Phishing Modus Operandi in Petaling Jaya Busted

4 foreigners and 3 locals were detained by the Malaysian authorities involving an investigation of money-transferring internet fraud that has already done a damage of almost RM250,000 recently.

Datuk Syed Ismail Syed Azizan, Director of the Commercial Crime Investigation Department in Bukit Aman said that the detainees whom were aged between 20 to 27 years old were arrested at a house in Millenium Square, Petaling Jaya on the 10th and 12th September 2011.

Suspects were of an African man from Sierra Leone, Jordan, Pakistan, one local man and 3 local women. Urgh. Pembelot bangsa. One of them, the syndicate planner, was a graduate from a private college who is skilled in the internet network while others are working alone and one is a student. My god. STUDENT!

Phishing Modus Operandi in Petaling Jaya Busted History

Syed Ismail reported;

Kita telah membuka kertas siasatan sejak awal tahun ini selepas 12 kes dilaporkan membabitkan kerugian berjumlah RM242,321.14. Pada tarikh tersebut (10 dan 12 Sept), risikan kita berjaya mengesan kesemua suspek di beberapa lokasi di kawasan perumahan tersebut sebelum menahan mereka.

Translation: "We've opened the investigation papers since earlier this year after 12 cases were reported involving a loss of RM242, 321.14. On that date (10th and 12th September), our intelligence succeeded in tracking the suspects in several locations in the housing area before arresting them."

Phishing Modus Operandi in Petaling Jaya Busted- How They Work

Ismail said that the modus operandi of the syndicate is using the phishing and hijacking the owner's phone's sim card technique and targeting kiosks in several banks around Klang Valley.

The syndicate will victim's internet banking information such as username, password ID and phone number using the phishing technique after the victim did his business at the bank's kiosk by downloading them from the kiosk to a thumb drive or their laptop using a software.

After getting the information, the syndicate will then disguise as a telco company's staff and inform the victim that his line will be disrupted for a few hours due to an upgrading work.

The local criminal within the syndicate will then visit any of the telco company's branch to get a replacement for the victim's sim card by bringing a fake police report (made by themselves) and a copy of the victim's identification card to deceive the telecommunication company's staff to cancel the victim's current sim card and give a new sim card to the criminal. And yes, these are to be done without the victim's acknowledgement of course.

The syndicate will then use the new sim card to get the Transaction Authorisation Code (TAC) to make a money transfer online from the victim's account to a third party account or by Western Union. This is also without the victim's knowledge.

The victim will only realize something was up when their communication line hasn't been active for more than 2 hours and they've checked with their telco company.

Easy money eyh? So scary man. Imagine using a software and people can easily know what you've done at the ATM machine and get to know the details, together with your password.

And what's with these African men doing bad things here in Malaysia?? Not enough with them trying to cheat people by doing fake pet-selling, using our people to go overseas to send drugs and now, right under our noses they're doing the newest crime ever- phishing! Oh Lord what's next?

Shame on you criminal Malaysians! I hope you rot in jail.

Phishing Modus Operandi in Petaling Jaya Busted- Lessons Learnt

Well, I think the best thing is to not just put numeric passwords for your internet banking, but the alphanumeric passwords where it's safer and try to use the 'shift' key where it'll make your password stronger. Next is to not take for granted any emails or calls that you get if it's about your bank and especially your bank. It's your money, it's your life. No money no life if you ask me. Next is for the telco companies, I think you should request the real owner and the real identification card to be present in order to replace a sim card.

Shine on,
