Well, nearly every bank in the world is looking pretty stupid right now as they teeter on the brink of being nationalized, so maybe the saying has some truth to it. Wink

I so wish this statement were true... Sad


The story doesn't say how much Citi actually sent BEFORE verifying that the people who "authorized" the transfers were actually authorizing the transfers. Evil or Very Mad

It looks like some of these institurions need to hire members of Eater to keep their - our money safe. Shocked

I spent my whole working life in a bank and most of that in international finance, and yes I did bemoan that banks had become gambling casinos masquerading as banks, and most proper banking people have long since left.

There's no excuse for what that bank allowed, though I would strongly suspect some inside connivance from Ethiopia, as most people are unaware of the existence of such accounts, and only very few know how they operate, signatures and account numbers. The fact is that if you can't trust your customer - you get rid of the account - no matter who - whether they are fraudsters or just plain lax over security.

You don't get a bonus for doing the simple things right, but if you don't do the simple things right, the whole boat sinks.

Accepting written instructions from an international bank is so abysmally stupid as to defy credibility. Without giving away secrets, it is standard procedure in most banks to operate floor limits to verify transactions within certain parameters, and a written payment instruction from another bank to an individual/company for any amount would seem to be common sense - but common sense and banking parted company long ago.

Banks don't normally issue written payment instructions - not for 20 years, and even if Ethiopia doesn't have SWIFT, though I suspect they do, they'll have telex, and complex authentication systems will be in place to verify them.

One constituent is believed to have replied to the email, but - in what may be a blow to Mr Straw's self esteem - nobody offered any money.

In the understatement of the year, the reporter wrote:
Perhaps unwisely, somebody in Mr Straw's office fell for it [the phish] and sent a reply last Thursday.


I am glad that it is not just officials in the USA that fall for such things. I believe that most of life must be greeted with a healthy dose of skepticism. Of course, I am...

@Cachuma, There was a similar one a bit further down, from someone in his own constituency. Very Happy

Edit: Here it is, and another nice one too:

Quote:
What made this scam entirely improbable is the idea that Mr Straw would only be asking for $3,000 to pay for his hotel and flight home. By the time you factor in 5 star hotels and first class air tickets, plus chauffeur driven cars which our MPs are used to, $30,000 would be closer to the mark.

Miriam, Bristol,

I would pay £3000.00 to get rid of him!! No one in their right mind would pay to get him back.

Andy S, Blackburn,
