Against the background of the socio-economic situation in the country, fraudsters have come up with a new scheme with training courses on earnings. Olga Daineko, an expert at the Center for Financial Literacy of the Financial Research Institute (NIFI) of the Ministry of Finance of Russia, told TASS about this.

The expert explained that scammers create Telegram channels of “successful hackers”, in which they first place earnings schemes and reports on large incomes, various life hacks. Then, after an increase in the number of subscribers, they announce recruitment for a “training course”, but at the same time they report that there are few places left and therefore they need to sign up urgently, Daineko said.

According to her, after payment, people receive useless or publicly available information or lose money altogether.

“Remember, "secret" ways of earning money are not for sale. Why tell everyone about them if you can earn so well? Moreover, you can not only lose money, but also freedom if the activity is illegal,” the expert commented.
