The FBI is warning of an imminent coordinated global attack of draining cash from ATMs. Here’s why it matters…
There is common knowledge that surely most in the alternative media understand, and that is that the globalists (as in “global elite” as some like to say) like to communicate what they are going to do before they do it.
It’s kind of like saying, “well, don’t say we didn’t warn you”, and it’s kind of like saying, “there’s no blood on our hands”.
Of course, not being part of the globalists myself, I’m not privy to the “why”, so that is just pure speculation on my part, but the subtle communications are still there.
And we recently received one of these subtle communications from the FBI itself.
With everything that has happened over the last couple of years, it is safe to say the FBI is filled to the brim with Deep State globalists and swamp creatures galore.
Here’s part of the FBI warning (the subtle communication) as hosted on Krebs:
“The FBI has obtained unspecified reporting indicating cyber criminals are planning to conduct a global Automated Teller Machine (ATM) cash-out scheme in the coming days, likely associated with an unknown card issuer breach and commonly referred to as an ‘unlimited operation’,” reads a confidential alert the FBI shared with banks privately on Friday.
The FBI said unlimited operations compromise a financial institution or payment card processor with malware to access bank customer card information and exploit network access, enabling large scale theft of funds from ATMs.
“Historic compromises have included small-to-medium size financial institutions, likely due to less robust implementation of cyber security controls, budgets, or third-party vendor vulnerabilities,” the alert continues. “The FBI expects the ubiquity of this activity to continue or possibly increase in the near future.”
The warning was not public, like a PSA, but private, and issued to security teams and administrators of financial firms.
But they’ve said it, and now it’s out in the public.
Consider ourselves warned?
Here’s more of the mainstream take from the Deep State’s propaganda machine of choice, CNN:
Krebs reported that the scheme is known as an “ATM cash-out,” which means the attackers can hack a bank or payment card processor and use stolen information to withdraw large sums of money at ATMs worldwide. His report cited a confidential alert the FBI shared with banks last Friday.
The FBI did not comment specifically on this potential attack. In a statement to CNN, a spokeswoman said that “in furtherance of public-private partnerships, the FBI routinely advises private industry of various cyber threat indicators observed during the course of our investigations.”
“This data is provided in order to help systems administrators guard against the actions of persistent cyber criminals,” the spokeswoman said.
CNN reached out to two major banks, Wells Fargo ()and JPMorgan Chase ( ), both of which declined to comment.
Krebs has reported on similar “unlimited operations” before, including a scheme in which more than $2 million was stolen from a Virginia bank in 2016 and 2017.
The alert, called a private industry notification, was sent to a narrow group of cybersecurity professionals and system administrators at financial firms that had assets at risk, according to a federal law enforcement official.
Is it possible that the globalists are communicating the crash is on deck, so to say?
Additionally, it is very interesting that the major financial threat involves cash from ATMs.
What better way for the globalists and the Deep State to do this than with the cover of a globally coordinated ATM attack?
Furthermore, it would directly link “terrorists” to cash, which would help in the shaping of public opinion and the subsequent sheeple’s acceptance of whatever freedoms and liberties the citizens are forced to be give up, all in the name of “fighting financial terrorism”.
OK, “Half Dollar, so what, who cares if they eliminate cash? I don’t carry any in my wallet anyway, and I never use an ATM”!
Many people say something similar.
Here’s the thing – when cash is eliminated, the effect is four-fold.
- There will be a total loss of privacy as every single transaction is tracked and traced.
- Every transaction can be taxed and/or charged a fee.
- People (i.e. dissenting Patriots) can be cut off from the system and essentially blacklisted from everything.
- Negative interest rates can become de-facto policy, and “digital” cash could even have a “use it or lose it” date, much like digital coupons.
Here’s a video report from Fortune about the potential ATM attack:
Gold & silver can protect a person against a cashless society, because gold and silver, held outside the banking system, are the ultimate in privacy that has been used as money for thousands of years, assuming the metal is safe, secure and in one’s possession, or in one’s ability to possess with minimal effort.
The big questions are, why is the FBI warning this, and why now?
Is something big coming down the pike?
Like a false flag operation?
Of the financial kind?
Which not only crashes the global financial system but can be used to justify the push to go cashless?
The FBI did say “in the coming days”.
And that was five days ago.
