Hacker illegally invades section of the official Red Cross website and tampers with solicited donation accounts
Verified by the Ministry of Public Security, a section of the official Red Cross website has been illegally hacked. According to the report, criminal elements gained access to the section of the website that held the special accounts for earthquake disaster relief donations.
An individual named Li Bujiu, had opened four fraudulent bank accounts to steal the funding.
The Ningbo Bank released a statement warning all citizens to be verify account numbers when making donations. The bank suggested using CCTV, TV, and newspapers as references to verify the accounts.
The falsified accounts were listed as follows:
Opened by Li Yaqiong at the Henan, bank: Agriculture Bank of China, ACCT #: 6228482080560018616;
Opened by Li Bujiu at the Commerce bank, ACCT #: 6222002201101753792;
Opened by Li Bujiu at the Agricultural bank, ACCT #: 6228480150082864813;
Opened by Li Bujiu at the Construction bank, ACCT #: 6227003526450024660;
Opened by Li Bujiu at the Postal Savings Bank, ACCT #: 6221886400011381263;
Opened by Lin Yumin at the Agricultural bank, ACCT#: 9559980150169780312
I think it was Eddie Murphy who once said, “The only reason you would want to do something like this is if you wanted to go to straight to hell and not wait in line!”
