Europol busts gang responsible for stealing millions by phishing

06/21/2022

A cross-border operation, supported by Europol and involving Belgian and Dutch police, has resulted in the dismantling of a cybercriminal group involved in phishing, fraud, scams and money laundering.

The criminal group allegedly contacted victims via email, text message and fraudulent phishing mobile messaging applications leading to a fake banking website. Investigation leads suggest that the cybercriminal network has managed to steal several million euros from its victims through this fraudulent activity.
