Service To “Busy Out” Victims’ Phones

The “Krebs on Security” blog is reporting that a new service on the cyber criminal underground can be hired to tie up the phone lines of any targeted mobile or land line around the world.  The service is being marketed as a diversionary tactic to assist online thieves rob commercial banking customers who are routinely called to verify large financial transfers.  For just $5 an hour, or $40 per day, you can keep anyone’s phone so tied up with incoming junk calls that the number is unable to receive legitimate calls.

Of course, discounts are available for frequent users who order in bulk.
