Park Seul-gi “I suffered greatly from voice phishing… 12 million won in damages”

Broadcaster Park Seul-gi shares her experience of being voice phishing.

In the JTBC entertainment program ‘World Dark Tour’, which airs at 10:30 pm on the 23rd, Park Seul-gi, who joined as ‘Dark Tourist’, analyzes voice phishing techniques that are taking place regardless of borders.

On this day, the dark tourists trace the traces of voice phishing together with criminal scientist Kim Bok-jun and dark guide. As it is a crime that is prevalent not only in Korea but also around the world, including the United States and Europe, the methods are also diverse. Accordingly, Kim Bok-joon Dark Guide explains voice phishing methods from around the world.

One by one, bizarre methods will be revealed, including Japan’s unique voice phishing ‘Apoden fraud’, which leads to robbery and murder following fraud, as well as phishing crimes that are openly committed in prisons. Above all, Park Seul-gi is shocked by the absurd scene of a Latin American prison, which is the background of phishing crimes, saying, “It’s ridiculous, it’s real.”

As the criminals’ methods become more and more sophisticated, there are absurd cases where even an answer becomes a target of a crime. While giving an example, Dark Guide Kim announces the shocking fact that “Narae Park has been voice phishing” to Narae Park, who answered as if possessed by the phishing criminal’s question.

In particular, Park Seul-gi introduces a case she has experienced, saying, “I was very victimized by voice phishing crimes.” He said that the amount of damage alone was close to 12 million won, and he reveals the story at the time of the damage as well as after that.
