日本的NTT Docomo因诈骗而暂停电子货币服务

2020-9-10 12:13

 

东京,9月9日(新华社)——在过去一周发生了一系列与无现金支付有关的欺诈案件后,日本NTT Docomo公司的官员周三表示,该公司已经暂停了客户将其银行账户与电子货币服务连接的服务。


据当地媒体报道,截至周三晚间,日本已有10家地区性银行报告了潜在的欺诈性现金交易,其中NTT Docomo表示,它们与17家地区性银行以及日本邮政银行(Japan Post Bank)的业务将被暂停。


NTT Docomo表示,在提取现金之前,为了确保资金不会被欺诈手段获取,该公司将考虑如何改进和增强其身份确认协议。


一旦用户将他们的账户连接起来,NTT Docomo的服务就会为客户提供许多功能,比如账户间转账和购物付款。


但该公司的服务遭到了诈骗分子的侵犯,他们利用偷来的银行账号和密码进入与NTT Docomo的货币服务相关的账户,并将资金转移到其他移动账户。


据知情人士透露,尽管电子货币的用户可以与日本许多不同的银行进行连接,但每家银行的识别协议都不一样。


他们补充说,在某些情况下,电子货币和类似应用程序的用户只需要提供一个电子邮件地址来确认他们的身份。


欺诈者可能使用钓鱼邮件获取其他必要的登录信息,因为银行自己已经表示,他们的系统没有受到威胁,而且最近被窃取的敏感数据和资金的数量仍不清楚。


当地媒体周三报道称,2019年电子货币诈骗造成的经济损失总计达2400万美元,是前一年的五倍多。


与此同时,日本警察厅表示,2019年,从网上账户非法取款的案件总数为1872起。

 

TOKYO, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Following a series of fraud cases connected to cashless payments in the past week, Japan's NTT Docomo Inc. has suspended services allowing customers to connect their bank accounts with its e-money services, officials said Wednesday.

According to local media, as of Wednesday evening, 10 regional banks in Japan had reported potential fraudulent cash transactions, with NTT Docomo saying that their service with 17 regional banks and Japan Post Bank will be suspended.

Before cash withdrawals are made, in a bid to ensure that money is not being accessed using fraudulent means, NTT Docomo sad it will consider how to improve and enhance its identification confirmation protocols.

Once users have linked their accounts, NTT Docomo's service offers a number of functions to customers such as transferring money between accounts and paying for shopping.

But its services have fallen foul to fraudsters using stolen bank account numbers and passwords to access accounts linked to NTT Docomo's money service and transfer funds to other mobile accounts.

Although users of e-money can connect with a number of different banks in Japan, the identification protocols differ from bank to bank, sources close to the matter said.

In some instances, users of e-money and similar applications are only required to provide an email address to confirm their identification, they added.

The fraudsters may have used phishing emails to access other necessary login information, as the banks themselves have said their systems have not been compromised and the amount of sensitive data and funds stolen recently still remains unclear.

Local media reported Wednesday that financial losses from e-money fraud in 2019 totaled in the region of 24 million U.S. dollars, more than five times more than the previous year.

The National Police Agency, meanwhile, said that cases of illicit withdrawals from online accounts totaled 1,872 cases in 2019.
