The Central Bank of the Russian Federation announced the amount of funds that phone swindlers steal from their victims. The “average check” of such criminals is 10-15 thousand rubles per call. This type of fraud of bank customers is recognized as the most common in Russia.

On the scale of criminal earnings in an interview "Russian newspaper"said Deputy Director of the Bank of Russia Information Security Department Artem Sychev. One of the reasons for the popularity of telephone fraud, he called an easy and cheap way to organize it.

The second factor is the availability of information that is necessary for deception. It is enough to know the last name, first name and patronymic of the potential victim, and her phone number. Then, in a conversation, gullible citizens are trying to convince to tell which banks and on what accounts they hold money. At the moment, it is known about 15 scenarios that criminals use for this.

As confident in the Central Bank, the main leakage of personal information of citizens occurs not through the fault of banks. People themselves leave detailed information about themselves on the Internet or when registering a discount card.
