The Cybercrime virus on the rise due to Covid

The crisis and the impact of Covid has forced us to modify our social models and reinvent ourselves in our way of living. Nowadays, by not being able to go out or be easy prey on the street, since the routes are short and momentary by necessity, criminals have gone from robbing with force to swindling en masse through the screens.

  • The crime of phishing continues to be the crime most used by cybercriminals and the most difficult for researchers to decipher.
  • The ransomware follows closely, having improved its methodology to capture the victims, to later threaten them to expose their private data publicly and thus obtain a ransom.
  • Increased detection of child abuse material online. They continue to use encrypted communications and P2P networks to hide the images.
  • Obtaining passwords and access codes by fraudulently obtaining SIM cards.
  • The deep web does not highlight any rising market, however, cybercriminals are using other, more private platforms to carry out illegal sales.


At Oliver Detectives we always recommend keeping our eyes open and doubting anything that comes our way on the Internet or via email, analyzing all the details or consulting reliable sources we can detect many attack attempts by cybercriminals.

We recommend you read our article where we teach you how to prevent this type of scam:

The writing of a person is as unique as their personality, many people ignore that the moment we write our brain starts up, since the moment the writing of our hand begins to emerge, each and every one of the letters we go designing, planning and thinking.
In the digital age in which we live, and especially with the use of smartphones and computers have caused us to make less use of handwriting, to the point that now letters are no longer written by hand.

Today, psychography is one of the techniques used in Spain, which aims to study the personality characteristics of individuals through the interpretation of the dominated graphic aspects of handwriting, they also call it the “psychology of writing".

Through psychographic analysis we can analyze the presence of traits compatible with ertain pathologies and trends in behavior, graphologists try to know aspects of their personality that the person analyzed does not want to externalize, either because it is not convenient to do so or simply because they are unaware of it.

How do you analyze a writing?

1. Acquire a good sample: ideally to carry out a study that is infallible we must have a manuscript between 15 extension lines and a folio; It is perfect if it includes your signature and performs it on a white paper without a pattern; better still with at least a few hours of separation, because handwriting changes with the mood and circumstances.

2. Look at the pressure of the strokes: we have people who press hard against the paper and others have a light grip, we can identify this aspect through the pressure marks on the back of the sheet, this characteristic has the following meanings.
• A lot of pressure means that emotional energy is high. The subject could be intense, sensory or vigorous.
• An average pressure will indicate that the person is relatively calm but safe.
• A light pressure is a sign of introversion or is typical of a person who prefers situations with low energy levels.

3. Check the inclination of the strokes: the writing, especially the italics, usually tilts from left to right and analyzes the inclination in this way:
• Right tilt: when the writer is eager to write or does it quickly and vigorously; If this is repetitive, the person could be self-confident and confident.
• Left tilt: it could imply that the person wants to hide their emotions is a little collaborative person,
• Straight and vertical tilt: the subject controls his emotions well.

(Stroke inclination sample)

4. Baseline: when writing on a sheet without lines, people do not usually write in a perfect straight line.
• It is said that ascending writing shows optimism and a cheerful mood.
• Descending writing could be a sign of discouragement or exhaustion.
• The undulating writing that goes up and down could mean that the person is unstable or undecided.

5. Letter size: when they grow up, the person could be outgoing; on the contrary, small letters could indicate that this is solitary or introverted.

6. Letters link: if we study cursive letters, they are a prolific source because there are many possible variations:
• Garlands: these curves are cup-shaped and open at the top, they could externalize the strength and warmth of a person.
• Arcades: downward curves that are slower and more sober, but also associated with creative personalities.
• Filiform: the line becomes increasingly lighter towards the end of the word and sometimes there are continuous points on the sheet. This is a rushed and neglected style, although there are other variations.

                                                      ( Sample of filiform writings)

The writing speaks of ourselves, reveals our personality, fears, values, emotional balance, character among others; That is why our work at Oliver Detectives is accurate and infallible; We check through the graphic features the compatibility with certain behaviors or psychosocial aspects, only the one-page manuscript is sufficient to issue a broad personality diagnosis, determine signature authorship, personnel selection, analyze the character of the children including contributing to The choice of couple.

It can be decisive in legal and private processes, keep that in mind!

For centuries, writers have taught us the thousand and one ways to kill. They have perfected methods, scenarios, weapons and alibis to elevate the murder to the category of art. We often observe with horror the modus operandi of current justice, of those who operate live and the inaction of the agencies that must protect the victims look the other way, leaving cases unresolved, do not confuse perfection with lack of discovery.

To conceptualize a crime as perfect, it only takes one fact and that the perpetrator of the crime remains a mystery. Although most cases are discovered sooner or later, some remain unresolved, because crime itself is a human behavior or activity and humans by definition are imperfect. In TV series such as CSI or Criminal Minds the culprit is caught after sophisticated analysis or impeccable autopsies, but the reality is different; some do not get resolved because a corpse is discovered very late and the evidence is very eroded, Others because they are not in the investigation.

Although we would like all criminals to go to jail, it does not always happen. There are those who manage to deceive justice and there are those who almost achieve it.
Of those almost perfect crimes we have a lot to learn:

·           The Unabomber

 It is one of the most talked about cases in the United States, in which a professor of mathematics attacked the nation placing more than 15 bombs by mail, causing 3 deaths and more than 20 seriously injured. The name of the protagonist of such atrocious act is Theodore Kaczynski. More than 50 million dollars were invested for its capture, without success; because The Unabomber did of his for 17 years. It was not until 1996 that his younger brother, David Kaczynski, he gave him away, charging a reward of a million dollars.

·           Murder with sexual mobile

A cleaning woman found last February 21, 2008, the lifeless body of a 35-year-old girl suffocated inside a flat in the Gracia neighborhood of Barcelona. The body was found with a plastic bag tied around the neck. The Mossos d'Esquadra found in a nearby room a wig that, incidentally, was the hair of the victim. Everything pointed towards a sexual mobile and that's where the investigations went, but the truth is that the security forces did not see it clearly. According to police sources, the detainee disguised herself, with a wig included, supplanting the identity of their employee to take out life insurance, of 125,000 euros, of which the owner of the company benefited If he pretended to be the victim. if he impersonated his identity, he could collect the insurance. To disguise the motive of the crime, he hired the services of some men who engage in prostitution. He paid them 70 euros in exchange for his sperm, which the detainee picked up and poured down the legs of the victim to simulate sexual assault. Finally, the skill of the policies pointed to the victim's boss, as her murderer, who has already been arrested as the material author of the events and has been imprisoned.   


Current technology may have brought light in cases now in neutral, but the criminologist does not believe that this was the problem. Most of the time the problems were due to the researchers not convincing evidence beyond doubt to seat a defendant on the bench and, unfortunately, those tests were not obtained. These cases of almost perfect crimes should be advertising and committing ruthless acts alone will take us directly to prisons (and in some cases, to death). Objects, looks, family and even strangers can get to uncover the criminals.

The Internet is a breeding ground for anyone who intends it, you find many wonders but also many misfortunes, and today that we are 100% connected at a personal, work and leisure level, we consider it more necessary to emphasize the dangers that we can find ourselves in this environment.

After spending months between social networks, emails and videoconferences due to confinement, society sees 100% digitization as inevitable, a world is no longer conceived without these tools that streamline procedures and communications, but we do not live in a more world either. safe with them.
Lately phishing is the order of the day, and for this reason we see it necessary to show you an example so that you become aware of what it is all about.

Phising is a computerized term that refers to a set of techniques to deceive its victims by gaining their trust, impersonating the identities of people, companies or entities, to manipulate them and make them do actions to benefit, financially or through information.

Every day we are bombarded by a large mass of phishing campaigns and we are not aware, so we show you a clear example of this:

• Apparently it looks like a post, but we can already see a slip of punctuation in the title, along with some misspelling in the text of the email.
 • If we continue reading, and in the initial greeting we can see that it is generalized, without specifying the name of the recipient. Emails that are personalized are more credible since they refer directly to the person in question, phishing being large amounts of emails will never be personalized.
• Apparently they request an income of a quantity to be able to proceed with a shipment, however they do not expose any type of reference number or request related to said service.
• Later they provide a link for you to click on it. NEVER click on any suspicious email, as this could lead to providing a gateway for hackers and implant a virus within your device.
• If we set them at the end of the email, we will see that said email has been sent through a program called Mailchimp, that is why the logo and the mandatory points that Mailchimp orders that must be put in all emails to carry out campaigns appear. Correos, Netflix, HBO ... do not use any type of these platforms since their emails are executed by their own program.
• Finally, if we give more information to see the email of the sender, an email appears that is not intended to be an email at all:

However if you have received an email of this nature and ignore it, you are already on a blacklist. They will not stop sending you similar emails, impersonating the same or other entities and companies, so that one day you bite. You will have to deal with this for life or delete your email account, as much as you block the email from the pishing, they will create many more to keep sending them to you.

So ... learn these TIPS well, so that when you suspect an email you can check for yourself whether it is a phishing attempt or not.

Prevention in life in general is the key to guaranteeing a higher level of security, and I hope this article will help you live more peacefully and have no problems in the future.

With the COVID-19 crisis and the state of alarm, businessmen have had to stop production and adapt to new scenarios.

Just six months ago, the event we are currently experiencing was only associated with a science fiction story or post-apocalyptic series, but this pandemic has caused society to undergo all kinds of changes from a social, economic and political point of view.

On March 14, 2020, with Royal Decree 463/2020, a state of alarm was declared in order to manage the health crisis caused by COVID-19. Faced with the progressive advance of the coronavirus and the halt of companies, businessmen have had to act immediately, in record time and at a high cost at a professional and personal level; many of them started the ERTE procedures for their workers.

The Temporary Employment Regulation Files (ERTE), allow companies to terminate the employment relationship with their workers for a specific time, this has become one of the effective measures for Spanish companies to deal with economic and technical issues , organizational or force majeure, such as the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on their productive and therefore economic activity.


The avalanche of ERTE presented by the companies, with the aim of avoiding the dismissal of their employees, has caused the collapse in the offices of the State Public Employment Service (SEPE), with the consequent delay in the transfer of the benefit.
For this reason, the majority of affected workers have not yet received the benefit corresponding to the previous month, according to data published by SEPE, about 80,000 benefits are being processed daily, a figure that could complicate even processing all benefits before the end of month.
In this situation that many households are going through, having a job in black is a very present reality for many people. Although it is totally illegal, especially when there are cases in which people are charging the ERTE.


For this reason we want to tell you about the main risks involved:

• Unprotection of the worker: The employer does not have any type of responsibility over the worker. Therefore, if non-payments occur, the worker will be totally unprotected before the law and will lose their right to denounce the employer.
• Withdrawal from work: If you work in a black company, in the event of an accident at work and need to be discharged for a certain period of time, you will not be able to claim the subsidy for this disability, in addition you will not be able to receive income from this cause.
• Sanctions: In addition, the Treasury and Social Security may investigate the worker and punish him.

Oliver Detectives Privados is an investigative agency with a long professional career and experience in collecting legitimate evidence in cases of labor fraud. Our high knowledge in this type of investigation allows us to find the appropriate operative for each case in an agile way. Therefore, this type of irregular actions, in the long run, will generate more costs than benefits and we can provide the solution.

It is a reality that technology and the internet in particular have facilitated our day to day, we can be anywhere in the world in real time and carry out more than 10 conversations at the same time; This perspective of the technological world in which we live has also encouraged the appearance of new computer crimes as it is an easy way to commit a crime.

The landscape of computer crime in Spain has evolved in recent months; reason why the Ministry of the Interior has warned of a month of cyber-scams using the coronavirus as a hook, cyber-fraudsters have them install new applications on their electronic devices or visit web pages to obtain personal data and take control of their computers and mobile phones .

Inside cybersecurity experts highlight in their reports that criminals take advantage of the vulnerability of people in need to access information about the disease through the internet and social networks to find out the latest news of the pandemic or buy face masks or donations for hospitals.

Do not access public Wi-Fi networks: it is something that you cannot avoid, you must always try to verify that the network is what it seems. Some hackers create wifi networks with names similar to those of public networks to mislead users.
Create complex passwords: (combinations of numbers and letters, upper and lower case ...), change them regularly, install an antivirus and update your devices.
Fake emails: if you receive emails requesting personal or confidential information, do not reply to them, download or execute the associated files.
Offers of banking services: if you receive offers from online banking entities that claim to be authorized but their address is incomplete or does not exist, the contact is via mobile numbers or whose prefix is ​​not Spanish. They are usually fake web pages. Also be suspicious if you find financing or investment offers in very favorable conditions from entities located in remote countries, about which you cannot obtain information. They are almost always ghost entities that will ask you to send an amount of money that you will not recover.
Monitor the activity of minors on the network: minors are especially vulnerable to certain types of attacks, so they must be protected, monitoring their activity and preventing them from engaging in risky behavior.

Children, young and old we are not aware that the virtual world is as dangerous or more dangerous than the physical world. Many times it gives us confidence to sail from home without realizing that we are opening the doors to our private life. Many of these crimes can be prevented by changing habits and security systems of our navigation or devices, even with the education or supervision of the activity of minors on the Internet. We know that prevention is better than regret, we just need to apply it.

The stress of isolation could affect the relationship.

One of the collateral effects of the coronavirus, which surely was not among the possible consequences analyzed by the government, are the problems of coexistence that have occurred in many Spanish homes; One of the reasons is spending too much time together that has brought back old and new couple conflicts. The closed door exacerbates the annoying effect we sometimes feel towards your partner's little hobbies.
We now spend 24 hours at home and 7 days a week, spending time with our partner more hours than we are used to; the lack of physical and social activity during confinement causes us stress and anxiety, so there are friction of coexistence, and many can decide to end the relationship, for their own mental health.
Just as it happens to us on summer vacations or Christmas, when we spend most of our time with the family, the coronavirus crisis will cause many couples to decide to divorce in Spain as soon as the state of alarm decreed by the Government has ended.

The Chinese city of Xi'an, which has already passed through the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic, has experienced a spike in divorces after compulsory quarantine has ended.
According to information published by the Chinese newspaper Global Times, the increase in divorce requests began to register on March 1, 2020. However, as the newspaper reports, some couples only quarreled during confinement, but once resumed the normal rhythm of life, things calm down; There were even some couples who started the process but repented and gave up divorcing. Some young couples even decided to remarry while their divorce certificate was being printed.

If you want this confinement due to coronavirus not to take its toll on your partner, don't forget:

  • Communication, fundamental.
  • Living together is not a race to see who is better and who does more.
  • Tolerance, we are doing the best we can.
  • Understanding and support, we help each other.
  • Consensus, we are a team.
  • Time for intimate moments as a couple and in solitude too.
  • Not making final decisions at such a critical time as this.

“If you try hard and win, everything will be fine. But don't forget, in the face of frustration and helplessness, zero violence. ”
