The scammers got the Australian executive's mobile number from his daughter, and work place details from his willing secretary. Armed with this data, they bluffed Vodafone which ported his phone number, meaning the criminals could verify the bank's two factor verification codes generated during their spending spree and the victim never knew a thing."
Comparing information and knowledge is like asking whether the fatness of a
pig is more or less green than the designated hitter rule."
