Warning -- McDonalds cyber scam

Discussion in 'Australia' started by littlejim, Oct 9, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The police in Perth, Western Australia, today announced partial details of an ongoing scam on people using credit cards at McDonalds outlets. The attacks are reported to have only occurred in Perth as far as gathering information is concerned, i.e. card numbers and PIN details.


    However around 450,000 Ausdollars have been reported to have been stolen from the affected bank accounts via ATMs located in various countries around the world.


    It's still unclear as to whether the terminals in the different outlets were physically attacked to allow them to be used as skimmers, or whether the attack was further up the data transmission chain.
