The Dutch police has arrested 5 males which are suspected of sending fake invoices to unaware internet users. The fake invoices claimed that the receiver had to pay an specific amount of money to the bank – if you did not want to pay the money, you would be redirected to an external website, which would demand personal information via an survey.
The personal information which was collected via the survey would then allow the cyber criminals to withdraw money from the victims credit.
The police found credit cards, driving licenses, identity cards and bank cards at the locations where the cybercriminals were located.
The cyber criminals had stolen 40000 euro in total.
