Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way

NSW Police have arrested a man they allege is a homegrown scammer who sent out millions of fake text messages from his lounge.

Officers arrested a 39-year-old man inside a suburban home in Sydney’s southwest over allegedly sending 17 million fake text messages to trick unsuspecting Australians.

Inside the home police seized an EFTPOS machine, two black boxes known as SIM boxes, and dozens of SIM cards.

The black boxes allegedly can hold over 250 active SIM cards and send out 150,000 messages a day.

In this case, police allege the scammer was posing as companies including Australia Post and LinkT.

“They will send out links from common Australian businesses such as Australia Post or banks and the idea is to instil a sense of urgency in clicking the link or providing information,” former digital forensic police officer Michael Heikkilae told A Current Affair.

Police allege the simple set-up has potentially cost Australians millions of dollars.
