Police warn of SIM-swapping scam after three incidents in Edmonton

Police warn of SIM-swapping scam after three incidents in Edmonton ‘It might just be totally random, it might not be targeted — it’s opportunity’ Tricia Kindleman · CBC News · Posted: Mar 26, 2019 9:59 PM MT | Last Updated: March 26 Edmonton police say they have had three reports of SIM swapping but believe there could be more people who have fallen victim to this sort of crime. (Topperest/Shutterstock) 0 comments As Fraud Prevention Month draws to a close, Edmonton police are warning of a new scam that recently popped up in the city: SIM swapping. SIM cards, also known as subscriber identification modules, are used by cellphone carriers to store information on servers about a subscriber’s identity. The SIM card switch can be done remotely and doesn’t require the physical phone that’s being targeted. Fraudsters will often use the cellphone provider’s online chat options or a phone call to make the switch but they require some level of personal information for the person targeted. This data can be collected with malware, phishing attacks or even through social media, police said. A lot of times the scammers may even cold call, said Det. Linda Herczeg with the economic crimes section. “They randomly select a number and if someone answered the phone they might say, ‘Hi, is Julie there?’ ‘Oh no, this isn’t Julie, this is Anita,’” Herczeg said. “So they’ve got a number and they’ve got a name. Then they just start digging for information. It might just be totally random, it might not be targeted — it’s opportunity.” Because the fraudsters are using online chat options police were unable to track where the activity originated. When the SIM card is swapped the victim’s phone will still be usable, especially if it is connected to wifi, but phone calls can’t be made or received. Once the phone is reset it may begin to make calls again but the fraudster could now have access to the new SIM card and all the information on it. Edmonton Police Service member Detective Linda Herczeg with the economic crimes sections talks about SIM swapping during the final week of Fraud Prevention Month. March 26, 2019. (Tricia Kindleman/CBC) The small chips can store a lot of information, Herczeg said. “With the SIM card, that data is stored in a server in a warehouse somewhere. So the information that goes on to the SIM card is text messages, a lot of service providers are going away from [that].” Herczeg said, “But we do know that all of your contact information, phone contact, addresses, all of your app information is held on the SIM card.” Edmonton police shared the story of a woman named Patricia Visser who had her bank account drained. Her daughter noticed money missing from her account when she called her mother using WhatsApp to find out what was going on. Visser then reached out to her bank but her phone wouldn’t connect the call until after she restarted it. Her bank was able to reverse a transfer once she got in touch with them and put a stop to the …

LHeureux explains that long distance calls and SMS need to be directed towards eligible phone numbers in China, Hong Kong, and Macau, where customers need to dial each of the country’s code—namely +86 for China, +853 for Hong Kong, and +853 for Macau—to successfully activate the China long distance saver add-on.

All other subscribers on the account are rated as per their plans and features.” Meanwhile, LHeureux also notes that when roaming in China, calls made to phone numbers outside Canada are not included, and are billed at standard roaming and long distance rates. He says that standard data overage rates also apply when a customer goes over their monthly data limit in Canada or the US. “While extra taxes, standard data, and data overage rates apply, customers can still be covered by Telus Easy Roam when travelling internationally, including the US.” A census in 2016 showed that Chinese immigrants are the second largest foreign-born group in Canada, and the latest data on Wikipedia showed that around 300,000 Canadians are living, studying, or working in China.

Fantastic Article on Apple Airpods Check this out!!

Fantastic Article on Apple Airpods Check this out!! Came across this article online  titled “Your AirPods Will Die Soon” In this article they talk about the Apple Airpods and the battery life.  Basically stating that if you were an early adopter of this Airpods that your probably starting to experience short lifespans between charges.  This is normal apparently.  This is exactly what I am experiencing with mine.  That’s OK with me because I was going to get the new ones when they release later this month anyways!  Can’t live without them!  Read the article below! Technology Your AirPods Will Die Soon The surprisingly short life of new electronic devices Alana Semuels Mar 21, 2019 Tim Cook onstage at an Apple event in 2016Beck Diefenbach / Reuters Share Tweet Email Updated on March 22 at 9:06 p.m. ET.Two years ago, Desmond Hughes heard so many of his favorite podcasters extolling AirPods, Apple’s tiny, futuristic $170 wireless headphones, that he decided they were worth the splurge. He quickly became a convert. Hughes is still listening to podcasters talk about their AirPods, but now they’re complaining. The battery can no longer hold a charge, they say, rendering them functionally useless. Apple bloggers agree: “AirPods are starting to show their age for early adopters,” Zac Hall, an editor at 9to5Mac, wrote in a post in January, detailing how he frequently hears a low-battery warning in his AirPods now. Earlier this month, Apple Insider tested a pair of AirPods purchased in 2016 against a pair from 2018, and found that the older pair died after two hours and 16 minutes. “That’s less than half the stated battery life for a new pair,” the writer William Gallagher concluded. Hughes, who is 35 and lives in Newport News, Virginia, has noticed a similar thing about his own set: At first, their charge lasted five hours, but now they sometimes last only half an hour. He frequently listens to one while charging the other—not optimal conditions for expensive headphones. He’s now gearing up to plunk down more money on another pair. “I just wish they would increase the battery life,” he told me. (On Wednesday, Apple announced it would soon release a new generation of AirPods, but did not say whether the devices would have longer lives. The lithium-ion batteries that power AirPods are everywhere. One industry report forecast that sales would grow to $109.72 billion by 2026, from $36.2 billion in 2018. They charge faster, last longer, and pack more power into a small space than other types of batteries do. But they die faster, too, often after just a few years, because every time you charge them, they degrade a little. They can also catch fire or explode if they become damaged, so technology companies make them difficult, if not impossible, for consumers to replace themselves. The result: A lot of barely chargeable AirPods and wireless mice and Bluetooth speakers are ending up in the trash as consumers go through products—even expensive ones—faster than ever.Hughes told …
