Base on a request from Iran Cyber Police, Interpol prosecuted a Iranian hacker who scammed $11,000 by hacking a bank account.
“Detectors imitated their investigations after receiving a complaint from someone who claimed his bank account has been hacked and the money inside that withdraws via online banking system.” Mohammad Haji Loo, The chief of Qazvin’s Cyber Police, said.
“Our researches showed that the money was used to purchase cell phone prepaid charges from online shops in several stages.” He continued.
“Detectors found the identifications of the hacker who was escaped to Turkey. We have refunded $10,000 to the bank’s customer until now. Also we have requested Interpol to prosecute the guy.” Haji Loo added.
Internet crimes have been increased in Iran dramatically and most of people use online banking services.
