New options for fraudulent schemes

Leaving a considerable part of the cash flow into an electronic form has forced scam artists of all stripes to come up with new fraudulent schemes for weaning money from citizens with the help of computer and Internet technologies.

Divorce of people for money has always been quite profitable, this is the main reason for the dominance of fraudsters. The second, but no less important, is that it is quite difficult to bring them to justice, even by proving guilt. Yes, and the terms in this case are usually conditional, which makes the criminals feel some impunity.

Old doesn't mean bad

There are many time-tested and it seems like all well-known schemes, but they still give a good profit.

Masked man

Among them are skimmers (devices for reading data from an electronic card, which are mounted on ATMs), messages from an alleged relative about the urgent need to receive a certain amount of money to an account or phone and other “winnings in the lottery”.

Such fraudulent schemes give a very good result.The point is in the confidence of each person that this simply cannot happen to him, and those who “fell for it” are just stupid and inattentive people.

But despite the fact that the old fraudulent schemes still work well, the underworld is evolving. The theoretical base is being improved, and the ways to defraud money or personal data are constantly changing in accordance with the surrounding reality.

Hand from computer

Some new fraudulent schemes are becoming increasingly popular and prove that it is not as easy to protect yourself from scammers as it may seem.

Scam with bank cards and transactions

There is a huge field for the activities of criminals. One of the options is when a victim is called by a bank employee (a message arrives) asking for personal data and an account number to confirm possession.

Message on the phone

This is done ostensibly due to a failure, employee error, or under another pretext. Gullible people report everything they need and after a while discover an empty bill.

Network scammers

Scammers on the Internet with the development of the network also received a strong impetus to improve the options for their scams.

Here and "fake" ads on online auctions, when after the purchase of the lot all the losers are informed that the winner refused it, and they can get the desired item by transferring the required amount to the specified details.

Bear trap with money

Or you put something up for sale, you are contacted by a potential buyer and agree to the specified amount, but he is in another region and cannot personally pick up this thing. Therefore, the payment will be made by transfer to your account, after which the courier will come to you and collect the paid goods.

The victim will be required to provide the account number for the transfer and passport details for the transport company. After receiving personal information, the offender evaporates with your money.

Substitute sites

Another fresh fraudulent scheme is to write a phishing page (to collect logins and passwords), which copies the official resource, for example, your bank. Externally, such sites have minimal differences or are absolute twins, and it is not always possible to suspect that something was wrong.

Man in mask at the computer

The only thing that gives them out is a distinguishable email address from a real one. Usually it is on free hosting.Criminals in any way possible lure their victims to these sites, and if you do not show vigilance, will have access to your data.

When criminals go unpunished

Fraud is an economic crime that does not often attract the attention of law enforcement agencies.

The problem is the limited resources allocated by the state, and the fact that the scammers take not the quality, but the quantity, receiving not very large amounts, but with the maximum possible number of “bought” people. Therefore, if you have been deceived for 10-20 thousand rubles, then simply no one will do it.

Handcuffs and money

The way out will be your own vigilance and attention to detail.
