Hacker #stole £10k from #jazz #charity

Source: National Cyber Security News

A jazz centre, headed up by Westcliff musician Digby Fairweather, was targeted by an online fraudster, it has been revealed.

Hackers accessed an account belonging to the Southend-based Jazz Centre UK and stole £10,000.

Fortunately, the charity had its money refunded by the bank, but Mr Fairweather said people must be vigilant to rising cyber crime.

He said: “The Jazz Centre UK online account had two payees set up at the time for small sums. Someone hacked into the account and moved £4,950 twice in a day into these accounts. He then rang both firms saying he was from the jazz centre and the sums had been transferred by mistake and that we owed the money to someone else.

“He asked them to pay it back and then gave them his own account number.”

Mr Fairweather added: “It was virtually all the Jazz centre UK funds but after an inquiry it was the fault of the bank and all the money was refunded – apart from £216.

“It made us very wary of online banking. It could have left us in a great deal of trouble.”

The incident, which happened in October, came to light after it was raised in Parliament by Southend West MP Sir David Amess.

Hackers Stole 200,000 South Korean Credit Cards Data

Hackers stole the personal information of about 200,000 South Korean credit card users, making some fake credit cards and rack up fraudulent charges about $115,400.

The Financial Supervisory Service said that several suspects had late last year hacked into firm card managing payment processing terminals and extracted datas such as numbers, expiry dates and passwords for a point-amassing loyalty card.

The suspects exploit that some of the users had been using the same PIN numbers and or passwords for the both credit cards and loyalty card to create fake card to charge items earlier this year.

South Korean Police , the one which are investigating have so far identified 268 different cases of wrongful chatges. The leaked information , including cards issues by the biggest cards firm, Shinhan Card which didn’t included pin numbers or passwords .

The hacking of the credit cards almost destroys credit cards owner’s life as the hackers card things from the money of other persons but carders are the most wanted people in the list of agencies as every step is dangerous for carders.

Some even card things for others like other people buy hacked credit cards like 200,000 credit cards were hacked so same like this people buy hacked credit cards and provide to carder so they can card anything that they wish to have but this thing is wrong that you buy things for your ownself on others money.

A teenage mum and her boyfriend who are also partners-in-crime stole two valuable Bichon Frise puppies in a house burglary.

A neighbour later reported having seen Grundza knocking on the door “looking suspicious”, while a silver Vauxhall car was parked outside.

Two playstations and two of the family’s eight puppies were gone, leaving three children “distressed”, prosecutor Richard Ace told Cardiff Crown Court.

One of the Playstations was sold to a cash generator shop in Albany Road, Cardiff before it and the dogs were recovered by police.
