Information The RBS WorldPay hit is viewed by many as the most sophisticated and well organized cyberfraud operation ever conducted. In 2008 a group of hackers penetrated the network defenses of the US-based financial institution and artificially inflated the limits of 44 re-loadable payroll cards. Then during the course of only twelve hours cloned copies of the compromised cards were used to withdraw an estimated $9 million from more than 2,100 ATMs located in 280 different cities around the world. The fraudulent withdrawals were performed by money mules, who kept between 30 and 50 percent of the funds for themselves.
