In Kostroma the police began checking on the fact of remote fraud of more than 4 million rubles. The money from 77-year-old local resident, who planned to buy an apartment, allegedly lured a swindler, according to Kostroma.Today.
The pensioner has accumulated a large sum for the purchase of housing, but wanted to earn more. She began to look for employment opportunities on the Internet, and some time later she was contacted by a young man who promised her the position of a trader on the exchange. He asked the woman to undergo pre-paid online training.
For three months the Russian has willingly paid for the various training programs. Once the victim agreed to buy her a job, “consultant” tried to convince her again undergo a paid training in a different specialty. In early may, the man began to offer her a job, but asked to pay for the paperwork and to make the initial payment. Woman transferred to the account personal savings, after which the swindler has stopped communicating. According to the pensioner, on the Scam with employment she lost a total of 4.6 million rubles.
Earlier in may, the Russians warned of a new form of online fraud- the attackers try to force the clients to install on the smartphone program remote access and then steal the money. Many financial institutions, however, have technical capabilities to prevent such attacks.
