YouTube Video Advertises Illegal Simbox Profits

Previously I have argued that the best way to learn about simbox fraud is reading the advice given by the firms who sell simboxes. Now I learn that the suppliers have gone one step further, producing a pretty slick promotional video that explains how to conduct simbox fraud in Ghana. Their YouTube video says

Ghana is a perfect place for making money


Simbox termination… will bring you a lot of money


Per month, your income will be about $27000

but they warn that

Cheap equipment will bring you to jail


Cheap Chinese gateways… do not have special features like SIM migration and human behavior simulation, which are strongly necessary for safe termination in Ghana

Watch the video below and you will not only learn how to commit simbox fraud in Ghana, but also which EU business provides both the GSM gateway and practical advice on how to avoid law enforcement!

Hat tip to Jan Vervloet of LATRO Services for telling Commsrisk about this video.
