The app is the key to hackers not being able to “easily” hack the QR code.


To be clear there is no "app" from the person using the parking lot. It is just a QR code. The one I saw did not even specify anything else. Not a lot number, not a company. And that part of the sign could have been replaced (covered up) with an additional sign also but with more difficultly since it was higher.

For the QR code it is quite easy.

They scan the QR. It goes to a site that looks like you can pay to park. Probably would not even need to specify the lot. And take a credit card. Or better an alternative payment form.

The site is set up specifically for the scam. It can be legitimized by running a real service via it for some period of time (perhaps selling something trivial on ebay.)
