    I am applying for personal loans with bank rakyat but the staff who process my loan said that I’ve got no record in ccris (fresh without having any history with the bank). I’ve been using 2 credit cards for more than 6 month already. I’m using the cards only to have a financial records with bank. The only records in ccris as for now is approval for my credit cards application. Please advise what I need to do. thank you

      YEs, if your record “too clean”,mean no loan, Bank also no confidence if you can repay the loan or not. Since you have using the credit card for 6 months,then you may go back and apply again. The most important is you pay your credit card on time.

    Is it necessary to do a credit report? I recently got scammed and i was afraid that they might use my personal information to create an account or asking for any loans using my personal details. Are they able to do that? Please do advice.

        So if they only have my ic number, they are unable to open an account or ask for loan in my name, right? Because more personal info is required right To prove that you are a legit?

      Hi, you may write to Hong Leong and telling them your situation. Normally Bank will give you a discharge letter.is CCRIS also showing same thing?

  9. Mawar

    What does it mean with “B.P.H” in the outstanding credit facilities and what does “Not Applicable – please purchase at MYCTOS Score Report” means?

    CTOS will update everything in the report before they send it to us right?

    Thanks

  10. Afiq

    I have check my CCRIS status via txt msg. But the only reply I get is to fill the form manually and post. Is there any direct way to get the status via email/sms?

  11. ariff

    it is just a matter of interest cos at the look of things and at the ways how much the bank trust ctos more than the jabatan insolvency coz like the problem I ENCOUNTER THE INSOVENCY REMARKS WAS I AM NO A BANKRUPTCY BUT IN THE CTOS REPORT IAM ONE so whatever loans i applied will be rejected so bto say that the insolvency report is a bluffed or the ctos are not updating their system for their benefit or what nobody knows is our government that untrusted and unworthy to the extend that they need a private company to overrule them rather than vice versa please look at this problem seriosly an get the licence of companies like ctos to be checked of their authenticity.juz a matter of knowlewdge
