Hacked POS machines?Just looking to address the elephant in the room but exactly how did the perps get pins for the credit cards to draw cash from an ATM? Fraudulent transactions are one thing but to draw cash you require a pin or can one encode a card and jippo the encoding to have a custom pin.
Well if they can coordinate so many people so withdraw at the ATMs then they can probably coordinate people in a SA bank as well.Just looking to address the elephant in the room but exactly how did the perps get pins for the credit cards to draw cash from an ATM?

This is Japan, so there is a little shop with an ATM every 10 steps that you give.who the hell let the person in front of them do 140 withdrawals? imagine being that guy.
this is not a mickey mouse crime. the co-ordination at play is staggering. again wondering why nothing in our news. is the propaganda machine so efficient? must be the guptas retaliation against being kicked out of the banking system here.

How do banks honour a withdrawl "using a small number of fictitious cards" without checking the balance of those cards? Surely fictitious cards don't have credit?Fake cards. No impact to customers.
