Safely stealing money

Postby T4 » Sat Jul 31, 2004 5:18 am

After I did a job transfering money (a 'donation'), I thought it would be easy to steal some money for myself...

I hacked into an account at the Datapic International Bank, and transfered the money to my account at the Uplink International Bank.

A few minutes after I stole the money, my Uplink account was destroyed. The bank had noticed me stealing the money, although I deleted the statements and the logs at my first bounce point (InterNIC).

Now, when I think about it, I know I did something wrong, but I can't put my finger on it. I've searched the forum and read a topic about stealing money for yourself, but it didn't solve my curiosity.


I was wondering if this would be successful:

I create a bank account at, let's say, Uniphase Bank. I hack into an account at the Datapic Bank (with enough bounce points and Monitor Bypass), transfer the money to Uniphase, and delete the statements and logs.
Then, I transfer the money from Uniphase (so no hacking will be required seeing as it's my account) to my account at the Uplink International Bank.

I think there is something wrong with the above scenario, the same thing that was wrong with my first attempt at stealing money, but again I cannot put my finger on it.

I have already been 'deleted' from Uplink three or four times, and this time I was at the Uber-Skilled rating with quite a few credits in my account, so I wasn't too happy (thank god it's only a game! :)).

So, people who are experienced in stealing money (in Uplink ;)), please: help me get richer! :D

you havent stated in your post weather or not u delete the transfer logs (its in the menu with you account, loan and tranfer money options

if you dont delete your transfer logs then they only have to look at them to find out where the money was transfered

you need to bypass the proxie/firewalls at BOTH banks
and then you need to use a log deleter on the transfer logs saying about the money deposited/withdrawn from the other account

i hope that helps

It does, especially because it made me think: I deleted the statements, but I cannot remember anything about deleting transfer logs... I will definately look into that!

Do you mean the Datapic & Uniphase banks in the hypothetical 'scenario' I posted?

The Statements ARE the transfer logs.

as you descripe it, you made it all right.
perhaps you wasnt fast enough, thats the big Problem at bank hacking, the passive trace so fast, it just lets you time to blink, sort of :wink:

Try this:
-Hack the bank
-write down EVERY account (you got time, when you bypassed the monitor.
-open every account and look for "2.000.000 cr has been transfered" entries (if its not in THAT account) write down the Ip and acc, and hack that account.
-after hacking a account, delete just the "transfered to" statement in the hacked one, than internic, than your own (i prefer to use Fake accounts, that has more style :twisted: )

If you was fast enough, everything is al right.

greets
I see hacked terminals. :D

Yeah, I managed to hack a bank (the account owner had over one million in his account, I feel like a selfish Robin Hood! :p) and get me some credits (I stole about 400,000 if I remember correctly).

The problem I had last time seems to be the speed: this time I raced my way through the hack & deletion of statements and logs, and I wasn't caught :)

Too bad this isn't real life, only 15 EUR left on my real bank account :cry:

Why did you stole only 400,000? If I find 1,000,000 from a bank account, I will steal it all! :twisted:

After reading this topic, I read http://guide.modlink.net/section6.php#6-1 a few times. Once you have a good general idea of what to do when, you can do it fast & safe ;)

What?! Do you mean that all those e-mails I've been getting - that those mean nothing? No one wants to contact me or be my friend? :(

getting rich

Postby zero-limit » Sun Aug 08, 2004 11:20 pm

I have found another way to get rich and not hack at all, upgrade your gateway to a nice system, than downgrade it and this will return some cash, you have 24 hours for downgrade many times as you want, and the cash still growns . When the upgrade is complete you will no rights to downgrade, but i have made 1.5 million this way, and i have buied the perfect equipment :)

sorry for my bad english, I am still learn it

use the credits, be a powerfull hacker

uplink is the best game ever!
