Click through for more on how fraudsters are using bogus Wi-Fi connections to steal user ID and login information, as identified by Jumio, Inc.
Jumio Inc, a next-generation credentials management company, is cautioning users to be wary of which Wi-Fi network they are connecting to at their local coffee shop. The danger of fraudsters running bogus networks with the same name as the real Wi-Fi network is revealed in new research from Jumio in its soon to be released white paper, "The Fraudsters Playbook."
David Pope, director of marketing and payment fraud expert at Jumio, asserts, "Businesses and consumers alike must be aware that there are many disreputable networks posing as official networks -- their only true purpose is to steal the personal details of unsuspecting Wi-Fi users."
