Whatsapp fraude gestegen in viervoud

Ben jij ook iemand die veel doet Appen en wel eens een Tikkie verzoek doet via Whatsapp? Lees dit dan even.

De schade die Whatsapp fraude slachtoffers hebben geleden, is flink gestegen.

Vorig jaar werden slachtoffers opgelicht voor meer dan 1 miljoen euro.

Dat is dus bijna viervoudig gestegen vergeleken met 2O18, toen het nog om 262.000 euro ging.

De echte schade ligt waarschijnlijk nog veel hoger dan dat. Het gaat hier alleen om mensen die een melding hebben gemaakt bij Fraudehelpdesk.

Bij Whatsapp fraude doen oplichters zich bijna altijd voor als bekenden van de slachtoffers, denk hier aan zoon of dochter, man, vrouw, vader, moeder enzovoort.

Meestal geven de oplichters door aan bekenden van de slachtoffers dat ze een nieuw telefoonnummer hebben. 

Wat ik de laatste tijd erg vaak op Facebook bij vrienden voorbij heb zien komen is dat ze met dat nieuwe telefoonnummer naar vrienden, familie Appen met een Tikkie (Betaalverzoek) hierbij vragen ze om geld om iets te kunnen betalen.

 Natuurlijk zeg je dan als goede vriend gemakkelijk ja, maar zo makkelijk gaat dit dus al tegenwoordig.


De organisatie ontving vorig jaar al 2663 meldingen van fraude op Whatsapp en 353 van de 2663 mensen werden ook daadwerkelijk opgelicht.

In 2O18 ging het om zo een 655 meldingen en 124 slachtoffers.

In de eerste weken van het jaar 2O2O ontving Fraudehelpdesk al 112 meldingen van pogingen tot Whatsapp fraude hiervan maakte 9 personen daadwerkelijk geld over naar de oplichters. Dat is dus al best veel voor het jaar 2O2O, als je kijkt dat we ongeveer pas op 3 weken zitten.

Totaal ging het om een bedrag van meer dan 38.000 euro.

Het gemiddelde schadebedrag per slachtoffer is dan ook toegenomen. In 2O18 ging het ongeveer om 2100 euro.

Vorig jaar was dit bedrag al gestegen naar 3000 euro, voor dit jaar gaat het zelfs om 4200 euro. De oplichters doen zich niet alleen voor als bekende van de slachtoffers ze proberen ook nog eens het hele Whatsapp account van die persoon over te nemen. Hiervoor hebben ze toegang nodig tot de voicemail van het doelwit. Dit lukt best wel eenvoudig als mensen een gemakkelijke geraden pincode gebruiken voor hun telefoon, denk bijvoorbeeld aan geboortejaar. Vervolgens vragen de oplichters in naam van de betreffende Whatsapp gebruiker, een nieuwe verificatie code aan.


Om een Whatsapp account te bevestigen verstuurd Whatsapp altijd een zes cijferige code via sms naar je telefoonnummer(Ook wel vertificatie code genoemd). Wanneer de code niet direct gebruikt wordt kan er ook voor gekozen worden om de zes cijferige code telefonisch door te laten geven. Als het doelwit dan niet opneemt kan de code in de voicemail box terecht komen en is dit voor de oplichters super eenvoudig als je een makkelijke pincode op je telefoon hebt staan. Let dus altijd goed op dat je dubbel checkt tegenwoordig als je een Tikkie binnenkrijgt of die wel echt van je vriendin of kennis is, en maak tegenwoordig ook nooit zomaar meer geld over als ze het je vragen via Whatsapp. Wees dus goed op je hoeden.

The Art Route Boomerang
#yoorsapril2021   #walking #art   This afternoon I went hiking this time just with us through the village, we have here 2 art routes one called De Fountein (11km) and the other is called De Boomerang (6 km). I walked the Boomerang this afternoon. Round Beilen it was nice weather to walk and that was noticeable because it was busy in Beilen everywhere people who were walking or cycling. I didn't take so many pictures of the route this was a bit stupid of me because when I got home I thought I could make a blog about it. Imagine if someone comes to Beilen then they can go hiking this or the other route. But you can also find the pictures on the website where the route is described. Route de Boomerang Beautiful clear route which is also well marked with clear signs, and on the website on your phone for example you can always read what kind of artwork is when it got there and who made it. Pretty interesting. This work of art is called “The Change” and represents that the Beilen - West district has been refurbished and changed and that was completely completed in 2012.. The art work is an emerge of the Dragonfly. Also you can see here the “The thick tree of Beilen” I think this can also be of nature a beautiful old oak that has been there for a very long time. I have wonderfully walked through Beilen and made pictures of what I liked I will be here under a few places. Because I walked in Beilen I didn't make so many pictures and that's a pity I should have taken a picture of every piece of art. I love walking in nature and love as much as possible unpaved, but I must say that I liked to walk once it is a nice route and now I want to walk the other route of 11 km to see where it passes. I have run everything paved today and not seen anything new but still I enjoyed walking. And I hope you have enjoyed along.

Travelling during a pandemic, to Ecuador and back from Amsterdam
#corona #reizen #thewanderingchick #reizentijdenscorona For English please check the language button below I hear you say it, but you're not allowed to fly outside the EU at all. Unfortunately, this is an essential journey for me. For my clothing brand, I need to buy my winter collection that is produced in Ecuador. Fortunately, Ecuador is in the countries of South America where the infections are lowest and where the borders have just opened up again. And since September, normal life has resumed. However, a mouth mask is mandatory as soon as you leave your home and you have to keep 2 meters away. Still, I'm nervous. I deliberately booked my flight last minute. KLM flies directly from Amsterdam to Quito and Guayaquil, so I don't have to make a transfer. And they also gave the option that you could change or cancel your flight free of charge without giving any reason. Through my friends on the coast in Montañita and Quito I am kept informed of the situation. It is currently stable and there have been no new contamination on the coast for a few months. In order to enter the country, a negative PCR test was requested no older than 10 days. I fly on Monday, October 19th. On Wednesday 14 October I have an appointment in the test village in Antwerp for a PCR test. Strangely enough, the queue for paid tests is the longest. (people who travel and have no symptoms have to pay their test themselves) But it all went very fast and within fifteen minutes I drove out of the village again. I had heard quite a few horror stories about results that were lost or people who only had a rash after 48 hours. At me it took exactly 16 hours to get the results in my mailbox. The day of departure started badly. My train direction was canceled when I was on the platform. Luckily I was able to catch another train running with which I finally arrived at Schiphol on time. Unfortunately there was a lot of stress because there was little time to go through customs. Fortunately I had already checked in online and I only carry carry-on luggage, so I could go on like this. My stress turned out to be unfounded, too. There was no one at customs, and in 5 minutes I was through everything. What I thought was strange is that there was no question of where I was going and whether I had an essential journey. When boarding, it was a bit busier. I think the plane was full by 2/3rd. And people didn't really keep their distance, I thought. Also I didn't even ask for my PCR test, which was indicated in the updates I received from KLM. During the flight everything was a lot more relaxed. People who traveled alone got a line for themselves. The air was obviously changed more often and it was pretty cold in the plane. And the other difference was that the crew didn't come along so often with food and drinks, just the most necessary. The meal after takeoff we just got served normally. Later we got a vacuum-packed bag with a lot of snacks and a can of cola. I have to say, the crew really did their best. I got diarrhea halfway through the flight, but there I got a strip with diarrhea inhibitors, extra water and was allowed to use the toilet for the crew, because I had to go almost every hour. After a 14-hour flight we finally arrive in Guayaquil. Leaving the plane was unfortunately rather chaotic again. Although it was mentioned that there should be sufficient distance, everyone immediately stood up as usual, without keeping distance. At the terminal, we need to run our negative PCR test right away. If you don't have it with you, you can have a test done there right away. You'll have to quarantine at the airport hotel until you get the results. When immigration is asked if you come for business or vacation. But for both of you, you can just go on. They are happy with every traveler as the country also needs to have a large part of tourism. I stay 1 night in Guayaquil. the taxi to my airbnb has a plastic screen between the driver and passengers. And everywhere there are mats that disinfect your shoes. The next day I take the bus to Montañita on the coast for a few days of sun, sea and beach. Before entering the bus, my temperature is measured, I am completely disinfected with a spray and I have to pass on my name. That is a bit different than in the Netherlands. Montañita is normally a surfers and party paradise with every day parties and lots of backpackers. Now it's completely empty. Many clubs and restaurants are closed or run at half power. I think it's delicious. With the dog of my friends I make long lonely walks on the beach. And I feel like I could put all the worries of the past few days behind me. After more than a week I leave to the Metropolis Quito for the purchase of my winter collection. Flights from Guayaquil to Quito are now also cheap. For $35, I got a one-way ticket. At Guayaquil Airport there are ozone cabins at the entrance where your luggage will be disinfected. Here, too, hardly anyone is at the airport and can go on like this. The Avianca crew is a bit better prepared than KLM's. They wear not only a mouth mask, but also a protection suit and splash guard on their heads. I also notice that people in general are very cautious. Sufficient distance is kept and leaving the plane goes row by row. In Quito there are more infections and the weekend I arrive it is a long weekend with a national holiday. So there is also a curfew that weekend and after 18:00 no alcohol can be sold anymore and everything must be closed. My friends where I stay all work from home and actually don't leave the house. Almost everywhere you enter your temperature is measured and completely disinfected. Saturday we go to the local artesenal market for the purchase. But it's so busy there, we're going to leave soon. I'm going back on Sunday, and it's a lot calmer. Here too are disinfection mats everywhere and the market is trimmed with fences and directions. In shops, counters are points everywhere with pure alcohol. All the money disinfected before it is handed over. Coin money must be deposited in a container of alcohol. Also, almost all shop staff runs with a mudguard, mouth mask and protective suit. For transportation within the city, I use Uber. Ideal, because reservations and payments are all online Currently I am still in Quito and Friday the 6th I fly back to Amsterdam. I am curious what I find in NL/BE. It'll be getting used to it again after the freedom I have here. All in all, I feel much safer in this, for example in a supermarket in NL where only half container everything is disinfected and no one really can keep distance. What do you think about it right now and what do you think can be improved in NL and BE?
