Credit card users from four major banks have complained they have been hit with fraudulent charges.

Customers of DBS, Citibank, UOB and OCBC were asked to pay money to Taiwan-based Neweb Technologies.

Some shared their experiences on online forum Hardware Zone, saying they were first alerted to the charges by text messages and had cancelled their credit cards. One told The Straits Times that he was asked to pay the equivalent of around $48 in Taiwanese currency.

All four banks said customers would not be liable to pay the unauthorised charges.
