cyber crimes

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« In the news this week was the Twitter hacked accounts of Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Barack Obama, and Elon Musk. It’s been revealed the hack was at the twitter admin level allowing the criminals to tweet for multiple accounts, and the criminal access came through phishing. Another slightly older event was the arrest of Hushpuppi who is a Nigerian National resident of Dubai. Hushpuppi accumulated a fortune and he flaunted it through his bling bling life on social media. In addition to the lux cars and private jets the pic that was memorable for me was him lounging covered in a Louis Vuitton cover. The size and the frequency of the pattern matched the famous handbags. BEC was Hushpuppi’s MO, which allows a cyber criminal access to an account of a person who pays bills for a company, and through phishing, hacking, and deception the criminal replaces invoice emails with fraudulent invoice emails, which directs the payment into the hands of criminals. Since learning of BEC through the news of Hushpuppi’s arrest I found a BEC phishing email in my inbox. The text of the criminal-intent email asked me to forward it to accounts payable. Dear kind readers: I recorded an unscripted vid last night on my youtube channel on these two cyber crimes. Since you made it this far: YouTube. Sincerely, Tom Doody »» about me 302-990-2346
