How account flashing is done
Scammers rely on hacking tools to achieve this feat. There are many programs they use. One of the most popular tools used in Nigeria is a software called Cardro Pro V6.
Cardro Pro V6 is very powerful. It uses the victim’s phone number to generate his BVN(Bank Verification Number). Like other tools, it injects a command into the victim’s bank server that allows it to accept the amount in the ledger and generate alert.
When the bank tries to verify the source of the transaction and is not able to, it will reject the transaction in 24hours.
How to protect yourself
1. Don’t give the phone number linked to your account to any stranger that wants to do transfer to you. If possible, separate your operational phone number from the one linked to your account.
2. If possible, reconfirm transactions after 24hours before releasing goods especially to strangers.
