Banking thieves

Just when you thought online transaction is safe
Aizat Sharif
Thursday, September 15th, 2011 12:09:00

KUALA LUMPUR: One was a civil engineer and the other an IT graduate.

But the two foreign students, with help from their accomplices, used their skills to con Malaysians of their money.

The duo — a Jordanian and a Sierra Leonne national — joined forces with a Pakistani and four locals in conducting a new financial fraud scam using the 'data phishing' techniques and 'hijacking' SIM cards of mobile phones.

How the scam works

1. The syndicate used a special software to download information from the Internet banking kiosk after the victim carried out a transaction. This is to obtain the latter's personal banking information, including handphone numbers.

2. Syndicate members then impersonated as telecommunication service providers' personnel and contact the victim, telling them their line would be disrupted for two hours for 'upgrading purposes'.

3. Masquerading as the victim, a local member of the syndicate would then go to a telco's branch with a forged police report and a copy of the victim's identity card to cancel the victim's original SIM card and obtain a replacement.

4. The new SIM card would be used to get the transaction authorisation code (TAC) to perform fund transfers via the Internet.

The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Structured Settlements

The structured settlement is definitely an arrangement where rather than a lump amount of cash being awarded to some claimant, a tax-free regular payment is decided. Structured settlements in many cases are used in guardianship instances, workers compensation instances, wrongful death instances and severe damage cases.

Research has indicated how the more severe the actual injury, the more likely it will likely be that a structured settlement is going to be used.


How To Get Cash For Your Structured Settlement

Structured settlements are financial agreements that are worked out between a claimant and a defendant in tort procedures. The two parties settle on a tax-free financial settlement that is paid out over a period of time that is determined by the claimant.

Established by Congress during the 1970s, structured settlements were designed as a better method of payment as opposed to lump sum payments.
