Cybercriminals are grooming schoolkids to help steal savings from victims’ bank account

Call them scammers, hackers, conmen, internet predators, online identity thieves, internet fraudsters, cybercriminals, or cyber crooks they all work towards achieving a common goal – get access to others’ personal data.

Cybercriminals are grooming schoolboys in Scotland to help steal savings from victims’ bank accounts in return for payment.
