Groningen detained for looting accounts via cyber crime

The police have arrested a man from Groningen who is suspected of multiple crimes through cyber crime, including phishing.

The suspect (21) came forward in an investigation into the fraud of an entrepreneur from the Northern Netherlands, who lost 1.1 million euros in an evening after clicking a wrong link in a text message. According to the police, it is the largest case of its kind to date.

The suspect was caught red-handed. When the police entered his place to stay, officers found a laptop running all kinds of digital scams, RTV Noord writes.

SMS bomb

According to the police, the man was “extremely agile with the full arsenal of digital scams, from a payment link fraud to sending fake reminders via a so-called SMS bomb.” With such an SMS bomb, a single message can be sent to hundreds of recipients at once.

The Groninger is not the first suspect arrested in this investigation. Police units across the country have a face book of suspects who were filmed pinning the loot. This regularly leads to suspect identifications, which are subsequently apprehended.
