CONFESSION OF A SUSPECT-
“I do what we call wire-wire, wire-wire is also called SIM transaction, so sim transaction is local wire”.
“Any alert SIM I come across, with any bank, I can work on it and do transactions on it, I can withdraw, recharge and get the loan on it”.
Interrogator – “Explain to me now, how you do it?”
Suspect – “If I’m given an alert SIM, I’ll press *425*100#, this will show the bank the owner of the SIM is using”
“If the Bank is Access Bank, then I’ll dial *901*00#, and it will show the account balance of the person, if I want to reset the PIN, it will ask for the account number of the person and Date of birth”.
Interrogator – “How will you know the account number and Date of birth of the person?”
Suspect – “The account number, some do save it on their contacts and some don’t, so if I see the account number on the contact, I will use the person’s BVN to bring out all their details”.
Interrogator – “How will you get someone’s details through their BVN?”
Suspect – “I’ll dial *565*0#, so when all the details are revealed, I’ll now register with the Bank of the person involved and I can carry out my transfers”.
Interrogator – “So you will change the PIN of the person right?”
Suspect – “Yes I’ll change the person’s PIN, I’ll input the account number and Date of birth, then it will prompt me to create a PIN, then that’s the PIN I’ll be using to do the transfer”.
Interrogator – “What if there’s no money in the account?”
Suspect – “If it’s a salary account, when there’s no money in the account, I can use it to collect a loan”.
Interrogator – “What’s the maximum amount of loan you can borrow?”
Suspect – “There are some that are 15,000, some 20,000 and others 5,000 Naira loans”
Interrogator – “Can you operate with any other SIM apart from SIM used in receiving Bank alerts?”
Suspect – “No, it’s only SIM used in receiving alerts” “No matter how hard the code maybe I’ll break it if it’s used to receive alerts”… “I’ve done some demonstration here too”.
Interrogator – “So if I give you my SIM used in receiving bank alerts now, you can do anything with it?”
Suspect – “Yes, I can do any transaction with it”.
Interrogator – “Where will you transfer the money to?”
Suspect – “I do open no trace account” “I’ll transfer it to that account” “We call it AZA”
Interrogator – “How do you open such accounts and how can you transfer into such accounts?”
Suspect – “I can use anyone’s BVN to create another account that will be a “no trace account” “I can transfer into another person’s account and it’s the person that will be sought after, not me”.
