Arrests over £1m student loan phishing scam

Police say students on government loan schemes conned into revealing bank details, which were then used to withdraw money

Six people have been arrested over a £1m online phishing scam in which money was stolen from the hacked bank accounts of hundreds of students.

Scotland Yard said a criminal network targeted students on government loan schemes, conning them into revealing their bank account details, which were then used to withdraw amounts of between £1,000 and £5,000 at a time.

The victims received emails asking them to update details on their student bank account via a link to a bogus website.

The Metropolitan police's e-crime unit launched an investigation after being alerted to the scam in August and on Thursday seized computers and other equipment from addresses in London, Manchester and Bolton.

A 26 year-old man and a 25 year-old woman were arrested in Manchester, a 25 year-old man was arrested in Deptford, south London, a 49 year-old woman and a 31 year-old man were arrested in Stratford, north-east London, and a 38 year-old man was arrested in Bolton.

Detective Inspector Mark Raymond from the e-crime unit said: "A great deal of personal information was compromised and cleverly exploited for substantial profits. We have today disrupted a suspected organised group of cybercriminals and prevented further loss to individuals and institutions in the UK.

The suspects, who were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to defraud, money laundering and Computer Misuse Act offences, were being held at police stations in central London, Manchester and Bolton.

The investigation was carried out with the assistance of the Students Loan Company, the banking industry and internet service providers.

Phishing is the act of defrauding an online account holder of information by posing as a legitimate company. It usually involves spam emails being sent to people pretending that there has been a "security update" to their bank, credit card, online shop or similar system.

The user is lured by an email to go and view a webpage, often under the pretence of a "security update", which superficially looks credible but is a fake. The fake page usually include copies of all the elements of the real page, such as an Amazon or eBay page, but is hosted on a hacked server or PC.

Well what we have here is quite the elaborate scam indeed.

Ah the old phishing tactic, an age old technological trick used to acquire users information from there personal computers and then log into accounts with the stolen information and change the receiving account to an account of their own.

One must both applaud and salute the innovation used by the scammers.

them ones where dons do a google search on sql servers and realise it aint suttin they can learn in 20 mins then click the X never to return again.

Hard work and consistency is the key to success in anything. Nothing is an easy fix, If you cant be bothered to put in work in other areas of your life. you aint gonna get paid any dues from the trap, scams or anything else you can think of.

Well if you cannot be bothered to learn PHP/SQL an easier alternative would be to install a keylogger on your boys PC/Laptop (set it up to send you an email attachment of keystrokes every 8 hours or so)

You will have deets of his Hotmail, Facebook, uni login & even his student loans account. Do this in an internet cafe and the stakes are high.
