Bank of America will never ask you to provide your Social Security number, ATM or debit card PIN or any other sensitive information in response to an email. One recent and topical case regarding credit-card fraud was the recent Target security breach where millions of credit and debit cards accounts were hacked and individual’s sensitive cards information are currently being sold on the black market.

GALLAGHER used that account to tout certain over-the-counter penny stocks and to disseminate false and misleading information about his trading in those stocks in order to induce his followers to purchase those stocks and drive up their prices.
In September 2019, GALLAGHER created a Twitter account using the alias “Alex DeLarge,” a character from the Anthony Burgess novel A Clockwork Orange and the Stanley Kubrick film of the same name (the “DeLarge Twitter Account”). The criminal can then insert that card into any other device, giving the thief the ability to make calls and receive texts using your phone number.

Fraudulent porting happens when a fraudster gains access to the victim’s mobile account information, often by phishing the account password, to port the victim’s number to a new account at a new carrier. SIM swap fraud happens when a criminal contacts your cell phone provider. Convinces it to assign your phone number to a new SIM card. Or maybe you’ve received a text from your carrier stating that your phone number has been transferred to a new SIM card. All accounts have this protection and a customer’s number cannot be ported without verification of that PIN. Merchant accounts provide an immediate dose of convenience for your customers because they allow you to process credit and debit cards for payments. To vend on credit, merchants have to uphold business accounts to simplify the handling of payments through credit cards.
