#cyberfraud | #cybercriminals | The first thing to do after you’re involved in a hack

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans There were a bunch of big data hacks in 2019, and 2020 will likely be just as bad as the number of cyberattacks increase. (The average number of security breaches in the last year grew by 11% from 130 in 2017 to 145 in 2018, according to Accenture research.) Companies […] View full post on AmIHackerProof.com

MP police #cyber cell busts #Indo-Pak gang involved in #credit card fraud

Busting an international gang of credit card hackers, the cyber wing of Madhya Pradesh Police has arrested two persons on Monday who are accused of making large-scale online purchases by hacking information on credit cards. The two accused, both residents of Mumbai, are suspected to be associated with a gang of international cyber criminals, run by Pakistani citizen Shaikh Afzal aka Shozi.

Speaking after the arrest of credit card hackers, Superintendent of Police (SP) of State Cyber Cell of Indore unit, Jitendra Singh said that two Indian members of this gang, identified as Ramkumar Pillai and Ramprasad Nadar, were arrested following a complaint made by a bank official from Agar Malwa district.

“We have learnt that Shozi is a native of Lahore and got married only last year. Shozi visits different countries across the world. He was in Uzbekistan when Nadar and Pillai talked to him last time through Skype. We are trying to confirm these details,” the Superintendent of Police said.

The duo purchased hacked credit card details from some websites on the dark web and later paid for the information through Bitcoin. “If this payment is measured in terms of Indian currency, it costs only Rs 500 to Rs 800 to buy details of every credit card,” Singh added.

The gang members bought air tickets and travel packages of Bangkok, Thailand, Dubai, Hong Kong and Malaysia by using this information of hacked credit cards. They also shopped costly items online using the hacked details, said the official.

Singh said the accused also used to send half the amount, they spent by misusing the credit card details, to Shozi by secret online methods.

The accused also used to select the online e-commerce website, where they do not need a one-time password (OTP) to make a purchase. So, the holders would get the information about the misuse of credit cards only after the payment.

Singh said initial investigation revealed that both the accused have made purchases of about Rs 20 lakh by misusing the details of 17 credit cards so far. However, this figure may go up after further investigation.

He said that the police have been searching for a resident of Jabalpur, who is also learnt to be connected with this gang.

Bank tellers involved in identity theft, according to BBB

We trust them with personal financial information. They see and have access to our bank account numbers and debit card numbers. No wonder, then, it is unsettling to learn that bank tellers have been increasingly involved in reported cases of identity theft. According to reports, bank tellers have been caught selling Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to individuals who then take that information and turn it into fake credit cards or checks. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), more than 8,600 complaints against banks and lenders were reported by Texas consumers last year alone. In fact, Bank Fraud was ranked as one of the top five types of identity theft. That’s why the Better Business Bureau advises people to monitor their bank statements regularly, especially on accounts like they may not check as often. What tips does BBB offer to avoid fraud and ID theft? Guard your account number. Never give your account number to anyone unless it is a representative of your bank or credit union. Even then, take steps to insure that’s who you’re talking to. Keep your transactions secure. Safeguard your bank account information, credit card numbers, Social Security number and other personal data when you use […]

Global fraud involved computer hacking, insider trading, officials say

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

As told by federal authorities, it was the ultimate cyber-era criminal mash-up: an elaborate computer hacking operation to enable a global and lucrative insider trading scheme. In one of the most sweeping cases yet involving securities fraud and computer crime, prosecutors and the Securities Exchange Commission unveiled what they said was a long-running scheme to profit from yet-to-be-released corporate earnings, deals and other market-moving data. The scheme, spanning from Ukraine to the U.S., involved the alleged hacking of business news wire services to pull inside information from pending but still private press releases and other documents so that rogue traders could get a jump on buying or selling shares before breaking news moved the stock prices. The indictments, filed in U.S. District courts here and in Brooklyn, N.Y., accused a foreign-based hacking network of downloading more than 150,000 press releases for traders in the U.S. and elsewhere. The traders paid the hackers a flat rate or a percentage of the profits, the indictments alleged. A companion civil case filed by the SEC included a wider network of defendants including hackers, traders and small securities firms in places such as Moscow, Paris, Cyprus and Malta. In all, the scheme netted more […]
