The main fraud schemes for this year have been identified


MOSCOW, June 7 – PRIME. This year, telephone fraud and phishing remain the main fraud schemes, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Sberbank Stanislav Kuznetsov told Izvestia on the sidelines of the SPIEF. Named people whom scammers fear most of all “Nothing fundamentally new has appeared. But there are definitely new scenarios of fooling, diving into fears, fright and coming up with new reliable versions,” said the top manager. In particular, he mentioned calls from the alleged bank security service or law enforcement officers. Criminals come up with legends, convincing their victims that they are allegedly involved in a special operation of law enforcement agencies. According to the fraudulent scheme, such “law enforcement officers” need the help of a subscriber and only thanks to their actions will it be possible to detain the criminals. “The level of trust, unfortunately, in such calls is high, and we record a fairly high level of telephone fraud in the whole country at the moment. And we are close to the fact that telephone fraud can be considered a national disaster,” Kuznetsov emphasized. Sberbank experts have calculated that the tenth call to any phone can be fraudulent. The average amount that telephone scammers end up stealing from bank clients is 8-10 thousand rubles. Read also: How you can be scammed with cryptocurrencies: three main fraud schemes
