Accounts hacked: 1,600 customers are victims of payback fraudsters |  Regional

Bamberg (Bayern) – Gigantic payback scam in southern Germany. Three men and two women from Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg have been charged by the Bamberg Public Prosecutor’s Office with commercial computer fraud.

They are said to have cheated for months with so-called payback points and thus stole almost 90,000 euros: they are the main perpetrators Investigator a married couple from the Baden-Württemberg Enzkreis and her 27-year-old son from the Rastatt district are targeted.

The three are said to have first obtained access data for a large number of hacked Payback accounts on the Darknet and then used voucher cards in stores to pay out the equivalent of the Payback points to bank accounts set up specifically for this purpose.

Your bad luck: Video footage shows the fraudsters in many stores using voucher cards to get the money.

The total amount of the alleged fraud between July 2020 and January 2021 with more than 1,600 victims is around 78,400 euros. The 27-year-old is also said to have obtained an amount of more than 12,000 euros in more than 100 other cases.

The young man’s 28-year-old stepsister and her 28-year-old husband from the Berchtesgadener Land district (Bayern) are said to have provided bank accounts for the fraud. You are therefore charged with aiding and abetting.

The 27-year-old son was ordered into custody. The man, who has been convicted several times, is currently in custody for another matter. The defendants remain silent about the allegations.
