Four suspects were detained in connection with the suspected “hacking” that robbed certain BDO Unibank Inc. clients accounts in December.
According to Vic Lorenzo, the NBI Cybercrime Division’s chief, “Ang involvement nila is to synchronize ‘yong movement ng members ng group. Ino-open nila ang account, sila ang nagpapa-falsify ng mga dokumento tapos ‘yong mga downloaded amounts o downloaded cash, sila ang nagko-consolidate from different downloaders at sila rin ang nagbibigay ng payoff,”.
However, two Nigerian suspects were seized in separate operations in Pasig City and Manila. One of them is accused to have developed a computer software used in hacking.
Meanwhile, BDO has yet to issue a comment on this incidence. The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) is gathering evidence against the four before launching the case.
