Urgent: Checking and savings account information stolen from major banks
Kommando.com ^ | 8-27-14 | Kim Kommando

Posted on 08/27/2014 7:30:24 PM PDT by TurboZamboni

Word has leaked that JPMorgan Chase and possibly four other banks have been hacked. Details are scarce at this point, but the FBI and other government agencies are involved in the investigation.

The hack allegedly took place earlier in August and hackers have siphoned off huge amounts of sensitive data from Chase, including checking and savings account information.

Even more concerning, sources say that the attack goes "far beyond the capabilities of ordinary hackers." Given the timing, some security experts are speculating it was the work of high-level Russian hackers.

According to an inside source, there has been no increase in fraud at JPMorgan Chase since the hack. However, it doesn't change the fact that if you're a Chase customer your most sensitive financial information may now be in the hands of criminals.

“...the FBI and other government agencies are involved in the investigation.”

So, what you’re saying is that we’re basically focked and pretty much on our own?

I thought as much...

JPMorgan Chase could use the marketing slogan “We aren’t quite as nasty as Bank of America.” I wonder who the other four are . . .

Neither do I, but that didn't stop hackers from recently stealing my information (I believe from hospital records) and opening accounts in my name. Trying to resolve the problem now...

That would be a great way for the feds and the banks to explain a monetary collapse. “We are experiencing an economic cyber attack. Russia did it. Let’s go to war”.

The Community Health System, whose 4.5 million patient records were hacked, had not fixed longstanding security holes. A security expert said there were known bots and blacklists, some six years old. He said, “These infections are a strong indicator that systems have gone unpatched for years - a common theme in the health care industry. If an advanced nation-state penetrated this network, they probably didn’t have to work very hard to gain a foothold.” (Politico Pro , Aug 21, 2014)

No, they apply for 2nd mortgages on homes, using your information and credit to secure the loan. And then of course they never repay it, and the bank tries to foreclose on the home that the 2nd was taken out on, and when they find out that that person has no idea about any loan, they then go after you for repayment of the loan.

Eventually, the bank gives up, and then sells the paper to predators who then call your parents, your wife's parents, your brother, your sister, cousins, your boss, etc, who demand repayment, falsely claim lawsuits have been filed, or that papers are going to be served, etc.

I have been dealing with this for nearly 15 years now. Mostly because a local college decided to use SSNs as student ID numbers and PUBLISH a directory listing those numbers. It was eye opening to find out that I had sixteen different accounts open with SoCal Edison, that I had taken 2nds out on four different homes in two counties, and I don't even want to imagine how much unsecured credit was taken out; the credit report companies block you from finding out such information if you don't certify the right addresses.

Very interesting. Last week we discovered a fraudulent charge on a credit card that we never use - a Chase credit card. Since the card hadn’t been used, we assumed the breach had to be at Chase. Was wondering when it would come out - and here it is!

The problem must be even bigger than those 4.5 million records. None of the hospitals I went to were affiliated with CHS.

Oh, no, I just found out a week ago that my information was hacked along with many, many other people's, and the thieves have been busy opening multiple accounts in my name. I'm guessing this problem will never be resolved now... will it?

The quickest way to destroy a financial system, in this case our electronic system, is to destroy any trust or faith that the depositors and users have in the system. This electronic warfare on our financial institutions could have been perpetrated by foreign hackers, possibly backed by a doreign government, or, it could have come from within our own government. Trust, once lost, is seldom regained.

Directory was published yearly, and the practice stopped in the 90's, typical court approved settlement, money for lawyers, free life lock for victims, does nothing to stop those who buy debt paper that is past any legal recourse who use fake caller ids to harras people into paying for debt they don't owe.

Does nothing.

So long as you get it handled now, you should be fine. I found out about most of these bogus accounts long after the companies involved sold off the bad debt.

Mine and my husband’s info was stolen because of this. I’m trying to figure out what to do about it. It’s a HIPAA violation for sure. And the hospital is responsible. Supposed to be offering us identity theft protection.

Supposedly our health info wasn’t accessed. I don’t believe that for a second.

Thinking of contacting an attorney.

Or to be more specific, the hackers may have been working for the Russian FSB (the successor to the KGB) but done in a way there is plausible deniability.

This article is pure, unadulterated BS.

The tipoff is the article’s conclusion:

“I protect my checking and savings account information from fraud with my advertiser LifeLock”

Basically, this article is nothing more than an alarmist infomercial for “Lifelock”.
