In The Name OF Allah
Al-Salam Alekum

Hello guys, Don't accept stranger calls or at least use an app like Truecaller or any other app to identify phone numbers before accepting the call.

Quote:Law enforcement agencies arrested 26 fraudsters who have committed a Sim swapping fraud and stole over €3 million in a series of SIM swapping attacks.

The criminals managed the obtain the online banking credentials from the victims of the different banks by means of hacking techniques such as the use of banking Trojans or other types of malware. Basically, they try to login to their bank account, but the password crashes. Thus, they have graced the newest victim of SIM swap scam, and their phone number is now in the control of a criminal.

The SIM swap fraud is performed when a fraudster tricks the victim’s mobile phone operator while porting the victim’s mobile number to a SIM in the ownership of the fraudster and then starts getting all incoming calls and text messages, including banking OTP (one-time-passwords) that are assigned to the victim’s phone number.

Wa Salam Alekum
