My wife accidently logged onto an email link to Standard Bank to update her banking details as requested. Within 3 hours all the following happened. There were 15 beneficiaries created, all Standard Bank accounts on my account without a onetime password. There was R81 600.00 transferred to these 15 Standard Bank accounts. All the money was withdrawn from these 15 Standard bank accounts within 5 minutes and the accounts were closed and reported as untraceable within Standard Bank. When my wife went to Standard Bank within 3 hours of the fraud, they closed my account to prevent any further fraud. Three days later Standard Bank reported to me that they are sorry they cannot get my money back. This sounds like fraud within Standard Bank and worth investigating. It looks like the thieves are operating within Standard Bank.
