The police are investigating a case of fraud (smishing)토토사이트 in which a self-employed person in Busan clicked a link included in a text message and lost nearly 400 million won.
According to victim A and the police on the 26th, around 5:35 a.m. on the 22nd, Mr. A saw a text message on his mobile phone asking for a correction saying that the delivery address was wrong and clicked the link to the Internet address (URL). Mr. A’s cell phone, which had no problems right after, suddenly stopped working on the afternoon of the 24th, and from about 4:28 pm on the same day to 1 am the next day, 383 million won was withdrawn through smart banking on 29 occasions.
The next day, the 25th, at 9 am, Mr. A, who was contacted by the bank, belatedly realized that his money had been withdrawn from his bank account and reported it to the Sasang Police Station in Busan. He also ordered the bank to freeze the payment of his account.
Mr. A argued, “Account transfer is possible only with a bank one-time password (OTP), but I don’t know how the money escaped.”
The police launched an investigation based on Mr. A’s statement.
