Fraudsters are interested in bonuses that are received on the bank cards of Russians. In 2019, the number of illegal attempts to write off points reached record levels - several thousand per month. Most often, personal accounts of customers of telecom operators, transport organizations and large retail chains are hacked.

As reported "News", in one case, the fraudster gets access to the registration data of his victim and pays bonuses for his purchases, and in the other, he sets up a personal account on someone else's card, so that the citizen does not even know that bonuses are being awarded to him.

According to experts, bonus points are mainly stolen by novice scammers, in particular university students. Loyalty programs in monetary terms are estimated at 50 billion rubles, so the interest in them from attackers is justified.
