I understand phishing and key logging and ways to get an person's details. But what i don't understand is how they get away with the stealing?
I nick a few dollars from someone's bank account. Simply transfer it into my account. But the Police would know it's me since it's gone to my account. Caught red handed.
Same deal. Only the money goes into a spoof bank account. Now how do I set that up since I need my passport, electric bill, a reference and what I had for breakfast as ID before I can set up the account. Can't be done?
I simply use the stolen account details to buy good on-line. 100" TV lands at my place. A few days later the Police arrive too as they have my address from the purchase.
Same deal. Only I have a place I just use for deliveries. Again, how do I set that up and really! - I'd need to establish a different delivery address for my ongoing theft.
I can see there being some controversy with me asking this question, but it just confounds me how people can establish a spoof identity/location and become invisible.
I think I'd fail MI5 trials.
