Usher here. With the help of my friends, I was recently released from jail and would like to congratulate you on the completion of your first mission!
I can confirm that the operation was executed with no harm to the involved participants – all agents reached their safe locations. However, it didn’t come right for Fernando Graves – shortly after the operation Zepacna cartel decided to remove him from his office and made him sign the “resignation” letter.
I will continue fighting the cartel and will need agents like you. Therefore, from now on, you are considered as active agents of BH Operations and your profile will be saved in the database for future operations.
I remind you that you shall not disclose any details about the missions or the organization.
Below you can find the details on the plan and the execution of the mission.
– Mission plan-
The overall plan was split into 2 phases
Phase 1: entering the bank
To achieve this I planned to create an emergency situation at the bank (no real harm to the health of Fernando Graves) in order to enter the bank in the capacity of an emergency team by an ambulance. The following steps were planned:
–> Step 1 – follow Graves from his house (Ma Tahari; green)
From the interview in the podcast I learned that Graves is very conservative, so I assumed that he would drive to work by the same road as usual. So Ma Tahari should follow him from his home and report the progress
-> Step 2 – set the traffic lights to red on Graves’ way to the bank (Dante; orange)
I pretended to be an investor from Switzerland and while talking to Graves (who is a very responsible and punctual person) I emphasized that we would have little time to discuss the investments and thus our meeting needed to start on time. The plan was to create a traffic jam near a metro station to make Graves hurry to the meeting and take a metro to reach the bank.
–> Step 3 – plant mobile phone jammer on Graves in the metro (Ma Tahari; green)
Once Graves would be in the metro there would be an opportunity to plant the mobile phone jammer on him which would block any mobile calls.
-> Step 4 – find drugs delivery man and mix the drugs with barbiturate (Tyler; blue)
In the meantime, Tyler was supposed to find the person who delivers drugs to Graves and mix Graves’ drugs with a barbiturate, so that Graves loses his consciousness for some time. In this case his secretary would call the emergency.
-> Step 5 – steal ambulance car (Ma Tahari; green)
Ma Tahari was supposed to steal the ambulance car which we would use to enter the bank pretending to be medical staff.
-> Step 6 – take over the calls from the bank (Dante; orange)
Dante was supposed to take control over the landline calls from Grave’s secretary (his mobile is blocked) and transfer them to Ma Tahari.
Phase 2: in the Bank
According to the plan, Phase 2 consisted in switching off the camera at the vault entrance (with a help of the informant) and getting access to Graves’ deposit box. However, the situation changed but your brilliant management saved the whole operation.
– Mission start-
Before you could start the mission you were asked to answer security validation questions, which required to provide the sector on the map where each of the agent starts his mission
As per the mission plan Ma Tahari started her mission at the house of Graves. There were two options to find the location:
a. Listen to the podcast https://escondido-bank.com/podcast/ with an interview of Graves where you could hear that from his window he sees the “doors of stock exchange Bolsa de Vega”
b: On the photo of Graves and his security guards you could find the address: Santa Fe 5
Combining one of the options with the fact that blue area is under responsibility of Ma Tahari you could find sector A3
Dante started his mission at the location related to the traffic lights which are at the responsibility of municipal services. The address and the traffic light marker appeared on the flyer of municipal services.
Combining this information with the fact that orange area is under responsibility of Dante you could find the sector D2
Tyler needed to find the courier who delivers drugs to Graves. All three suspects were coming from the same area – near Plaza del Pilar or Zambrano Street. So Tyler’s start sector was B1
– Mission execution –
-> Step 1: findet das Haus von Graves
As explained in the previous chapter Ma Tahari started at Graves’ home and his apartment is in front of the stock exchange at the address Santa Fe 5
-> Step 2: Traffic lights
Dante was not aware about all the details so his first target after entering the data center of municipal services was to connect to traffic light system and then to switch the right traffic light. From the podcast interview you could identify the train’s sound on Graves’ way to work, which indicated that he usually takes 9 de Julio road to reach the bank. The traffic light is located on the intersection of 9 de Julio and San Luis streets which is near San Caetano metro station.
-> Step 3 – plant mobile phone
Pickpocketing is Ma Tahari’s favorite job and she didn’t require support from our side
-> Step 4 – find drugs delivery man
From the informant we knew that once a week Graves received drugs, disguised as food delivery. I had three suspects, but thanks to the recent document from the mailbox of Grave’s secretary you could see a special folder for Cruzitos food company which with high probability indicated that our target was on picture 2.
The mission also required getting to the bank faster so to achieve that, from Cordoba station to Patterson you needed to take red+green (7 min + 4min + 2 min intervall = 13 min) lines rather than the single blue line (15 min)
-> Step 5 – steal ambulance
Bringing together the parking plan, the photo from the drone with the location of ambulances, the information about security cameras and their angle coverage you could conclude that the only car which was not covered by cameras parked on parking lot is 18
->Step 6 – Take over the call from bank
This task was a combination of two tasks:
- Connect to the switch of the bank landline
I found out which company supplied switches to build the switch station at the municipal services. Therefore, combining the technical specification of connectivity for all their switches and Dantes’ information from the data center about which one of them was really used you could conclude that switch which was used was 656 and the connection cables was blue (4)
The next step was to find the right landline option in the bank to reach Grave’s assistant Isabella Carasco. On the web site of the bank https://escondido-bank.com/ you could find contacts for all departments in the bank. The contact of Isabella Carasco could be found in “Hedge Funds and IPO”. If you called bank’s phone number and connected to her Hedge Funds and IPO department you would find out that landline options are 242.
In the bank
As you know in the bank it didn’t go as expected and there was a need for improvisation which you successfully executed.
Tyler was supposed to reach the vault but discovered that cameras were not switched off. To accomplish the mission, it was required to reach the security team which was sitting in the server room west. But in the air ventilation on the way to this room there was an infra-red alarm system which had to be switched off in the server room east.
As this system restarted every 30 sec Tyler stayed there until the end of the mission to switch it off.
Da dieses System alle 30 Sekunden neu gestartet wurde, blieb Tyler an dieser Stelle bis zum Ende der Mission, um es abzuschalten.
As Tyler was stuck in the server room, Dante moved to check the security room and discovered that there were security guards, and the team had no chance to switch off the camera. Since security manager Mateo Flores (ex-MMA champion) was waiting together with Graves’ assistant outside his office, Dante had an idea to hack Flores’ computer and sent an e-mail to the security guards with a request to switch off the cameras explaining it with a necessity to perform a technical upgrade. The only thing remained was to find his computer password. Which could have been complex if Flores hadn’t been such a big fan of Pablo Escobar. He used Escobar’s famous picture to create his password: pablo128482
-> Ma Tahari
After Tyler was stuck in the server room east Ma Tahari was supposed to reach the vault. Having the access to banker’s mobile phone she could pass the 2-factor-authentication and get the security code to enter the vault. The only thing which was missing was Grave’s deposit box number. If you brought together the documents which I received from the Informant just before my arrest (the deposit box plan and the photo of the banker in the vault) with the bank plan you could see that the shortest deposit on wall B is on the right side from the deposit box.
Which means Graves’ box is on wall D. And the box number is 940
After Ma Tahari opened the deposit box she didn’t discover the money which I planned to transfer to the Red Cross, instead she discovered the registration of a crypto currency account at the btc-vault.me.
With the help of hackers organization https://the-legion-of-doom.club/ you could break into the backend computer system of the bank and perform the money transfer.
Once this transfer was executed mission reached its end and was considered accomplished.
