JACK:Things were really looking good for Samy at this point. He was nineteen years old, making great money at a company that he helped create. Samy was a smart young lad, but eventually he got bored. What do you get when you have a bored hacker? Yeah, you guessed it; trouble.
JACK:The Los Angeles DA charged Samy with modifying data on a remote machine. In settlement talks, prosecutors proposed that Samy serve some time in prison and not be able to use his computer for the rest of his life. Keep in mind that Samy was supporting his mother and as a high school dropout, his only skill set and his livelihood were entirely dependent on using a computer. Samy was so bright and gifted and passionate about computers and technology and the internet and hacking. You can imagine how scary it was for him to face the prospect of having to live the rest of his life without ever being able to use a computer again.
JACK:So, just six months after Samy had completed his probation for hacking MySpace, it was 2018. Samy was around twenty-one years old and he starts looking into hacking credit cards, specifically the NFC and RFID chips on them.
JACK:[MUSIC] For the last decade, Samy has continued to take on very interesting projects; hacking into stuff and exposing vulnerabilities. Like, another thing he found was that smart phones were tracking their users without their knowledge which was a revelation that led to a class action lawsuit.
These scams typically involve a criminal spoofing or mimicking a legitimate email address. For example, an individual will receive a message that appears to be from an executive within their company or a business with which an individual has a relationship. The email will request a payment, wire transfer, or gift card purchase that seems legitimate but actually funnels money directly to a criminal.
