Zabasearch.com seeks to enlighten the public that some thieves are not satisfied at only stealing peoples purses or wallets with their debit and credit cards, checkbooks, and cell phones. Some thieves are seeking to take the heist to the next level. The vandal uses the stolen items to glean information about the victims identity.
The information is used to call the victim a short time afterwards claiming to be the bank fraud department. They can keep the victim from calling the bank by acting soon after the wallet goes missing, and explain their phone call saying they noticed fraudulent activity on the account. The scammer then uses their venerable state to obtain sensitive personal information. This can be achieved a variety of ways.
