Security service VTB has recorded an upsurge in the activity of fraudsters using a new scheme to trick customers into accessing an online bank’s personal account.
According to the bank’s press service, scammers call customers by phone, pose as employees of the contact center, inform about the blocking of the online bank account and ask them to dictate a password from an SMS to restore access to their personal account. As a result of deception, criminals can access all customer accounts.
“So they try to enter the account or complete and confirm an online loan application and withdraw money from their accounts,” the bank warned.
The VTB security service advises not to engage in conversations with scammers, and then interrupt the conversation and call the bank at the numbers indicated on the bank card to clarify that everything is in order.
