A suspected telephone hacker who was arrested by operatives of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ladipo, Lagos, has shockingly revealed that he can gain access into any bank account through the victim’s sim card
According to Vanguardngr, 31-year-old suspect, Dare Oladimeji, is a Senior Secondary School Certificate holder. He is also a footballer and just returned from Dubai, having concluded his two years contract with ALAIN FC.
He was tracked to Idi-Oro area of Lagos, during investigation into the withdrawal of N200,000 from a victim’s account. Asked if he had any connivance with bank staff, he said “No,” adding that he got the necessary details from Google.
His words: “I work on sim cards to get money. When I lay my hands on any sim card, I would slot it into any small phone that is not android. When that is done, I would press a code which brings out the list of banks the owner of the sim uses.
For example, if the person is using GTB, I will proceed with the normal code of *37*100#. If the person has money , we would use it to buy recharge card to confirm how much the owner has, through the debit alert that would pop in to reveal the balance.
Thereafter, we would transfer the money into donors accounts, from where we would withdraw the money”.
Asked what happens if phone is locked, he said, “Locking of phones with password does not stop me from hacking into any account, as long as I can lay my hands on the sim card.
All I need to do is to remove the sim and slot it into a small phone. The only thing that can prevent me from hacking into account through phone, is when the SIM card itself is locked.
But most people don’t lock their sim cards, they only lock their phones. You can only beat my likes to the game if you lock your sim card.
When I came back from Dubai in 2016, I brought N7 million , out of which I gave one Mr Shola N5 million for a genuine business with NUPENG. Unfortunately, the man died. So I decided to venture into this business which is a small version of yahoo yahoo because I didn’t want to go into robbery.“
