Deposit fraudulently withdrawn through the electronic payment service “docomo Account” September 8, 18:28
Through NTT DOCOMO’s electronic payment service “docomo Account”, it was found that the banker’s deposit was illegally withdrawn by someone. It has spread to at least three regional banks, including the 77 Bank, which has its head office in Sendai City, and Toho Bank, which has its head office in Fukushima City, and NTT DOCOMO is responding by suspending the new registration of accounts at these banks.
DOCOMO Account is NTT DOCOMO’s electronic payment service that allows you to shop and transfer money on the Internet with your smartphone by registering and depositing a bank account.
According to NTT DOCOMO and the Bank, it has been confirmed that the deposit was illegally withdrawn to a third party through a docomo account by the 77 Bank, the Bank of China, which has its head office in Okayama City, and Toho Bank.
In addition, Ogaki Kyoruchi Bank, which has its head office in Gifu Prefecture, has confirmed a suspected fraudulent drawer and is conducting an investigation.
In both cases, it is believed that someone used the account number of the fraudulently stolen bank and the PIN number of the cash card to open a docomo account pretending to be a depositor and withdraw the deposit by transferring money from the bank account to the docomo account.
Each bank is u.sorry to ask users to make sure they don’t know what to do.
NTT DOCOMO has also suspended the new registration of each bank’s account into the docomo account and is investigating the number of withdrawn accounts and the amount of damage.
NTT DOCOMO said, “This is an unauthorized use of the PIN number of a fraudulently obtained cash card and is not an unauthorized access to our system and information was obtained. We have taken various security measures so far, but we will strive to further strengthen them.”
