AT&T Employees Accepted Bribes in Exchange for Planting Malware on the Company’s Network

The Infinite Brief
AT&T employees took bribes to unlock millions of smartphones, and to install malware and unauthorized hardware on the company’s network.

These details come from a DOJ case opened against Muhammad Fahd, a 34-year-old man from Pakistan, and his co-conspirator, Ghulam Jiwani, believed to be deceased.

The DOJ charged the two with paying more than $1 million in bribes to several AT&T employees at the company’s Mobility Customer Care call center in Bothell, Washington.

The bribery scheme lasted from at least April 2012 until September 2017.
