A new method of remote fraud was revealed by the Vologda police

The crooks began to deceive the residents of Vologda according to a new scheme. At the same time, all the so-called “bank employees” also call the victims.

Having entered into a relationship of trust, attackers scare citizens with suspicious account transactions and convince them to cash out money and then transfer the funds to “safe” cells. When someone is at an ATM, scammers ask them to take a picture of the QR code on the screen and send it to them.

After that, a bill acceptor opens at the ATM, and the deceived citizen deposits his money there. After confirmation of the operation, the funds go to the criminals’ accounts.

Since the beginning of the year, three inhabitants of the regional capital have been deceived in this way. The day before, using this trick, a 49-year-old woman from Vologda lost 354,000 rubles.
