A popular method of stealing money from the accounts of the Russians — use photos of Bank cards that their owners send each other instant messengers. The information was disclosed by the Chairman of the Board of Sberbank Stanislav Kuznetsov, RIA Novosti reported.
He explained that although the deep web is difficult to find pin codes and CVC codes, the number of plastic cards there can be detected easily. “Even if you take a picture of your card and send it to anyone — it’s basically leaked already. With the same success you can throw out the wallet from his wages in the ballot box,” said Kuznetsov.
The Bank representative reminded that even a small amount of information available to the fraudsters, may be enough to talk to the potential victim using social engineering techniques. As a rule, this requires only a surname, a name, a patronymic and phone number of the person.
