    The easy way is to over value assets. Then borrow money against your new wealth & skip the Country for 90 days. That is about how long it takes the bank to put a hold on your passport. Next be sure & have enough cash on hand you never need return.

    Your account information is stored in a relational database. In order to increment the value of what is in your account, you would need to decrement the value of some other account. In other words there would need to be a debit to create a credit. There is no 'programme' that will do that for you, it is all about access. Banks do not even allow their own software engineers to tamper with that data, there is no way that someone from outside the system could do it.

    Let's suppose for a moment that you were to find a way to hack in; you would quickly be caught. When the debit was discovered and the money found to have been moved to your account, who do you think would be first in line for arrest?

    If you have the skills, sure. Most bank robberies are now conducted digitally.

    Yes,

    and the person who can do this and can pull this off will most likely already have tens of millions of dollars in offshore accounts.

      And if the person is already rich, why would they be interested in this sort of thing!

    I'd laugh if the banks security was that bad.
