Forgery bank statements can be purchased for $6 on Dark Web

Cyber criminals are now selling Commonwealth Bank & Wespac forged documents on the dark web between $6 and $24, with payments being made with untraceable “bitcoin”.

Promising world wide delivery within 24 hours, the documents are a means of accessing the nation’s financial services and banking systems, inclusive of the lucrative $2 trillion of superannuation assets.

Buyers can get identical replicas of super, bank, or credit card statements which they can then use to set up stolen identities – accessing bank accounts for personal loans, mortgages, credit cards, super funds, police checks, renting an apartment, or identification in the workplace.
