Scammers produce fake deposit slips for online sellers
Recent incidents pointed to a group of online scammers producing fake BDO deposit slips to show to online sellers in order to process orders.
The faked deposit transaction slips were produced using the original paper (which customers are given after making a deposit) and printed with the validation machines. It is unknown where or how the validation machines were acquired by the scammers.
To the untrained eye, the deposit slips really looked like the original ones. The scammers then use these as proof of payment for orders they’ve made from online stores.
One online seller we talked to has coordinated with BDO which admitted the scam being perpetrated repeatedly by an unknown group.
BDO has acted on this incident and have changed the type of paper they used for the transaction slips.
