Fraudsters are actively using „hiring” and „calls from law enforcement” schemes to deceive Russians, new schemes mainly focus on the news agenda. This was stated by Deputy Chairman of the Board of Sberbank Stanislav Kuznetsov.
According to him, „divorcing” clients by submitting job offers to high-ranking, high-paying positions is a long, albeit very popular, process. Fraudsters ask for documents with personal and payment information, communicate for a long time and can even send a pseudo job order.
The scheme with representatives of law enforcement agencies also remains popular, Kuznetsov noted. „Scenarios with investigators, employees of other law enforcement agencies – the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the FSB, the prosecutor’s office – continue to be used quite actively,” he stressed.
Besides, malefactors actively study news reports and use information for theft of money and data, Kuznetsov concluded.
