KOTA BARU: A bank employee filed a RM3 million suit at the High Court yesterday against Singer (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd for allegedly falsifying his personal details in its business transactions.

Mohd Nasir Wan Abdul Rahman, 37, claimed that the company had wrongly and negligently falsified his personal information for its business dealings.

As a result, he claimed that he had failed to obtain a loan from Bank Rakyat here because his name had been blacklisted by Credit Tip-Off Service Sdn Bhd (CTOS) and the Central Credit Reference Information System (CCRIS).

He claimed that Singer had caused him to be blacklisted by allegedly submitting his name into the CTOS and CCRIS systems.

The statement of claim said he had never given direct or indirect permission to the defendant, or any other individual who was applying for a loan, to use his name as a borrower and/or guarantor.

Accompanied by his lawyers Mohd Zubairi Salleh and Mohd Rafizi Abdullah, Nasir arrived at the court house about 3pm and took 10 minutes to file the summons.

Later, he said he discovered that his name had been misused as a guarantor when his loan application was rejected on June 16 last year.

"I managed to get more information from the bank and when I checked with Singer, I discovered that my name had been used for two of its clients without my permission," he said.

He said he sent a notice to Singer through his lawyer in July last year but the company failed to pay the amount claimed by him.
