Through ATMs and payment terminals, last year, kidnapped 525 million.

the Russians become victims for two reasons – because of their own trust and new technologies for data theft.

In 2019 7 of 10 theft from the accounts held with the use of social engineering techniques. The client or himself transfers money to the fraudster, and the Bank is not able to return the money, because they are immediately removed from the ATM. Or by using various psychological tricks fraudsters know the card data of the client. This is generally done through fraudulent “call-centers” which claim to represent banks, or online shops.

By law, the Bank is obliged to compensate the customer for the stolen funds only in the case that the client does not violate the terms of the contract: not reported data, the disclosure of which led to the loss of money. This is the card number, the password from SMS, CVV code.
