Authorities were quick to arrest this 22-year-old Computer Science student in Isabela. Christian Salvador, a resident of Purok Dos, Cauayan, Isabela admitted that he created a fake bank website, and stole money from it.
After NBI (National Bureau of Investigation) and DOJ (Department of Justice), Office of Cyber Crime lifted a search and seizure warrant, Salvador was found guilty.
The suspect was a graduating Dean’s Lister student in Isabela State University. He was traced by the NBI after an unnamed bank discovered the anomaly and had enough of the complaints they’ve been getting from their clients.
Salvador did not deny that he hacked the victims’ personal accounts and earn money from it by selling these accounts to other hackers.
He also said that he likes Web Hacking and Fishing.
Phishing is a type of hacking wherein you get someone’s personal information and bank accounts. He said that he was challenged, and wanted to apply his knowledge through hacking.
Authorities also visited his family’s house and investigated his brand new car. They found out that his mother is an OFW in Lebanon and his father is a local worker.
The suspect’s father was very disappointed, he thought that his wife’s efforts were put to waste. They sacrificed everything, according to him, just to give him a proper education.
Salvador would be charged for violating the Access Device Regulation Act of 1988 (Republic Act No. 8484) and the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (R.A. No. 10175).
His other devices like computers will undergo a forensic examination for further investigation.
