Sberbank warned of new types of fraud, which began to apply in the context of the coronavirus epidemic. Imaginary recruitment agencies appear on the Internet that allegedly offer work on a "remote site", but actually try to deceive network users.

As the RIA News, scammers offer the applicant to fill out a form with personal data. Then he receives a letter stating that he has been hired, but he needs to transfer money for the equipment. After that, the imaginary employer ceases to get in touch.

Among the new deception schemes is the VAT refund scheme. The network has dozens of videos with the proposal to return the value added tax to all Russians left without income. Users follow the link from the description to the video and independently perform expenditure transactions, which leads to a loss of money.

Fraudsters also use coronavirus tests as bait. Those who wish to purchase them receive links allegedly to pay for the goods, but in reality they transfer money to attackers. In addition, fraudsters use popular hashtags of famous brands and companies in their schemes. Among them # sididoma, #home better and others.
