I’m asking because I have my youtube account tied to a family member’s bank account, and I created my own bank account recently. And I wanted to switch the earnings to mine.
I work in the forex industry (not crypto) with my own funds. There's a broker that let me trade extremely high and thanks for that I can open bigger positions every day. However, I can only deposit and withdraw via Bitcoin.
I don't have problems engaging businesses with the biggest exchangers because I can incorporate a business for doing this, not under my own name. I was thinking about incorporate in UK LLP and/or Scotland LLP. Those are the only places in EU Zone that I have…
Corporate bank account for cashing out bitcoin payments in USD/ EUR for 500k+
In the last week, I have gotten an alarming number of text messages from my banks 2FA system sending me verification codes. I believe this indicates my password has been compromised. I’ve had my account for 9 years and nothing like this has ever happened before. I recently added my significant other to the account as a joint holder.
I haven’t contacted my bank yet (although I plan to) but honestly, I don’t imagine they will do anything except for advising me to change my password. And I will. But here’s why I’m reluctant to do that.
In the 2 years that we’ve been together, my SO has had frequent hacks on her various accounts and is constantly getting fraudulent charges on her accounts. A month ago, her Amazon Prime account was being hacked and used to buy digital content, and every time she changed her password the account was being hacked again within a day or two.
Seeing all of this, I believe there might be a keylogger or some other malware on her phone. I’ve mentioned this possibility, but according to her, "iPhones don’t get viruses."
Other than contacting the bank and letting them know what I have seen, and changing the password to the account, what can I do to put the lid on this before it boils over? If it was me, I would go through the phone and delete any app that looked questionable, but since it’s not my phone and my partner isn’t willing to acknowledge the problem, I can’t do that. Maybe I’m jumping to conclusions as well. Any suggestions for an anti-malware scan, or other ways to lock down the security?
I’m not from Information Security or any IT related area. But I want to know if there is any security reason for my digital bank to demand my phone to be on "Automatic Date & Time"?
For example, if I’m abroad, i cannot transfer some money to a friend for because it says my date & time is incorrect.
Is that a badly programmed software or does it have a purpose?
Hey there! I have been working in copywriting for several years and I found a good option to get payment. That's Blackcatcard. The issue is that i live outside Europe and my clients sometimes have doubts about sending money to my local account. So I opened an european account for free, the card was sent to my address for free as well. I can use the card in any shop and withdraw cash at any ATM with a 2% fee (min 1,5 euro) wherever Mastercard is accepted. For Europeans the conditions are more…
Best bank card for a copywriter
Currently, every hour, I auto-run a script which I painstakingly coded (they really don’t make it pleasant/simple). This script does a series of HTTPS requests from my computer to log in to my "Internet bank" as they call it (that is, my bank’s website) in the "simplified login" method, and finally saves down a CSV file representing the account’s latest transactions into my local database. This "simplified login" (normally used by a human, manually) only requires you to enter a personal identifier (social security number) and a pin code, and allows you to view the last three months’ transactions, see the current balance and whether there are new unread "internal mail" (support tickets).
In less than two months, they will permanently remove this "simplified login", leaving only the obnoxious "full login", which requires a human (me, that is) to sit with a special dongle and input numbers into it and on the website form.
In other words, it will very soon be impossible to automate unless I create a highly complex mechanical contraption which physically inserts my Visa card into the dongle every hour, presses "Log in", presses the buttons for my pin number, presses "OK", optically reads the numbers displayed on the little LCD screen, feeds these into the form on the website, and then does the same as my script currently does. In other words, "doable for somebody with extreme motivation and a lot of engineering skills", but "practically impossible" (for me). I have no means to create such a "metal man", not to mention it would cause a lot of "wear and tear" and battery drainage on the dongle. Not to mention it’s absolutely insane.
I have exactly zero use for any "smartphone app", "SMS notifications", "digital id" software, etc. They have consistently "acted stupid" whenever I have asked about this, and their so-called "open API" is not at all open; they don’t say it outright, but they have let me know subtly in private that their API is not for individuals, and not even for small companies, but only large ones and institutions. And that’s all there is to that, as far as they are concerned.
I need to be able to fetch the latest transactions in an automated manner, not involving any special hardware or software.
"Changing banks" is not an option for several reasons. One reason is that the others are just the same.
They seem entirely disinterested in "selling me API access", "upgrading my account" or anything like that. Their one objective appears to be to cripple their normal customers as much as possible, and to push them into using consumer-mindset surveillance units ("smartphones"). I will now be forced to constantly manually log in to "my" account (I can’t really call it "my account" at this point) and manually save down the CSV file, or remember to manually input every single transaction locally for all time to come. The latter "solution" is very problematic due to fluctuating amounts and things like "reserved prices" which are then "settled" a couple of weeks later. (And of course means a ton of error-prone manual work all the time.)
It’s laughable how incredibly worthless "Internet banking" is in 2020. If you had said to a computer enthusiast in 1980 that, 40 years into the future, we can’t even fetch the account balance in an automated fashion, they would look at you as if you were mad. Yet, here we are, in the "wonderful future" where there’s endless talk about "AI" and "cloud" and "machine learning" and "automation", yet I can’t even fetch a number from my local bank…
Is there some serious attempt at a global decentralized P2P bank? I already use Bitcoin Core and Bisq, but almost nobody else does, so they have very limited use in spite of being theoretically wildly useful.
I am regularly receiving all my payments from paypal but some sites doesn't have paypal as payment option and for wire transfer it requires SWIFT code but my bank doesn't have one so what should i do in this case. I heard some people were saying that we can use SWIFT code of other branch of Same bank but is it risky or have any one tried that ? i am from India and my current bank is SBI.
Banks offer to send alerts for each transaction happening on a customers account. My bank is offering three options: SMS alerts, email alerts and push alerts into their own app. Only sms alerts are free of charge. The other options are a very small fee each time a transaction happens.
Could scammers make much out of transaction alerts containing the transaction’s IBAN, the amount and sender and recipient?
Besides that, what is the wisest choice between the options? Email notifications could be intercepted if the scammers gain control of my email account. I might not receive emails while traveling in an area with low reception, while sms still come through.
SMS might be problematic if my phone gets stolen with the sim card. So there’s no way to be informed (but also no good way to authenticate myself to the bank to halt all transactions).
The bank app is not good because it relies on me having a smart phone and an internet connection. The bank states that email and sms will be send unencrypted (as usual), this option is not clear, but it probably will be.
Which of these options offers the most unlikely scam scenarios?

Say if someone needed a 10k loan, and for a couple years was only able to make the minimum payment every month, and then after that, they’re able to pay back that other 7-8000 dollars all at once. Will that accumulate a lot of interest over time?
