Bank Robbers Steal $40 Million Using The Internet
Visualize an $81 million bank robbery! Masked men with guns have everyone laying on the floor and demanding someone open the safe and hoping to get out and away in minutes. Just like in the movies.
News flash bank-robbers are no longer using stocking masks and guns. These days if they desire bank robbers never have to leave the comfort of their homes and they get greater amounts than they did the old fashioned way with a much less risk.
Today bank robbers are using technology! Yes hackers are breaking into the computer systems of banks and other financial institutions and stealing millions of dollars.
In March a Turkish computer hacker pleaded guilty in a U.S. court to pulling $40 million out of automated teller machines in 24 countries over a 10 hour period.
