A Nigerian medical doctor, Michael Williams, has revealed how easy it is to hack into the systems of Nigerian banks.
Williams who was arrested by the Lagos state police command described hacking the banking system and including government-owned account as the easiest thing to do.
According to Vanguard, the 28-year old medical doctor turned international cyber criminal has been on the police wanted list for sometime.
Mentioning Hollywood actor, John Travolta, as one of his prey, Williams said the actor's account is being monitored through a programmed device, where cash running into millions of US dollars were diverted weekly.
The police also discovered that Williams created credit cards of deceased foreigners through cyber Ghost 12.
He said whenever the credit cards mature, it would be funded through a Swiss account and transactions would be done by genuine account owners. He said the transfer is done through Swiss accounts and would be manipulated by the suspect and wired to his contrived credit card.
Speaking on the arrest, the Lagos commissioner of police, Imohimi Edgal, said the suspect buys posh cars and sends fake alerts to bank account owners.
The police said Williams bought a Porshe car worth N28 million from a Lagos car dealer, Abidogun Adewale, in March.
The suspect, however, sent the car dealer a fake bank alert before making away with the car.
Adewale was however, shocked after he discovered that no money was paid in by the suspect, who revealed he used HTTPtunnel.com to send such fake alert.
He disclosed that during such payment, the amount would appear on the seller’s account at that moment, even if he visited his bank to confirm the payment, adding that it would disappear after one hour.
Three of the vehicles he bought through such process were traced to Asaba, Delta and Imo states. The number plates on the three vehicles read HRM OGUEZI 1, II and III, respectively.
NAIJ.com earlier reported that confirmed the arrest of five of its serving officers over the alleged robbery attempt on one Immanuel James at the Ago-Palace way area of Okota, a suburb of the state.
