05 Jul Patient Details of Australians on Sale for Less Than $30
A trader from an illegal auction site claims to be offering Australian Medicare card details for less than $30. The trader says Medicare details of any Australian can be retrieved “upon request” by “exploiting a vulnerability” in a government system.
The trader uses an Australian Department of Human Services Logo to promote their services dubbed “the Medicare Machine”
Australian Medicard details are private information not available to the public. Organised crime-groups have motive to acquire the data so they can use legitimate information to create fake physical Medicare cards which they can use for identification fraud.
