    Coronavirus Pandemic Brings Surge In Online Crime: 'Some Of The Biggest Threats Are Cybercriminals'

    In the first-quarter of 2020, 854,441 confirmed phishing and counterfeit pages and 4 million suspicious pages were detected, according to data released by Bolster, a fraud prevention company. The FBI says it has seen a spike in cyber crimes reported to its Internet Crime Complaint Center, with scammers leveraging the COVID-19 pandemic to steal money.The increased fraudulent activity has seen the launch of e-commerce sites promoting free giveaways, with scammers stealing identities.Yoav Keren, the CEO of BrandShield, told Benzinga the COVID-19 crisis is changing our lives, with people spending more time online and becoming more accustomed to conducting online transactions. At the same time, criminals are increasing their online scam activities, he said. Since the crisis began, BrandShield says there has been a surge in fraudulent online activity, with key sectors being targeted including pharmaceuticals, medical supplies, banking, foreign exchange, loan providers, entertainment, online gaming and delivery companies."Some of the biggest threats are cybercriminals who are trying to capitalise on fears around the disease, and in many cases using the identities of known companies or brands to trick worried consumers," says Keren.The attacks have included: * Phishing sites and social phishing: As companies move to working remotely, hackers are taking advantage of new and less established working practices by pretending to be customers or suppliers to trick employees. This includes creating phishing sites impersonating a company's home page or company internal portal. These are often combined with scams which include impersonation on social media platforms or phishing emails to trick employees into giving money away, such as fake invoices. This is a significant threat that most companies are not prepared for. Customers are also more exposed to scams and financial fraud, as many more transactions are now performed online. * Fraudulent e-commerce sites: There has been an increase in sites allegedly selling face masks, hand sanitizer, and even COVID-19 tests. Many of these are financial fraud websites that steal customers' money, while others are sending dangerous counterfeit products. * Fake medicine: There has been an increase in sites offering medicines with claims that they can fight the coronavirus. Bolster released its "Q1 2020 State of Phishing and Online Fraud Report: COVID Edition."The company says it analyzed over 1 billion websites to provide an audit of how phishing and online fraud is affecting enterprises, SMBs, nonprofits and the online consumer community.Stimulus checks and loans have brought out the hackers: Bolster found over 145,000 suspicious domain registrations with "stimulus check" in them."The number of websites that claim to offer small business loans jumped 130 percent from February to March. Hackers spun up 60,707 banking websites to attempt to siphon off stimulus funds," says Bolster.Crypto Scams Bolster says the pandemic has triggered its own malicious cryptocurrency. The company discovered multiple phishing websites peddling fake COVID-19 cryptocurrencies and crypto wallets that aim to siphon data for future phishing, targeted malware or credential stealing."One COVID-19 cryptocurrency bills itself as 'The World's Fastest Spreading Crypto Currency' and attempts to get visitors to download suspicious files off GitHub. Another site prompts visitors to register to find out more information about a COVID coin that "gains value as more people die and get infected," says Bolster.If you believe you are the victim of an internet scam or cyber crime, or if you want to report suspicious activity, visit the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov.Related Links: How To Avoid Stimulus Check ScamsSee more from Benzinga * Report: FBI Seizes Sen.

    What Happens When A Stock Gets Delisted And How It Impacts Investors

    It is an "et tu, Brute?" moment for investors who reposed big faith in companies after careful analysis and sifting through, only to find the securities of the company disappear without a trace from the exchange. An investor might have experienced the moment at least once, as companies opt to/are forced to delist their shares due to multifarious reasons.What Delisting MeansDelisting refers to the process by which a listed security is removed from an exchange on which it is traded. Delisting could further be classified into voluntary delisting and involuntary delisting.Voluntary Vs. Involuntary DelistingSome companies may voluntarily opt to delist their shares from an exchange. Does that mean they are fickle minded? Probably not. The decision to voluntarily delist may be taken weighing in the cost-benefit ratio. Companies may deem it too unviable to have their stocks listed, as legal and compliance costs associated with listing may outweigh the benefits arising out of a listing.Moving over to involuntary listing, it can be viewed as the company being kicked out of an exchange as it failed to comply with listing standards laid down by the exchange. When a company goes out of business, delisting is a natural corollary.Summarizing The Major Reasons For Delisting * Bankruptcy. * Absence of trading or negligible trading. * Non-compliance with ongoing listing standards. * Company going private. * Costs related to listing outweighing the benefits associated with listing.How Companies Steer Clear Of DelistingComplying with ongoing listing standards of exchanges where shares are listed is one surefire way of warding off delisting. The compliance reassures investors of the credibility of the company in question. On the contrary, when a company flouts these norms, it's forced out of an exchange.How Are Investors Impacted By Delisting?When a security gets delisted, it ceases to trade on a major exchange. That said, technically, the holding of an investor is intact, and he can still trade in the security, provided there are willing buyers.However, in reality, the ownership right to the security becomes worthless. The announcement, which is made prior to the delisting by companies themselves if it is a voluntary delisting, or by the exchange, if it is an involuntary delisting, sends the share spiraling down, rendering your investment worthless.The security may become illiquid. Once a stock is delisted from a main exchange, it will be relegated to trading in the OTCBB or the Pink Sheets. These loosely regulated exchanges do not provide easy access to everyone to trade.However, in a going private transaction, investors at least get some return on their investment, as companies buy out existing shareholders.In the eventuality of a bankruptcy, the company's shares can still trade on the OTCBB or Pink Sheet, although these shares can become worthless when new shares are issues as part of its reorganization plan on emergence from bankruptcy.If the company comes out of bankruptcy, there may be two different types of common stock, the old stock and the new common stock that the company issued as part of its reorganization plan: * The old common stock is traded on the OTCBB or on the Pink Sheets, with a five-letter ticker symbol that ends in "Q," indicating that the stock was involved with bankruptcy proceedings. * The ticker symbol for the new common stock will not end in "Q." Sometimes the new stock may have been authorized and are yet to be issued. In such a situation, the stock is said to be trading "when issued," which is shorthand for "when, as, and if issued." The ticker symbol of such a stock will end with a "V," which will no longer appear when the stock is issued.What Should Be The Stance Of Investors When Their Holding Faces Risk Of Delisting?One may be well advised to liquidate the holding as early as possible to minimize the losses on one's investment. However, some high profile companies may get their ADRs delisted from the main exchanges and yet trade on a well regulated major overseas exchange. It may be worth holding onto them even if it means they are lightly traded over the counter.Visit BZTeach for more awesome educational content!See more from Benzinga * This Economist Projects 3 Quarters Of GDP Contraction In Coronavirus Recession * Companies Suspend Dividends, Buybacks As Pandemic Weakens Market * From Record Highs To Bear Market In 21 Days: BofA Says To Avoid Panic Selling, Focus On Quality Stocks(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.

    Warren Buffett Stocks Ranked: The Berkshire Hathaway Portfolio

    The Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) equity portfolio still holds many of the storied blue chips that most investors associated with portfolio. American Express (AXP). Coca-Cola (KO). More recently, Apple (AAPL) and Amazon.com (AMZN).But a deeper dive into Warren Buffett's stocks reveals a more complicated picture, not to mention a portfolio that has undergone quite a few significant changes of late.Most notably, Berkshire exited its investments in each of the four major U.S. airlines. The coronavirus pandemic, which put an end to the bull market, also decimated the airline industry. Buffett said as recently as March that he "won't be selling airline stocks," but in early May, Berkshire turned tail, disclosing in filings that it closed out its stakes in United Airlines (UAL), American Airlines (AAL), Delta Air Lines (DAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV). And Buffett has done plenty more selling on top of that.Berkshire Hathaway held positions in 43 separate companies (across 46 different stocks thanks to firms with multiple share classes) as of the end of the first quarter, down significantly from 49 in the fourth quarter. That's according to its most recent 13F regulatory filing, submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, as well as additional filings in May and April. But the portfolio of "Buffett stocks" isn't as diversified as the number might suggest. Some are new positions so small they equate to a pinky toe in the water. Other holdings are immaterial leftovers from earlier bets that the Oracle of Omaha has mostly exited, just not completely.Still, anyone who wants to know which stocks legendary investor Warren Buffett feels are worth his time and attention need look no further than the Berkshire Hathaway equity portfolio. Just remember: A few of these Buffett stocks were actually picked by portfolio managers Todd Combs and Ted Weschler, who many believe are the top candidates to succeed "Uncle Warren" whenever he decides to step down.Read on as we examine each and every holding to give investors a better understanding of the entire Berkshire Hathaway portfolio.
