Big scam coming in fake voice: The manager of a bank was tricked into using a fake voice made with artificial intelligence and transferred $35 million to another account!
Another highly creative method of using artificial intelligence for fraudulent transactions has emerged. A person who called a UAE bank claiming to be a financial representative of a firm was able to transfer money by phone, giving all the necessary information, as well as passing voice recognition.
The offenders used“deep sound technology to mimic the director’s voice,”Forbes reported. UAE officials have asked the U.S. Department of Justice to provide details of two people with U.S. bank accounts where more than $400,000 of the stolen money was deposited. Investigators believe there were at least 17 people involved in the robbery.
