Turkey’s Sabah newspaper published a scandal story, claiming that bureaucrats working high up in the banking sector in Ankara have been passing on classified information on citizens for money. This information has winded up in the hands of pirate organizations and exploited for criminal purposes.
The 8-month long investigation has revealed that mobile phone numbers, identity numbers, credit card details, health insurance details and trade secrets have been leaked.
Banks involved in the scandal have distanced themselves of any responsibility and have disowned the suspects.
One suspect is believed to have sent an SMS message boasting of his newfound wealth to a friend after selling private details over the internet to a third-party client. So far, four have been arrested.Last Mod: 13 Kasım 2013, 15:37
