Nokia 1100 Scandal: Would you pay $32,000?
If you own an old Nokia 1100 mobile phone which was manufactured in the Bochum factory in Germany in 2002, you just may be in the money.
According to a post on vancouversun, there are Russian, Romanian, and Moroccan cirme gangs lining up to offer you as much as $32,000 for your old Nokia 1100 handset as long as its functioning.
The reason for such a generous offer by said criminals is that apparently that particular version of the Nokia 1100 mobile phone allegedly has a flaw in its firmware which enables it to be reprogrammed to receive other people’s phone numbers and apparently allowing the hacking of banking ID codes.
No confirmation on the rumour though, and Nokia are saying they are unaware of any reason why anyone would pay above the odds for a Nokia 1100.
