Video Title: The $1,000,000,000 North Korean Bank Heist
"Bangladesh, February 7th, 2016. The director of the Bangladesh Central Bank got off the elevator on the ninth floor, and headed to the back office of the Accounts and Budgeting Department. This was the most restricted part of the building. He was there to deal with a problem,m one that had been plaguing the office the last few days. You see, the printer wasn’t working, and this was kind of a big deal. It was causing a real disruption. The automated printer, which was hooked up to the bank’s software, was supposed to work round the clock 24/7, printing out the bank’s transaction reports in real-time. Due to this technical glitch however, the printer tray remained empty. Much of the day was spent trying to fix the issue;,and after a great deal of effort there was success. They were able to restart the printer. And so the backlog of transaction reports started rolling out, one by one. Now, it soon became apparent that something wasn’t quite right. There were more statements than expected..."

    After watching this video, probably the dumbest thing you could do would be to buy Dashlane. Password managers are an idiotic idea. Now there's only one insecure password to breach instead of dozens, and there's helpfully a list of which password belongs to which site.

    It is not bank incompetence. I was flagged as fraud when i bought tickets to disneyland even though i already told the bank that i would 😂😂😂. The manager was bribed by the middlemen.
    1. You cannot transfer or withdraw enormous amounts of cash in the philippines. If you try to withdraw $2000 USD you will be flagged and blocked ASAP
    2. The only way to withdraw or launder some money is to have the manager and / or other employees agree to it as well. Usually done by some ehem corruption schemes in the country
    3. The manager of RCBC jupiter branch was found guilty and was fined $109million USD, 8 counts of money laundering and 4 to 7 years imprisonment.
    4. The money used in the casino by the middlemen were returned by the owner of the casino . More or less $15million was returned.
