBB officer but my pleas were still rejected. It's like they do not show any sympathy towards my situation. I had once contacted Befrienders while sitting on the rooftop of my condo and the lady, Ms. Karen talked me out of jumping. As of now, I feel helpless and very depressed. My life is basically stuck and falling apart.

This is my final plea and I really hope that someone kind can please help me out.

Here is a summary of my expenses :

Deposit for LEGAL FEES : RM5,000 (You may reach out to me for further details of the case details. Payment can be made direct to the legal firm, pls request the information from me. Thanks.)

MEDICAL EXPENDITURE : RM1000/month (I have managed to source for Ryzodeg from a pharmacy and it costs RM400/box which will last 2 weeks as for Jardiance Duo, outside pharmacy is selling RM150/box/month. I don't mind receiving the medication instead of cash. I can meet the donor up somewhere around KL to collect.

HOUSE RENTS : RM3000 (I am actually owing 2 months rent). If the kind donor would like to transfer directly to the house owner, I am also fine with it). Details will be provided once the person contacts me for security purposes.

FOOD, BILLS & PERSONAL : RM2000, this amount will be for personal use; like food, bills and petrol or any emergencies.

In the event my account issue is resolved and I have access money from this fundraiser, I promise to donate them to the charity which I have been working with, RUMAH KITA. They are a transit home for single pregnant women, who are victims of sexual abuse and have been displaced by their families. I can pass you the PIC's contacts to verify this information as well.

I hope that kind donors can please help me through these difficult times. TQ.

UPDATE : I am unable to upload photos as it keeps saying INVALID FILE. I will try to update them in the UPDATES page.
