„Es ist eines der größten Cyberverbrechen der Geschichte: Im Februar 2013 erbeuteten Kriminelle mit manipulierten Kreditkarten 40 Millionen Euro. Die Täter plünderten in nur einer Nacht Bankautomaten in 24 Ländern. Der mutmaßliche Kopf der Bande hielt sich in Deutschland auf.

Die „guten“ alten Zeiten der Banküberfälle sind vorbei. Warum noch persönlich eine Bank stürmen, wenn man viel bequemer viel mehr Geld erbeuten kann? Im Februar vergangenen Jahres erbeuteten Verbrecher in nur einer Nacht 40 Millionen Euro in 24 Ländern. Der Mann, der hinter einem der größten Cyberverbrechen der Geschichte steckt, wurde nun in Frankfurt am Main festgenommen, berichtet der „Spiegel“.“

„Bei dem mutmaßlichen Kopf der Verbrecherbande handelt es sich um das türkische Computergenie Ercan Findikoglu. Die Festnahme durch Beamte des Frankfurter Kriminaldauerdienstes erfolgte bereits im Dezember. Der 32-Jährige soll sich während einer Reise nach Frankfurt am Main in das WLAN des Luxushotels, in dem er übernachtete, eingeloggt haben, um seine E-Mails zu lesen. So konnten ihn die Fahnder lokalisieren und mit Hilfe des BKA festnehmen.“

Findikoglu will nicht an die USA ausgeliefert werden

I was amused to read on the Turkish wires that the world’s number two hacker – Ercan Findikoglu (who he? -Ed) – was apprehended recently as he was preparing to empty another million bank accounts electronically.

According to one Turkish report, whilst he could have got 200 years in prison in the US, he will get two to three years in Turkey for his crimes.
The bank hackers was caught (it says here) after a four year electronic chase by the Turkish Anti-Smuggling and Organized Crime Bureau.
When caught as part of Operation Virtual Earthquake, he apparently had the details of a million people’s card accounts on him.
Oh really?
Incredibly, the Turkish Plod claim that one of his couriers was too lazy to carry a bag containing $400,000 to his family’s second floor flat, so lobbed it on to the balcony.
Yeah, rrrrrright…
Findikoglu, meanwhile, replaced a Lexus he bought last year from Dubai, saying that its white leather seats tended to become dirty too quickly. He bought a Range Rover for $120,000 to replace it.
Bizarrely, the story seems genuine in parts, but the some bits are a bit OTT.
I wonder what bits are true…
