In Russia, the number of cases of payment card fraud has increased. According to the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, more than ten thousand of such crimes have been recorded since the beginning of this year. Compared to last year, the increase was more than 400%.

As the "RT", the total number of frauds using information and digital technologies for the year increased by 69% and amounted to a total of 205 thousand crimes. Most thefts are committed through social engineering.

Experts urge not to report any data over the phone, even if a person on another wire appears to be a bank employee and reports completely reliable information about the transactions.
