Bank Phishing Scam Foiled

UK police have arrested three men suspected of being involved in thousands of phishing attacks on banking customers.

One Nigerian male and two Romanian men were arrested at a central London hotel on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud and money laundering. From a Met Police statement the three men were allegedly involved in an operation that placed over 2,000 phishing pages on the internet.

The phishing pages mimicked banking sites, and were designed to harvest credentials from unsuspecting users. Fraudsters then illegally accessed the accounts and stole money.

Police have seized computers for forensic examination, and the investigation is currently ongoing. The arrests were made as part of a joint operation between the Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime Unit (PCeU) and the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) cyber unit.
