This latest court filing for Manhattan District attorney Cy Vance is in response to the president's claims that this is a fishing expedition that there's no legal basis for Vance to get eight years of the president's tax returns. Van says his basis rests on what he calls a mountainous record of misconduct allegations, citing news reports from the past several years around potential fraud and record falsifications. Former federal prosecutor Laurie Levinson, now loyal, a law school professor, says Vance's filing ups the ante. His investigation is targeted in on the president's business. But it may be also that the president and his tax fraud is part of the investigation.

Nikola founder quits amid fraud allegations
"Of electric vehicle maker Nicola are sliding after the resignation of its founder and executive chairman. The stock is down more than 17%. Today. Let's see what's going on. Jeff Gilbert is here. CBS Auto reporter based in Detroit. Jeff, What's going on with Nicola? You know Nikola was a darling of Wall Street. Just a few years ago. Nickel, Of course, the first name of inventor Nikola Tesla. So, obviously you got that comparison right to begin with. They want to make an electric pick up front. Wall Street thought it was great. GM thought it was great, so they made a $2 billion investment in that company. And now all of a sudden, there are allegations against the chairman. He leaves and he was replaced by somebody with very close ties to General motors and explain that connection because GM obviously has a lot riding on this exactly. Two weeks ago, GM announced that it's taken an 11% stake in the company work. $2 billion. They didn't pay a billion dollars to billion dollars, but they're going to let Nikola produced their vehicle in in a GM facility. Well, one of the board members of Nicholas, a man named Steve Girsky, who had been a General Motors vice here, There are many reports that he's a man who actually orchestrated the deal and now as Nicholas CEO and founder, or whether chairman and founder leaves Girsky becomes the new chairman of Nicholas. So it's a very interesting tie up that connects him a lot more closely to General Motors. And the hope. Of course, on the part of investors is that the technology is what Nicholas says. It's going to be, and also that they're going to be able to actually produce this stuff. Exactly, And that was a concern raised by an investor who said that he didn't feel they really had the technology behind some of their claims. GM defended them, They said. They did their due diligence, and GM is giving them a place to produce his vehicle. They haven't said yet, so GM does and some gravitas for lack of a better word. To Nikola, but still got a lot of investors concerned. I haven't seen the latest numbers, but the stock has really been falling today. Yeah, it's down about 17.5%. So a significant fall for sure. Thank you so much. That is Jeff Gilbert, CBS Auto reporter based in Detroit.

Trump's false claims on mail-in voting do more to harm elections than threat of fraud, experts say
"Calls mail in voting A scam This is the six o'clock report. I'm Matt reeks breaking now. It's one of the way many thousands of us are going to vote in this year's election in November. President Trump slamming mail in votes tonight, calling it the scam of all time. At the same time, his administration is working to stop those mail ballots in the courts. His claims of mail in ballot fraud has become a daily presidential talking point. This is going to be the scam of all time. The president once again without evidence, saying unsolicited mail in ballots will lead to a rigged election. Shin, and he's betting federal judge will say it's unconstitutional. Hopefully, they'll be able to see this clearly and stop it. The president himself, however, is sending his absentee ballot by mail. Andy Field, ABC NEWS Washington
US banning use of WeChat, TikTok for national security
"All right. I'm sorry I didn't mean to be flip it but here's an example of what you're talking about Shannon. Possibly earlier than I expected the US Commerce Department announced the details of what qualifies for band transactions under the two executive orders affecting we chat and Tiktok I thought we wouldn't get until Sunday, but we got them today both we chat and Tiktok APPS will not be legal to distribute in the United States as of September twentieth. So APP stores will need to remove them just like apple decided to remove fortnight, they'll have to remove tiktok and we chat as we'll google play or. Any other APP store. Now, these executive orders can be rescinded if the Oracle deal is acceptable to the administration, keep an eye out. This isn't the final word but if condition stay as they are now that has to happen as of Sunday additionally on September twentieth taking payments through the we chat APP will be illegal. So stores in the US can't accept we chat that is often done for Chinese tourists to make it easier for them to pay. So that will not be allowed. For we chat in particular on September twentieth the US is forbidding the following any US company hosting any part of the we chat APP, a cdn service providing service to we chat any contracted transit or peering services doesn't mean that they can't transit the service but any agreement that says we'll give you peering as long as you give us peering back right or we'll. We'll give transit service if you pay us this much US companies can't. Do that anymore and any use of we check code in other APPS or services in the US. Lot Of folks think this is a first amendment violation because code is considered speech under a lot of precedents. But the idea here is stop clones to say, well, you can't just go take the we check code, put it in a different APP called something else under a different company. So you can't use the we check code in other services. This one's tricky. A dozen seemed mean we chat has to be actively blocked from the Internet. They're not asking ISP's block the we chat service they're slow down it means cdn's and transit providers can't work with ten cents on the we chat service, which would greatly reduce its reliability and availability possibly to make it almost useless. Those same prohibitions will not apply to tick Tock until November twelfth. So basically Oracle's got until November twelfth to get the deal done or tick tock becomes unusable as well. In summary As of September twentieth you won't be able to down the we chat download. We had dot from APPs stores in the US but if you have them already, you can keep them. They won't get security updates though. And we chat won't work very well but tick tock will still work as normal if you've got it until November twelfth. A couple other notes here, US Magistrate Judge Laura Bieler ruled Friday that she would not issue a preliminary injunction against this we chat order she previously had said she might be willing to because the original executive order issued in. August was a little vague but said, Friday hey. Now we have the details not vegas anymore. So. She says, this complaint is now moot. Further filings from the we at user alliance are expected to argue that it's not moot. We'll see if those come. Also instagram head at a Maseri tweeted that quote a US Tock Band would be quite bad for Instagram facebook and the Internet more broadly and in response Tiktok interim CEO Vanessa Pappas the head of tiktok in Santa Monica. Asked facebook and instagram quote publicly join our challenge and support our litigation in other words like fine. If you believe that we need your help. Of course, the president as of this recording has not yet issued his decision on the proposed deal for Oracle. It's expected at any moment oracle wants to become a trusted tech partner and minority owner in new us-based tech. Company. Owned by Bite Dance. The. Saga continues I imagine we might. Have this all solved by Monday but of course, then it's onto the next thing. How your feeling about this. Well Shannon I don't know about you but I am I was laid to the TIKTOK game but an enthusiastic TIKTOK USER I don't make stuff but I I watch other things and I really liked the APP and I'm not alone it's a very, very popular up and I can't really think of I've thought of I was trying to think of has this ever happened before some some time where there was something that I liked technology wise. That was then you kind of taken from me based on where I live a lot of other countries and regions in the world are very used to this I can't think of one I really can't. I can think of APPs or services that were available somewhere else and then they came to the US. Eventually, we're never did but not something that was sort of taken away. So I just wondered what the Creator Backlash all this is going to be like. There's a big creator backlash I. I'm sure that it's going to happen quite soon to like there's a lot of people that have that are creators on. TIKTOK. That had not diversified and just thinking of it from that Creator side there's a lot of people that are going to lose income just specifically with tiktok but also with we chat because we chat has always been. So internationally friendly where people can use it across borders. So there's a lot of like developers. There's a lot of companies that use we chat for business. So this is not only going to be hurting TIKTOK and we chat but. It's also going to be hurting the people that use it as well for their own businesses and I. Don't know if if this was considered when they decided to put in put this ban in place, and that's very very concerning not just because you know that that freedom of the Internet as I was mentioning earlier with the previous story but also from the whole income aspect of like at all times in in twenty twenty when we have a pandemic and they're going to remove the these applications because they're based in a different country and we're going to be losing the opportunities to conduct business because of that. Keep in mind folks when you're forming your opinion about this and I'm not telling you what opinion to have when I say this that. It is not against the rules for the United States to ban an APP we ban all kinds. Of APPS. There are APPs that we all agree should be gone child pornography fraud. Those kinds of APPS. What's at issue here is the administration is saying these two APPS are just as dangerous to our national security and to more personal data as a fraud APP and therefore yes, it's going to have fallout, but it's because they're dangerous apps like they pretend to give you something good but they're really. Supporting an enemy and we can't allow that seem that. That is the argument that is being made. And we can stay the same argument about a lot of social media platforms. I mean we we have American platforms that do dangerous things, but they are not under the supervision of the Chinese government. So there is a difference. It's a definitive difference and you can decide yes you want to think about it. I'm glad you added that comment that there needs to be a definitive difference. There needs to be proof and evidence. real quickly before we wrap this up yesterday, we reported that the Oracle deals term sheet would create a company called Tick Tock global based in the US with its own board of directors. We got a few more details on that term sheet axios llosa's INA freed has more detail saying the term sheet describes three boards. A board approved by the US government would oversee TIKTOK US and include a security director and an independent data security expert. With national security credentials, which is pretty much the description of a former CIA or NSA officials. So the US government would put a board to oversee the operations of tiktok in the US while Oracle would operate it. A security subcommittee of that board would be composed of US citizens with veto power over Tick Tock Global Security data privacy decisions in the US, and then there would be a board of directors independent of Bite dance over tiktok global. So Little more detail there for you to consider.

Conviction politics: Floridas disenfranchised felons
"Joe Biden took to the campaign trail in Florida, this week. As a rally for Hispanic voters Mr. Biden emphasized seemed like a eight point. Getting people out to vote. So please. This election. Make your vote her. Through your vote, your voices her. Make a plan to vote has been pointed out. Make your plan to help your community for. But the very act of voting in this year's election has become contentious. President trump has been railing against mailing voting is having little evidence of fraud this whole ballot system where you can send it in. and. It's not even requested. We're not talking about it solicited. They're unsolicited ballots and they're sent in is very dangerous or our country and in Florida a fight over voting rights for former felons could see hundreds of thousands of people disenfranchised. So. In Two thousand eighteen voters in Florida approved a constitutional amendment allowing felons who had served their time except for murderers at certain sex related offenders to vote in elections. After that amendment passed Florida's Republican legislature passed a law saying, that's fine. They can vote but they have to pay back all the fines, fees and restitution costs of their incarceration. John Facile is economists. Washington correspondent. So that's the sort of thing that sounds quite reasonable. Right if you stole one hundred bucks from someone, you gotta pay back what you stole before you can vote but Florida's criminal justice system is unusually reliant on fines and fees from offenders. So you have people who had been convicted of felonies poor people who had to pay fifty dollars to get a public defender or one hundred bucks for some sort of fee to file a complaint. then. You also had fines levied on them that were quite heavy. So I spoke to one woman who was convicted of her part in a fraud scheme that she says was unwitting, but she was ordered to pay back fifty, nine, million dollars and no. One's ever going to be able to do that. I spent time with another young man who was convicted of a felony while he was basically just out of school and it turns out that when he went to registered to vote, he owed four thousand dollars to the county where he was arrested nobody had ever told him. That and other courts allowing this law to stand the courts have let it stand on Friday the last court in Florida weighed in and they've let the stand the court said the fines and fees were part of the criminal sentence. So they couldn't be said to a fully completed their full sentence until they had paid off everything they were told to pay off. So it looks as though almost eight hundred thousand people who thought they would be able to vote may not be able to vote and so is the supreme court likely to weigh in at this point now again? It's probably not going to go to the supreme. Court again, they declined to hear it in July, before that last appeal they declined over the strong objections of Justice Sotomayor who accused her colleagues of continuing trend of condoning disenfranchisement that's in Florida is this happening else? Well, the rules regarding where and how felons can vote changed dramatically from state to state you have some states like for mountain main where people can vote while in. Prison and you have some states like Florida used to be where if you've been convicted of a felony anytime, you never have the right to vote. So it's a Patchwork of laws regarding felony and franchise, but the trend has been over the past decade or so to loosen restrictions rather than strengthen them. But as we've seen in Florida sometimes that involves bats lighting sometimes the loosening isn't as loosened practice as it appears it should be. Felons aside, how easy or hard is it in general for people who exercise their right to vote in America? It's harder than I think it should be it's harder than most people think it should be it used to be the case that the Voting Rights Act which was passed in nineteen sixty five required jurisdictions with a history of voter discrimination. To submit any changes to how they conduct elections to the Justice Department in two, thousand, thirteen, the supreme court basically gutted it. The Voting Rights Act they said that requirements should no longer apply since then around seventeen hundred polling places have closed and previously covered jurisdictions, the largest numbers were in Texas Arizona and and most of those places are in heavily minority district. There's also the problem of long lines often what I found that I was recovering Super Tuesday in Texas before everything shutdown is that in suburban precincts. White it was much easier to vote than in inner city precincts, which were which were heavily African American of the Tino. In two, thousand, sixteen around half a million voters failed to cast ballots at their polling places because of problems at those polling locations. So I think people tend to think of voter suppression as as physically keeping people away from the polls that really doesn't happen. What does happen is that the exercise the franchise is likely to be much more onerous if you're a non white than if you're white, are we seeing any of those problems this round this time round for the election that's coming up. Yeah. We saw them in full force in Wisconsin in their primary earlier this spring in April. Shortage of poll workers as much of America does as result, they're only five precincts total in the city of Milwaukee, which is the state's biggest city in which had one hundred, eighty precincts in two, thousand sixteen. There are a lot of places that are really concerned about having enough poll workers to have all the polling place that should be open poll workers tend to be retirees, which puts them at high risk of Covid, and so a lot of them understandably don't WanNa come out and and sit in the crowded place for long hours. But there's a fear that this shortage of poll workers is GONNA lead to a lot fewer polling places in there should be. Perhaps. It's a naive question but why would anyone want to make harder for people to vote? So there are those who say that because Republicans are so dependent on older white voters who tend to be the most reliable voters that is in their interest to make it harder for non white and young voters to vote. Donald Trump. When he was talking about expanding postal voting essentially gave the game away. He said they had things levels of voting that if you ever agree to it, you'd never have a republican elected in this country again. So it seems as though Republicans rather than trying to appeal to as many voters as possible regardless of race color creed or. Are really trying to tailor the electric to best suit themselves. What about voting by mail something that would seem obvious into pandemic but that's been hugely divisive. This round hasn't it. Yeah Donald Trump has been inveighing against it, which is odd because there's a ton of research that shows that voting by mail tends to improve turnout but not for any particular political party more recently, he has been encouraging his supporters to vote by mail I. Think he has got nervous that if Democrats vote by mail and huge numbers and Republicans don't vote by mail at all then this may lead to an imbalance in the results that doesn't favor him. There have been polls that have showed that as many as fifty percent of Democrats, more plan to vote by mail whereas only one in five Republicans do you can imagine it sort of pandemic situation in red states where Republicans don't want to go to the polls but think that voting by mail is corrupt is now trying to walk back some of the damage you may have caused. How do all these trends impact the election this year? Do you think John? I think that between the president inveighing against the election warning that it's going to be rigged concerns about foreign interference. There is an alarming number of Americans people on both sides of the aisle who thinks that this year's election won't be free and fair I. Think there are concerns that people may be less likely to vote and that once they vote, they'll be less likely. To accept the results of the elections that is going to lead people to lose faith in democracy itself for those who do want get the vote out what are they doing about it? Well, people can check their registration status early, they could make sure that their friends and neighbors are all registered. I think there's a lot of worry among Democrats because traditional touch points that. They use to register voters you know the DMV or college voter registration drives those aren't happening now because of the pandemic and there are fears that young people are not registering at the numbers they should be. But for Florida's felons, there have been organizations that are working to pay off fines and fees almost four million dollars have been raised so far. Bloomberg who had been. Running for president said, he will spend one hundred million dollars of his own money to help Joe Biden win in. Florida. I think there's there's a hope that some of that will go to paying off fines and fees, but unfortunately, it looks like whatever happens not everyone who thought that they would be eligible to vote will, in fact, be eligible to vote this fall in Florida.

Now, NBC News, National Security, and justice correspondent Julia Ainsley has been following this story and joins US tonight Julia give us the benefit of your reporting talking to these women directly and trying to reach one of the attorneys in this case. So Brian, what we can tell you is that we have spoken to four attorneys who say that their clients who were in the Irwin County detention center in Georgia were sent to this doctor. His name is Mahindra Amine. That is the doctor that these lawyers each individually identified without us prompting his name we reached out to him and I've deficit.

Did we learn more of the story we've also learned that this doctor is someone who they send detainees to outside of the facility. He's not actually working in side for ice. One other detail though Brian that I did learn about this doctor is that in two thousand, fifteen, he and other doctors had to settle and pay over five hundred thousand dollars in civil penalties for Medicaid and Medicare fraud with the Justice Department that settlement and twenty, five hundred.

You're, you know, you're absolutely right now, I was really listening hard at what you're saying about, you know, people that have former law enforcement experience me included. But you know, you're I've been in this line of work for a long time. If you don't stay current, if you don't eve, all of your mindset in really get ahead of the bad guys who education and training going to conferences networking in partnering and breaking down silos and trying to learn as much as you can you're you're gonna be left behind, you know, and the other point you have which I really really like is that you don't have to be a former investigator law enforcement military, whatever to to really do this work. And now we're talking about situational skills and critical thinking and really being able to understand suspicious transactions of its online and really having that mindset to identify trends in commonalities in how they integrate or subjugate your operational processes that are causing the law. So it's a rounded mindset and background. To do this job you do and you know beyond not being complacent and beyond always wind to grow. And learn you do have to have that mindset of really wanting to dig in. There's been very little fraud that I've found or I've ever detected by just getting lucky. I mean, it does happen to it. I'm sure over your career. There have been those cases like the one that you mentioned the gecko like law enforcement got real lucky that the. Yeah. Yeah. They decided to but dial and give their exact triangulating position of where they are. It does happen. But my experience it's few and far between you really have to be willing to ask why right dig into into not form your own theory and just go for it. But really be objective independent in in that thinking, so that, you know, you don't just become bias. And here's exactly what happened. And usually when that happens you end up being wrong. That's exactly right. The in. I'm still old school taught by some of my mentors long ago. But the easy way out is is follow the obvious evidence. Follow the obvious Bagai who committed this particular crime. That's the easy way out the Hardaway and sometimes in the in more rewarding way is you just follow the trail of evidence. Illit take you no matter where it takes you. And sometimes it takes you directions, as you know to places you never been before. So that suspect you thought of at I was your target is not even close 'cause you. Did the honest thing by following the the evidence Illit take you wherever it may go. Yeah. You know, there was a number years ago. I was overseas doing an investigation. We thought technically we could prove how what was occurring was occurring. And this was a big fraud. Definitely in the millions. And the fact is the technology couldn't prove it. But it came down to honing in on the right people to ask the right questions to add something that should have been way early on just got skipped and put too much emphasis. We put too much emphasis on letting technology. Prove how happened talk about going old school man, we we pulled out a conference room. And we started interviewing it was the interviewing that we then Raval to find who was actually allegedly, but then proven to have committed the fraud. And so yeah, you like I love what you're saying. You have to really just chase it and follow it. And that's my experience that's been the where you get the best results. Yes. Far

Your whole story about but dialing the whole time. Like, I'm on. I hope I'm not laughing too hard. I was hoping to we're laughing. I was laughing with is hard to control that I read that story like six times preparing for this. And I'm trying to magin the whole thing. I don't know you gotta take your phone to you know, this big crime masterminded. I don't know what do you Instagram in your friends when when you're doing this scrum, and you can't make it up by lot skip. Thanks so much for having me, man. I'm excited honor to be here. I'm honored to. I it's, you know, we built a relationship or the last several months, and we both share a lot of the same ideas and passion for building awareness in creating that higher education level for all those great fraud fighters fraud practitioners out there always trying to get a little bit of a leg up on the bad guys. And you know, one thing I was a, you know, pre podcast review. I just have to ask how did you come up with the name for your company, especially fraud? Not frog dot com. I just love that. That's awesome. You know, it goes back over a decade ago. When I when I first started telling people that I was a fraud investing. Later. I would have a series of conversations. I thought I was doing a great job selling what I was doing. Usually it was against it was strangers or people sit next to me on a plane and go into this elaborate discussion of how I prevent detect fraud. And finally, they look at me with this puzzled face like, okay, I understand preventive how many frogs are their in business's that you go into. And so it just became one of those things remind okay, it's it is fraud, not frog. So that was kind of the main thing that's the tagline for the website lers prevent- prevent detect fraud, not frogs. So you're not into fibia NHS as others would think. You know, herpetology never was a strength of mine. So no, that's awesome. Pay. So you got an extensive background in a lot of great content credentials. Can can you tell our listeners a little bit more about your background, and how you got in this business. Yeah. Happy to you know, what I don't claim to to know everything there is about. But but I have had I've been fortunate to have a lot of good experiences. It all started with trying to break into the industry. I I literally applied for over fifty jobs, and I could not get in everyone required experience to get experience. And I just couldn't get in. And so finally found a company that was willing to take me on as a cyber security consultant, which I thought was a little ironic because I had no experience, but that was the titles junior cyber security consultant in amazing company that gave me amazing opportunities to travel world in in find and actually build a fraud program. So I was able to do that. We we did it for Larr. Fortune companies and then throughout my career of been able to help establish and build and mature other fraud and cyber security programs. This awesome. You talked about some of the first steps she took. But what were some of the things that you think that really got you that first of job to get started, you know, inside or security and Sarah security consulting. So it was one of the situations where I had to go above and beyond. I was competing against, you know, hundreds of other people in my state same time for the few jobs that existed jobs in security, then aren't they didn't flourish. Like they do now back. There's more demand than inventory now today ten twelve years later, so the few that actually happens you you had a fight for and I went to an after hours mentoring event, the things that most college students are like, yeah, I'm not going to that. I listened to this this speech that to be honest to this day was probably the worst pres. Stations. I'd ever been to. But afterwards, I went to the the presenter and just mass. The question can I how can I break into the industry? Do you know of any opportunities? And while he didn't give the most stellar presentation. He was connected, and he's like, oh, I know of an internship. Let me send you over to that. Gimme your resume in literally within three weeks. I had a job. So after trying to do what everyone else had done apply. Apply. Not even get an interview just reject letter after reject letter took me getting out of my shell. And just you know, approaching someone and just saying this is what I'm looking for do, you know of an opportunity and literally within three weeks. I had the job John. I think that's always the difference maker. I mean, it's resumes. Get lost in the crowd yet to show people that you're unique, you know, the Matt has a different look on a different perspective of looking at things from not always traditional perspective in when you do that you set yourself apart from everybody else's, you know, doing this job like they just read it out of a book. Yeah. Even skip even right after I got the job. I quickly realized on this. You know, I think there were seven or eight of us on that team that supported in over one hundred thousand employees. I I realized quick I've got a differentiate myself or I'm going to die. I mean, I I literally the best thing I could do is bring them coffee and Rama noodles. And so I said how can I how can I ask a skill? Set are grow a skill set that can make me valuable to this company to where they're gonna wanna keep me and move it from an internship to full time gig, which is exactly what happened after just a few months. And so yeah, I took the initiative to find something that what I believe didn't exist at the time by the skill set. And that's where I researched this certification called a certified fraud examiner. And you know, I scrolled through it. I'm like, man. This is exactly what I wanted to do. I don't know if you knew this, but I actually wanted to law enforcement and go into federal in just my life. Didn't take down course, which I'm super grateful things wouldn't have turned out the way they did how to gone that route. But I always wanted to be kind of that investigative space. So I found this this designation called certified fraud examiners ACF, E dot com. And just said, this is exactly what I need personally. But more than that what this company needs to help further. A mature their cyber program. So I took it to our to my boss chief information security officer at the time. I said, hey, what do you think about this? And you know, he took a chance on me. And I'm grateful to that to this day took a chance on me realize that we could use that to further the business, and we actually build a process that landed us multi multi million dollar contracts, a really really cool thing. So awesome. Hey, hey, everyone thinks for tuning if you're just now tuning in. We're speaking with Matt Khorasan with audit law consultancy and frog not fraud dot com. And right now, if you're just tuning in, we're really diving deep until Hal mad is really transforming anti-fraud CP's or continuing education and professional development for fraud fighters in it's so important, and this is a great conversation. Because a lot of us in his interesting so often we get caught up in just focusing on investigations in the fraud losses and really bad guys. But really staying ahead of the bad guys really comes from continual edge. Education. I mean, really building those skills the fight the bad guy. So what what do you really think? How can we leverage? Some existing skill sets for those who are really looking to break into this anti-fraud industry. What's some of the things you think are most important? I appreciate that question. It is tough industry break into. But it's an even tougher industry to stay competitive. So it's not one. And that's why love it so much. It's so dynamic. It's so fluid. You can't just rest on prior experience. You always have to be getting better. What you do investigators that have thirty and forty years experience men, they have a ton of Allieu. But where what I'm seeing is. They're lacking in how fraud is committed now today in how it will be committed in the future. And so that's one of my main missions is helping people get quality education. It's modern it's relevant. That's not the boring side deck that everyone just wants to dilate and two points bullet points. It's like give me the deck. I can read the deck. But yes, what I can't read his experience. So I focus on finding people who are passionate about sharing their experience. You know, the truth is health was committed thirty and forty years ago doesn't fairy too much now it's the same frauds happening. They're just doing it a different way. And so you have to detect it a different way. So man, anyone that I can talk to that Scott thirty forty years experience, even twenty I gravitate to them and try and pull from them their experience, and and then get them to share it in a way that perhaps his different than they've done before. Like, I said not through a PowerPoint, but through a live video presentation or through an online training that that is interactive through a group forums through Facebook groups, just the ability in live sessions, of course. But just to get them in front of other investigators other people who are trying to sharpen their craft. It's been an absolute. Mine. I think the other question you asked is how how do you break into this industry? How to us how to use your existing skill sets? So I'm a huge believer. You don't have to come from military or law enforcement to be a fraud examiner. Now, if you have that you do have an upper edge in some ways, but I've talked to people who have been fast food workers construction workers in oceanographer. I talked to someone who's an ocean honor for the becoming. Yeah.

"Welcome to ruin a back is day radio podcast with fraud expert skip buyers. This is your guide to fighting fraud and chargebacks learn the best fraud prevention solutions and strategies how to enhance your fraud prevention team and held on prosecute criminals. Now, here's your host skip buyers. Hello, everyone in for tuning into ruin a bag is day radio. Combat. Hey, we got a great news article this week as some other information elected share some other things have been hitting the news quite a bit in the last couple of weeks. And I thought I was sure that with you guys. A lot of good information. You could take back to work for to your friends or family to help them prevent from being a victim from fraudsters and Mauer attacks and this week, but I really wanna talk about is how fraudsters exploited malware for financial gain so Mao where what is now receives in the news and probably hits your spam? Folder credit bit from other publications or other companies trying to get your business, but Mauer's any softer intentionally designed to cause damage to computer. Maybe it's your server your computer network and smell or does it damage after it's already implanted or introduce in some way into a target, computer or network. So Mauer is going to be attached most likely to some sort of phishing Email in. Somehow, you the user or someone else in your company or network does something that unfolds this code that's part of this, malware, I could be commuted computer, viruses, or worms Trojan horses. Sometimes it's spyware ransomware on there's all kinds of other terms. But Mallard basic form is is militias. It has malicious intent in it acts against you know, your company's best interests or your best interests. And there's something harmful with that malware that is typically designed to still your personal information. And so that the Bagai can have financial gain at some point by defrauding you or someone else. So before it gets started tradition. Here's always talk about stupid criminals in boy, there's not a not a day that goes by that. I don't have a hard time. Finding some news articles about dumb criminals, and this is a news article adult Oklahoma involving Uber, and it looks like things at work. Out well for three Oklahoma City teenagers who allegedly planned to rob a Bank using Uber as transportation and police say that the Uber driver who took the to debate one Tuesday afternoon called Thorndike's EFI heard one of them say he had a gun and he's on a cap somebody. So police said that the gun was later found on one of the teams after he tried to fight officers who arrived at the Bank, the teens had apparently already arranged in Uber for their getaway. Car says the news crew, it looks like the Uber driver his name. Mr. K says he was waiting outside the Bank. We saw the teenagers being taken away in handcuffs interested in was told by an officer that there had been a robbery attempt. Well, I guess he was right. Looks like according to drivers says, hey, they called me for the getter getaway car. Can you believe that? Hey, if you're going to do something like that like, rob a Bank, get your own car. He says, yeah. No kidding. Pretty stupid. What are they thinking? I mean, I'm gonna call Uber driver. Hey, buddy, wait outside here. So I'm gonna go rob this Bank and stick around long enough. So I can hop in. And we get away in time crazy stuff. I mean, I'm sure there's some sort of a legal substance involved there. They were taking before the robbery or before they decided to call Uber. Thank you for that. Great news, article out of home. That's awesome. So today fold in little bit more information about how fraudsters exploit malware for financial gain. So this week. I like to talk about a big case that the feds may just about a week ago. Just very recent. He may seen it in the news recently. But this is a very important case federal case where two Romanian cybercriminals were convicted of all twenty one counts relating to infect the over four hundred thousand victim computers with Mauer Hess. Right inflicting in being victim computers with Mauer and stealing millions and millions of dollars. And this is the actual press release that came out from the Justice department. Just very recently federal grand jury last week convicted to Bucharest Romanian residents of Twenty-one counts related to their scheme to infect victim. Computers with malware in order to steal credit card numbers and other information to sell on the dark market the dark web and other websites, and they are. Our intent was to mind crypto currency engage in online auction fraud and nounce by assistant attorney general Brian been cow sqi of the Justice Department's criminal division way to go menace. Also to these defendants were convicted at the twelve day trial of conspiracy to commit wire fraud conspiracy to traffic in counterfeit service marks that's interesting aggravated identity theft conspiracy to commit money laundering, in twelve counts of wire fraud each person there so citizen will begin in a few months in a Cording to testimony at the trial in other court documents one of the co conspirators who pleaded guilty collectively operated a criminal conspiracy out of Bucharest Romania. So we've been talking about this for months now on these podcasts about the infusion of international crime gangs targeting. Americans here in the United States is still are ideas and our cash, obviously, it's amazing how widespread in worldwide. This problem phenomenon is so the press release goes on says apparently this all began in two thousand seven with the development of proprietary malware, which they disseminated through militias emails purporting to be legitimate from entities like Western Union nor nanny virus and the IRS. So this is a old scheme being redone again over and over again. And why do the bag is all the fraudsters? All these people who are bad guys all over the world. Keep doing the same thing over and over to target us. That's right because it works. It's easy. It keeps working we need to keep getting the awareness out there in educate, everyone about the potential problems with Mauer and how the bad guys exploit this now where for their financial gain to commit. Fraud, you know. So again, what is Maur while this is software. This intentionally designed to cause damage to computers or servers or computer networks in it does damage of his after it has been in planted in some way on a computer. So how is this done think real hard? Now, the house is done while you're right. It's is from emails fishing. That's what this is about. This is why you see so many emails come in. And you can't understand why you're getting all these strange emails is fishing in what is fishing? Let's let's regroup in talk about what fishing is so fishing. Basically is Email messages claiming to come from a recognized source. You know, be company most likely someone you recognize it
"fraud" Discussed on Ruin a Bad Guy's Day Radio - Fraud Prevention Podcast
"Welcome to ruin a Bank is day radio podcast with fraud expert skip buyers. This is your guide to fighting fraud and chargebacks learn the best front provincial solutions and strategies how to enhance your fraud prevention team, and how to prosecute criminals. Now, here's your host skip buyers. Hello everyone. Thank you for tuning into ruin a bad guys day radio show. Hey, I'm skip Myers. Your hosts are bad guys day radio. And I wanna start off by thanking everyone who continues to support the program, and especially those of you. He keeps any all those great emails and feedback. Hey, we have a great show lined up this week, including a very very special guest that helps you fight fraudsters and help prevent chargebacks before they really happen through VM PI or visas Merson purses inquiry programs, so before we get started. Let's discuss some fraud stance that are out there right now that will probably make you lose sleep tonight might not know that eighty six percent of all chargebacks may be cases of friendly frog in friendly fraud is increasing at a forty one percent, right. And it's been increasing that at that rate for over the past two years and seeing pe- losses will reach as staggering seven point two billion dollars by the year twenty twenty. And what's really a scary statistic? Is that approximately eight and ten customers admit to filing a charge van is of actually working out the issues to regularly with the seller or merchant? And that's what we don't talk about today. How can we really target Brindley Frossard, and and really target are charged program with reducing the amount of losses to our company and streamline the processes that our internal controls have to five chargebacks and disputes. So today as promise Rudy bad guys day radio will be featuring some the top fraud fighters industry throughout two thousand nineteen and today, I'm especially excited to introduce to you Scott Adams, withdrawn DVD, Scott at founder of thraw TV dot com has over twenty years of experience in the field of payments as both the merchant and fraud expert. He's worked with companies large and small Therese reduce chargebacks improve our y and fight fraud on multiple platforms. So we're. Gonna discuss the visa Mercer purchase inquiry program or VM PI. And how Scott's expertise can help save time with those disputes in eventually reduce charge bang. If your tension, please. So, hey, Scott. I'm so glad you could join us today. How are you? I'm doing great skip. Thanks for having me. That's awesome. Hey, you know, we've had a lot of discussions about this and known each other for a few years, and you really make an impact in fighting fraud and helping other versions really, reduce chargebacks and losses. Can you? Tell us me in our listeners more about VM PI, and how it works and make chores Bax dispute simpler and more automated. Yes, sure. So VP is actually a really interesting product that these decide to launch a few years back and idea was is that the one of the big problems, and you know, you just talked about Satistics around friendly fraud is that most of the time a few consumer looks at the credit card statement, all they see is a twenty something character descriptors, which oftentimes has a bunch of diversion. And so think about if you're a consumer you've got a credit card, you I'm sure you've had a time where you've looked at your statement and saw charge and said, okay, what is this and no idea, and I have. Yeah. Everyone has it doesn't matter. You could. Make one charge a month. And that's going to happen. Because you know, the merchant is not required a pissing there that makes sense in really most marches. Don't know any better. They don't understand that that descriptors is all the consumer has the recognize charge. So oftentimes, especially for new merchant. It's like a corporate name. You know, what who's going to recognize that you're gonna recognize the website? You're gonna recognize the the game your kids playing whatever that might be so visa decides that they needed a better way to handle this. And so that's where VPI came from. And they said, you know, let's make a product where the merchant can actually respond more or less directly to the merchants or site to the consumers question of what is this? And so they created the system it's actually really nice in that, you know, that kind of the flow goes, let's say that the consumer calls in to their credit card company. And you know, says, hey, I don't recognize this in the past that would just become a charge back because the issue or new knows no more about that transaction than the consumer does. Really, right. They might know. A corporate name or something which still help. Yeah. I've seen like that indicator. Be like db doing business as in. You're exactly right. I I see that. Sometimes I have no clue whatsoever. Even how to decipher that acronym. So it's very common in. Yeah. Very common. And you know, that's the thing is legally, it makes sense your business doesn't have to be the same name. There's a lot of different things legally why you might do that. But the the merchants often, especially neurons don't know to make something better just outside of EMP. I if you're a merchant out there, make sure your descript or actually describe something that the consumer will know about beyond that use the PI. And so we're VPI goes is that so kind of the new process consumer doesn't recognize they call this shore. And now if that is using VM PI, and this is only what visa by the way, they can press a button on their screen in. It'll pop up with more information, and that information could be anything that the merchant wants to pass back. And so. Set up new merchants. I tell them, you know, I need some basic information. But then I say, okay now, tell me what your consumers, but the person that's looking at the credit card statement would recognize and you keep in mind that you know, it might be if your product is targeted mostly for for Dulce for actual cardholders that it might be your your website name product names like that. But VPI lets you actually pass in your full shopping cart information. So if you're a merge of a shopping cart, you push it all in and so now, you know, the consumer called in let's say, this is a some form of website. That's a marketplace. And you know, the scripture might have been the marketplace mate. But the actual purchase was with some other, you know, provider some of the create its products, maybe and the issue now read off. Okay. So you bought it at this website. And here's an Email address that was used to buy it here is the name. Here's maybe an account name. And then if this shopping cart hero here, the five items you bought here, the prices, it looks like. One of these shipped. Here's your tracking number right? Basically the same stuff. You would get in the port at the merchants portal when where you bought is now in this recite. And so the idea being, you know, you you mentioned like helping disputes this actually way before that. And but yeah, the pass it would have been dispute, but the beauty of the system is that now let's that consumer call then they were told them what the what the purchase was and the best situation is that the consumer thin says, oh, wait. I know what that is sorry about or, you know, no charge back notice Butte, no fraud alert and best of all the merchant not only keeps the money, and they're no additional fees, but they keep a happy customer, and they can you. If it's a recurring product they can rebuild again. Or if it's like it's talked about like a shopping cart a marketplace. They keep that customer the customer will come back and buy for them. Again. This has been a long time coming for a service like this. Because I mean, we all know, you know, all of us that are in this business. Especially if you're working chargebacks, we had a way to produce that proof after the charge back was actually filed an and you know, and now we can use that that proof for that evidence of the transaction as a preventative measure before it turns into the charge back on what a great way to streamline the process and make things more efficient and to your point really keep those happy customers. That's it's I kind of as an extension of customer service, unites, if the merchant are, it'd be great if the consumer just call the March, but the card companies made it so easy and pitched it so much on the web on TV that there's no lie ability just call us. Now, they have the tools actually kinda help your customer support. So that works really well. No, that's awesome. In in. I mean, I can see all the time savings with those fraud analysts or those those reps that are actually working those chargebacks everyday making the phone calls sending those emails I mean, the potential to save money in reducing those processing times before they actually turn into chargebacks as huge in. Again. I think what we both can't stress enough. Is that the potential impact of improving your overall customer service metrics is just massive twin
"fraud" Discussed on Ruin a Bad Guy's Day Radio - Fraud Prevention Podcast
"Your particular business or personal needs. Thank you dash lane everyone. It's been interesting week. I can't believe how much news has been coming out about synthetic identity frauds. Let's talk about what is synthetic identity fraud or synthetic identity theft. And so in the last week or so I've been watching all the news, and there's been so many articles in focus on synthetic identities. And I can tell you right now, I'm working with a couple of large companies as we speak involving big cases of. Credit application fraud and credit card fraud involving the term or what we suspect to be related to synthetic identity fraud. So somebody or a group of people, and what it looks like again, we've talked about this and other podcasts is that we have some sort of inter- international criminal enterprises out there stealing Americans identities in some former fashion and using it to create a synthetic identity. So part of this podcasts were to look at the new article that was just released by the legal executive institute in their part of the Thomson Reuters company, but a newly published white paper synthetic identity a new path for government fraud is a question, Mark. There asked the question, how do you catch a thief who doesn't exist? That's a great question. The paper that was published by Thomson. Reuters examines the growing problem synthetic identity fraud or whatever one's spoofing here. Talking about short that up is S. I F Rosza relatively new form of identity theft. And. Which criminals combine pieces of real data in fake information to create an identity entirely for the sole purpose, obviously to fraud company. So and it's almost impossible to trace. So a few podcasts ago told you guys back in December. I had my identity hacked the information has been slow in coming working with law enforcement. I'm also part of LifeLock's personal Lert system on any suspicious activity with my credit file, and that's how this case got started by being communicated or called by them to alert me about suspicious activity on my social security number on that particular case what it's looking light. It looks like it's a hybrid of synthetic identity. The bad guys who were attempting to obtain credit at a women's clothing store. National clothing store, use my social security number but other fictitious or bogus pieces of information. And that fits exactly into this synthetic identity phenomenon that's going on right? Now, does it fits entirely into what I believe to be the real source of the problem where the synthetic identity belongs to someone that has a social security number that has created or someone that has a social security number that hasn't been registered with the major credit bureau. So that's what true identity theft is we'll get into that more a little bit here in a minute. But unlike traditional identity fraud, where someone actually steals a personal person's identity. This paper explains how SAF perpetrators often begin with just a single piece of legitimate personal data like a social security number, and then they start constructing this file full name as a false identity all circling around this this information, and what happens is that. They can cock this package. It looks very much like the identity of a rural person. Whilst would you do it? No, you're trying to fake out banks and credit institutions and other companies that are trying to conduct business via credit in. So what they try to use that false density. Like, I said. Apply for credit in a lot of banks are seeing that loans are being secured, and then found out to be connected to synthetic idea identity or even full the government and governmental agencies to allow Frossard accept or intercept tax returns in different forms of payment that people receive from the government, so this is a big deal right now. And it's probably gonna get worse going forward until some of the legislation that was enacted late last year will go into effect, and as we all know sometimes government agencies operate at a snail's pace. So I think before those bills are some of the governmental institutions out there really start taking this seriously. We don't see the bag is really take advantage of synthetic identity fraud to its fullest potential until these government agencies really start clamping down on some of their internal processes. So right now, finally, there's a wreck. And you know, we all know there's been a record amount of data breaches across all different parts of the economy, and all that data and all that information that's out there right now is expose all of us all exposed. Our personal information more than ever to all these potential criminals across the entire world. And according to the identity theft resource center there have been about one thousand five hundred seventy nine data breaches in two thousand seventeen alone was exposed almost one hundred seventy nine million personal records, including fourteen point two million credit card numbers in one hundred fifty eight million social security numbers. That's a lot of information in the wrong hands. So many of these records. Now circulate is you guys know, and we speak about this quite often on this podcast, but these records now circulate across the dark web where their soul like almost any commodity. You know, your personal data is a new commodity a new the new currency out there. And it's out there. Available to anyone who's willing to pay for it. And now we're seeing some websites not necessarily on the dark web. If you search hard enough on just the regular internet. Anyone of us can get. Well, I'm not saying you should but you can. Find these web sites that are selling personal identity records in that's credit card numbers social security numbers addresses, and so forth to help create a data file with a credit bureau. So how does synthetic identity fraud work, boy, that's a mouthful in? Its let's let's keep calling it s. I f the acronym buddy white in order to commit s I f Roz begin stealing legitimate social security numbers from people that aren't using the credits, you know, looking at some of this and some of the other articles that's parsley. Correct. So it's people who are really using their credit. No what they mean to say is that those are people have social security numbers who have an established credit when you establish credit. You have to do that through one of the three main credit bureaus in that stars usually with the application of a credit card or loan. And so usually what that means is that though security numbers the bad guys want to steal first to commit synthetic synthetic identity theft or synthetic identity fraud are usually those belonging to children or. People who are just new to this country. So they and they were just issued a social security number so in order to build that synthetic identity fraud will then add fake addresses fake, phone numbers and even crates social media accounts, because I know how the system works, and how lot of different investigators or underwriting and different companies that issue credit surge investigate a credit background. And so that's where everything starts to begin. Then while they're using these synthetic identities these began applying for more and more credit online, and basically, they know they're gonna get turned down because we all know that the legitimate way. No when I was younger, I was so excited to get my first credit card at a major departments rows decline. I was too young. I didn't have established credit or payment, you know, with any apartment complex or car dealerships. So I had no credit. I was turned out quite often till I finally got my first credit card with a much smaller department store, and I think it was only for about five hundred dollars. But. As long as you're paying on time. And you're paying your bills, and you pay it off they'll sometimes he's institutions will raise your credit line in use your credit card, and you make your payments on time. And then you pay it off. And then you you're starting to look a lot better with the credit. Bureaus? Your credit score starts going up. You're more worthy of receiving credit because there's less risk involved with giving credit to someone who has

"Credit card information, you need a car to print it on. Well, guess what you can go to Google by that to find a company that sells that stuff. So what else do you need? Well, you need you need a device. That will imprint that stolen information on that card stack stock that you just purchase guess what you can get an imprinting machine that will transfer that information onto that magnetic stripe on that car sock. You just purchase. So now, you have a full blown counterfeit clone card with someone else's identity on it. And this is nothing. New bag is been doing this forever is important that you as the fraud investigator in the fraud prevention expert, understand the potential impact of this kind of technology has on not just shoe, but other people so when you see card credit card. Fraud cases, come in Astle same kind of questions, I do sometimes too. I talked to people all the time. And they'd say their card was compromiser use that location that they never been to every heard of before in the same questions at the fraud investigators at the banks or credit card companies, do do you have your card in your possession. And sometimes they don't their purse or wallet was stolen this. And that's an easy one bad guy or any bad guy can get that card and goad basically any to any physical location and use that card, but if they still have their card in their possession in the car's been used somewhere else good chances been skim somewhere or their formation was stolen off the dark web or the internet that was posted for sale with their information to the highest bidder. But it's just good information to now. So just take some time educate yourself in. It's a little I opening when he go to the web, and you search for those type of products, how easy it is to get the right kind of quip -ment to still other people's information identity through ATM's or gas pumps. So what can you do? What can we do at least to stop this and slow it down? Again. It all starts with the weirdness and education. So whenever you go to eighteen machine wash for signs that AT may have been altered in any way. And again, it starts with that card slot. You know, does that ATM have parts that that just don't fit right? I mean are they crooked or they misplace or the kind of damage. I mean, we should really look at that. I mean, I know I do I'm always kind of paranoid about these things. But when you insert your card, especially at AT machine, for instance, that is a little bit more secluded. It's a little bit out of the way. It may be a stand alone ATM machine. That's, you know, at a sporting event or a concert is not part of a Bank or inside of a Bank wall on the outside or inside. So those would be things were make it easy for foster to install scheming device. But again, it's it may not always be that well installed, and it could be somewhat noticeable. If you look at it close enough in other words, again it. Could be crooked or sort of misplace or little off. So look look for those things in any size of potential tampering with that ATM machine. So sort of talked about this now, I would always recommend visiting when you need some money out of that ATM high-traffic or high profile ATM ATM's at are in areas that are high traffic in high lit areas, you know, in stores and lobbies and and shopping centers in the malls, you know, in and again, we're there's a lot of people around there. Definitely more safer than those standalone alone. I just folk about so member those bad guys, scammers wanna stay out of you. They wanna be invisible when they're installing these skimming devices. They don't want anybody to see that. So that's how they get away with this or able to do it usually in these secluded, standalone ATM machines or two gas stations. That are kind of secluded are easy targets was scammers to install these gaming devices. So they can collect your information. So now the. Simple one. You see the sometimes ATM's or at the gas pump. But cover your hand when you're entering your pin number. I know I do spend there's so many people around. Why wouldn't you do that? So that's a great safe safety tip there. You know, you should always do that. Even when you don't see anybody around. I mean who knows might be that little sneaky camera nearby logging in every stroke, you put on that keep pad for your pin number. You just wanna make sure you make it more difficult. So, you know, always be sure to to look around behind. You know, be be observant of your surroundings. I can't tell you. How many times I'm at the airport? Sometimes I'm at ATM machine. And there's so many people around me. I mean, I'm gonna cover my pin. My hand over the pin. Pad a look around make sure no one's trying to ease drop into what I'm trying to do, you know in personal information. So I went to secure their ability to see my pin that I'm entering into that machine. So again, be observed surroundings, you know, try to stand directly right there in front. Of the ATM, you know. And while you're using just kind of, you know, put your head on a swivel look around and make sure someone's looking over your shoulder. So this is some great tips. Remember, those things nothing to paranoid or too hard to do. But a great safeguard that you can use that you can pass along to other people if you're family, and or at work, so all this is about Ruina bad guys day. You know, what a good shat out to the United States secret service and conjunction with local law enforcement agencies here in Georgia. What a great bust putting these guys in jail for stealing your identity and still in our money. I mean, I can't tell you.

So bag is target somebody else. Hopefully, go back home to wherever they came from guys. Great shout out to everyone who's been sitting out in emails.

"fraud" Discussed on Ruin a Bad Guy's Day Radio - Fraud Prevention Podcast
"Or the credit card. Don't ask you the same kind of questions. Do you still have your card in your possession and ninety nine percent of time? You would say yes, you do. Because a bad guy. Ozzy was still your information. The max. Through the skimmer in the next question that the Bank or front investigator at the car company would probably ask you is. Where was the last place you use your credit cards? So what they're trying to do is reverse engineer the fraud and determine at what location was your card use when it left your presence sort like the restaurants in area, someone, you know, took your card you gave it to them to pay for a meal, and they left and they skimmed your credit card. So that kind of tells the fraud investigators what may be going on a particular retail or restaurant location. That were other cases that they may be working the commonalities may be related to that location. Similar to yours. This very helpful information. So really pay attention to your accounts and really pay attention. When you do go to different ATM's and gas stations very important for you to be aware. And there's some simple tips. I wanted to talk about kind of like what to look out for. So you're aware, you know, to to be cognizant and again aware of what the potential is to have your information compromise through an ATM or gas station skimming device so skimming devices permits overlay devices devices that are placed over the credit card slot. So the card slot that goes in the gas pump there or the machine so it system overlay device looks like it fits just fine. And so when you're card is inserted into that overlay device into that slot ATM or gas pump slot that device records all the credit card information on that magnetic stripe, then we talked about that before your name your full name, the credit card number expiration in this case to the skimming technology are what they call shimmying technologies were the bad guys have developed this technology, and they call it Shimane, and they come all kinds of crazy words, right? It. So it's where they install a very thin card sized device with a micro chip inside that card slot. And that device you can't see it from the outside the ATM. But when you stick your card inside that slot is still information that allows that thief decline your car, so just some more technology that's out there in the other thing too is key pad overlay. So you have to ATM machine and what they've done is. They developed a keypad. And this is an overlay over the the right regular keep. But it's a device that looks like a keep Adam placed over the actual keypad. That captures your pin when it's entered. So that's a debit card situation in this case. So we just talked about with the department of Justice indictments in these guilty pleas in this case a lot of this was involving critic not just credit cards debit cards where these guys were able to get the pin numbers to withdraw cash. So what's the other way? They do that sorta talked about it briefly before but little tiny covert cameras. Located nearby ATM or even gas pump. I guess when you're in inter in your card in his debit card. They're trying to steal your pin number. So those cameras are using conjunction at that time with that skimming or shimmying device in so that cameras placed near that location of that ATM is there to record when you punch in your pin number. So they're capturing that information. So that later they can take out. Funds from your Bank account. So a lot of times to what's interesting through the years that I've been doing this long ago. This been going on a long time. Same sort of scenario bag is can imprint credit card, MAG stripes with your stolen credit card information is that today with the evolution of technology, including bluetooth, technology and WI fi. Now, some these skimming devices are actually wifi bluetooth compatible. So someone nearby has a receiving device that an app or computer on. You know on their computer phone in there, actually, receiving transmitted information from the skimming device. So they're kinda new by which means they don't have to go back to that. Actual location to rec- retrieve that skimming device piece of equipment is just being relate to them through wifi bluetooth connection on an app that they may have pretty sophisticated when down some of these bag is these for national guys had some sort of technology like that too. So what's scary about this? If you haven't already and it's out there on the web, just Google ATM skimming device and you'll see all kinds of his come up with all kinds of different products out there where you can buy one, please don't do this don't recommend it whatsoever. Unless you wanna be part of an indictment at a future date, but they're readily available, and it's crazy. That's that's still happens. But though that's been going on for several years. So that's just one piece of the equipment for making clone cards or counterfeit credit cards with other people's stolen information. You need. Stock well Google credit card card stock for sale and you'll see card stocks credit card plastic card stock for sale in different quantities hundred packs two hundred fifty packs five hundred packs in that's for sale too. So don't steal someone's credit

"Welcome to ruin back is Dave radio podcast with fraud expert skip buyers. This is your guide to fighting fraud and chargebacks learn the best fraud prevention solutions and strategies how to enhance your fraud prevention team and held on prosecute criminals. Now, here's your host skip buyers. Hello everyone. Welcome to route a bad guys day radio. Hey, I'm Scott Meyers on I'll be your host today. Hey, welcome back, as you know. I took a few days off our in our for the holidays. And and I'm happy to be back. Boy, there's a lot of news report. And hopefully, everyone has been changing their passwords and looking after data security, and how to protect your identity against those hackers while a lot of different breaches and hacks going on it just doesn't seem to end. Does it you know, I was talking about that in that last podcast. I had about when I was recently hack, my identity stolen, and yes, really that did happen that is still ongoing. And and here's soon I'll have another podcast update you with that latest information. So that's ongoing. But if you're saying, you know, this this data breach anon- continues to occur. And I said it again a few podcasts ago, it almost seems like every single week for sure every month. You know, this new news that comes out about another data breach. And his just amazing to me. And I'm sure a lot of you would agree that this continues to happen. What are companies really doing to protect themselves from a data breach? And in turn protect you or their customers from bad guys, stealing our densities getting out of control. So something more has to be done. And we'll discuss more of that later were here in the United States. Certain legislation has been approved through the Senate actually require businesses to do a lot more and also cover agencies to do more to protect your identity. So we'll talk about that. Again, a little later another podcast has these things developed, but today pretty much breaking news just a day or two go brand new information reported by wired dot com. And some of this podcast is related to the recent wire dot com article titled astonishing seven hundred and seventy three million wreck. Kurds exposed a Munster breach kale say that again, I didn't hear that. But this amazing and astonishing seven hundred and seventy three million records exposed in a monster breach. In here goes the article, so we're dissect nece and dive in deep and see what really is all about this recent hack, and what this article is telling us so starts off. There are breaches. And there are mega breaches. And then there's equifax, but a newly revealed trove of leak data tops all of them for sheer volume, and that's seven hundred and seventy three million records evolving you unique Email addresses or over twenty one million unique passwords all recently posted to a hacking forum to data set was first reported by security researcher by the name of Troy hunt. And some of you may know who Troy is Troy maintains the I have been pawn website. Is a website, which is a way to search whether or not your Email or password has been compromised by breach from any point. So we've talked about it in a couple podcasts where I have been pawned dot com is a great website to enter your Email address to see is on the dark web in see this ever been part of the data. Great. So we talked about this before in a podcast. Great place start out to see if your information has been hacked before. So I highly recommend using this site. So the question is really the so called collection number one. So this is the collection of one is the largest Breese and hunts menagerie of research in its in this particular, one is not particularly close they say, so the hack itself if anything the above numbers belied, the real volume of the breach as they refer reflect hunt's effort to clean up the data to set an account of duplicates and to strip out usable bits of information. So in rawal form. This information comprises two point seven billion rows of Email addresses two point seven billion rows of Email addresses. That is incredible and passwords including over a billion unique combinations of Email addresses and passwords so the trove of information appear briefly on mega which is a cloud service. It persistent on what hunt referred to as a poplar hacking forum. So it sat in this folder called collection. One which contained over twelve thousand files that weighed in over eighty seven gigabytes of information, I mean, that is massive eighty seven gigabytes of information in while is difficult at this time to confirm exactly all that info came from it appears to be something of a breach of riches. It's the granddaddy of them all the mother load of bridges that to say that it claims to aggregate over two thousand leaked databases that contain password. Woes protective hashing information was cracked. So you know is a breach of breaches so to speak. So it looks like a completely random collection of sites purely used a maximize number of credentials unveiled with the hackers hunt tells wired magazine, so or wire dot com in there's no obvious patterns is just include a maximum exposure of information. So he says something sort of the to the fact that this sort of voltron breach has happened before. But never never to this scale. In fact, only is this largest breach to become public. It is second only to ya. Who's pair of incidents which affected one billion three billion users respectively in size? So fortunately, the stolen. Yahoo. Data has it surfaced quite yet. So there's a big question Mark on that. So okay. So the big question is who is affected. Who's affected by this latest data breach of seven hundred seventy three million different

"Welcome to ruin a back guys day radio podcast with fraud. Experts. Skip buyers. This is your guide to fighting fraud and chargebacks learn the best fraud prevention solutions and strategies how to enhance your fraud prevention team and held them prosecute criminals. Now, here's your host skip Myers. Hello, everyone and welcome to ruin Avar guys day radio. Hi, I'm skip Myers. And I thought we'd start this week's podcast little different than usual. This time of year. It's great to motivate and inspire, folks. And have a great opportunity to speak a lot of people at conferences and shows in at meetings all over the place, and in in what really inspires me to really inspire others in really got me thinking a lot about going into holidays and the power influence that all of you have to really impact others integrate way. And so the theme of this podcast is really to make an impact and inspire others to greatness. And really how do you do that? In a lot of you. It's within you. Now, just our ability or decision to actually bring it out of ourselves to help others in the time in need and. Spend that time with others. So that they can really see the impact of your leadership in the skills that you have to really make a difference not just at work, but in per in their personal lives, and you know, I get a lot of times in youth groups that I speak to skip. Hey, I need your advice. You know one day. I want to be a CEO. I wanna make a million dollars. I want to run a great big company. I wanna owner Ferraro and have all these great things. And always stop them something unconventional that. I do. I ask that person. I say, hey, let me see your cell phone. You have cell phone, right? And they said sure that's kind of weird what he want to see my cellphone. Well, let me see your cell phone and sure enough they plug their cell phone from their pocket, and guess what? It's the fodder in greatest new cell phone on the market in the first thing. I asked him. I said, you know, woods the last time you spent that kind of money on yourself. You're after the highest tech the hottest new cell phone. You can't wait to get it. But was the last time you really? Spent that sort of money in you invested in yourself, you have the hottest greatest cell phone. And I bet you have the hottest greatest technology on your computer. You got the latest new gaming system in all the latest games. But you know for yourself, you're probably operating on the same operational system in your self. That's that's been around for ten years wins. The last time you upgrade yourself. And you know, if you really wanna go to the next level is time to upgrade yourself in a lot of these same folks, I asked the same question to is what do you value, you value success or sleep in a lot of these folks don't even know what it means not to hit the snooze button. Win sleep is more important than being successful. When sleep is more important than helping others. You know, there's a problem there when you decide that being successful in helping others more impactful than hitting that snooze button. Then you'll make a difference. You know, there's a great story of. A book written by a famous Admiral right now any talks about in order to be successful. You know, you need to make your bed, and I think that's a great idea. But I think he stops the little short there. I think before you make your bed you need to get out of bed and quit hitting that snooze button. You need to find that why that we all talk about about what get your butt out of bed every morning, and what you wanna do into me a lot of times that's not just about fighting fraud. But what gets my butt out of bed every morning and excited about the day is serving others impacting other people helping them learn and become more knowledgeable about fighting fraud and ruin a bad guys day. That's one of my many wise that I have so really is not just about getting a routine and being disciplined about making your bed every day. But you have to get out of bed to want to do that. In what inspires you have. You thought about that? What inspires you today to get out of bed and do something different? And I hope they're in this time of year. It's something that you can do to make an impact in another person's life. And again, so often those people who want to be successful. They don't do what successful people. Do. I'm telling you right now. Successful people don't hit snooze button. They're out of bed. They're out doing something. They're making an impact every single day. There's a plan for their future in a lot of times that involves surrounding themselves with great minds and great people in making a positive influence on other people through encouragement and mentoring those things all play a great role into the success of what people have in do in. It's not all about finding the hottest ingrates new, shiny car, and the big house, and all these toys that people try to surround themselves with, you know, at the end of the day that doesn't mean anything when you're on your deathbed or at your funeral. All those cars you had their all rusted. Now, all those possessions, you have been passed away in inheritance or being given. Away. None of that matters. The one thing the biggest thing that really matters is the impact you had on others. That's you're going to be your legacy knows remember about this your success or the cars, you drove there. Oh, remember how you encourage people?
