Account fraud

18.11.2012 16:10

Buyer, generally from abroad, replies to your ad and asks for account verification making two small deposits

Interested buyers, mostly from abroad, contact the seller. Claiming the foreign bank needs to verify the account details, the buyer makes two small deposits less than 1 Euros each into the seller’s account. After that, the seller is asked to validate his/her banking data by confirming the deposit totals to the buyer. Alternatively, a verification code is required for the deposit. The trick: scammers abuse the verification procedure of online payment services. Knowing the bank details and the deposited amounts and/or the code, scammers open their own payment service account specifying the seller’s account. This gives scammers full access to the seller’s account without the seller’s knowledge.
