2 July 2021

Cases of Selling and Buying Bank Accounts are Rampant: Don’t Get Entangled, Here are the Tips!

Fraud cases are still rampant in Indonesia, and the types are increasingly diverse. One type of fraud that has become increasingly popular in recent times is buying and selling bank accounts online.

Well, Jagoan, as you know, the act of buying and selling accounts is an illegal act that can harm bank customers, both sellers and buyers.

What Happens When Cases of Buying and Selling Bank Accounts are Found?

Since buying and selling bank accounts is a violation of the law, this activity is categorized as a criminal act.

For sellers of bank accounts

The seller or the owner of the account will be fully responsible for criminal acts that arise from buying and selling account transactions.

When a bank account is sold, the buyer of the account can misuse or steal the data of the seller or the account holder. It is certainly not something you want to happen right, Jagoan?

The misused account will be blocked or even closed so that the account holder can no longer open an account or enjoy various facilities provided by the bank.

For buyers of bank accounts

The bank will immediately block the account that has been purchased so that it cannot be used again by the buyer. Thus, the buyer of the account will suffer material losses. Funds that have been issued to purchase an account cannot be returned. That’s a shame, right?
