Cyber criminals across the globe are looking to steal your cell phone number! Unfortunately, cell phone carriers aren’t doing enough when it comes to security allowing cyber criminals to exploit carrier loopholes and attack their favorite targets:
- High-Net Worth Individuals
- Anyone conducting financial transactions on a mobile device
Once cyber criminals have your cell phone number, they’ll purchase your personal information and execute a SIM swap scam (also known as a port-out scam, SIM splitting, and simjacking, SIM swapping).
This type of attack leverages a mobile phone carrier’s ability to port a telephone number to a device containing a different Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). Typically, this occurs when a customer has lost their phone, had their phone stolen, or is switching service to a new phone. Victims of SIM Swap scams can end up losing their entire life savings, reputation & careers as a victim of this unique attack.
