(The Local) Berlin state police warned on Tuesday that “bank customers using the SMS-TAN/mTAN process have become victim of fraudulent money withdrawals.” Several people have reportedly had their bank accounts emptied in the past few weeks, the police said in a statement.

“In all cases, the SMS containing the mTAN for the online banking system was caught or diverted,” the statement said. “Up until now, those affected have been customers using a Smartphone with an Android operating system.”
