NBI files charges vs 2 men in cyberheist try

/ 04:15 AM April 18, 2020

Agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) filed charges against two men who attempted to procure an access device, a third-party banking account used by hackers to divert stolen funds.

Jayson de la Cruz and Kevin Marmolejo, who allegedly conspired in procuring the access device, were charged with violations of Access Devices Regulation Act of 1998 in relation to the Cybercrime Prevention Act before the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office.

De la Cruz posted an advertisement on Facebook, saying he was looking to buy an access device. Automated teller machine cards and legitimate online banking accounts are some of the examples of access devices.


An entrapment operation was launched against De la Cruz on Wednesday on General Luis Street in Novaliches, Quezon City.

Agents found out that De la Cruz was supposed to deliver the access device to Marmolejo after procuring the item. Marmolejo was arrested in a follow-up operation on the same day. —Nikka G. Valenzuela
