Fraudsters began to use taxis to convince bank customers to transfer their money to the accounts of attackers. The new scheme is used to deceive senior citizens who do not use online applications. On the phone, the victim is scared by blocking the account or by illegal write-offs and is promised to send a taxi “from the bank”, which will deliver them to the ATM.

As reported "News" With reference to the information of the Central Bank, several people complained to large banks. By telephone, unidentified persons introduced themselves as employees of credit institutions and reported that they were trying to write off money from customers' cards. Finding out that the potential victim does not have an online bank, they offered to use the transfer services to the ATM, which is supposedly provided in such cases.

Near ATM, citizens are offered to transfer funds to a “safe” account. According to experts, scammers have relied on a concern that could dull the vigilance of older and single citizens if they have no one to consult with at that moment. According to large banks, the transfer service is really provided in several institutions, but it is valid only for premium customers.
