The Metropolitan Police's Central e-Crime Unit said the foiled plot to steal millions from a Santander bank computer at a branch in London was on a scale they had never seen before.
This was a sophisticated plot that could have led to the loss of a very large amount of money from the bank, and is the most significant case of this kind that we have come across.
I would like to thank our partners from the industry who have provided valuable assistance throughout this investigation.
The PCeU is committed to tackling cyber-crime and the damage it can cause to individuals, organisations and the wider economy.
