Head of fraud prevention, Center for applied security systems company “infosistemy Dzhet” Alexey Sizov told the Agency “Prime” places where it is dangerous to pay by credit card.
According to him, the only danger is still the Internet, where credit cards are often subjected to phishing. “Dating sites are fakes, through which under the guise of payment for the goods are made remittances in favor of fraud,” he said.
The sites fees are almost always similar to the original, and the rate of appearance of new services on the Internet difficult to determine the reliability of the site.
The expert recommends to get a card for online purchases with a separate account and hold him as much money as will be spent at one time. In addition, do not make big purchases in untested areas and on sites with a bad reputation. Also the Russians are recommended not to provide your personal information to anyone.
In July there is a new fraud scheme. Criminals under the guise of employees of Bank call and offered to issue credit or debit cards in order to steal personal data of defrauded customers. The fraudsters promise the best conditions for processing the transaction. Then they are interested in about the already existing cards of the victim and asked to “check” her personal information.
