Veeam Chief Information Officer Gil Vega warned Russians about holiday fraud in a conversation with the agency “Prime”…
According to the analysis, during the holidays, they are especially often deceived with mailings with fake delivery certificates, gift cards, certificates and coupons, as well as fake seller websites. In addition, fraudsters can impersonate charities. “When some people think about how to share money, cyber fraudsters are focused on how to get it,” he said.
In addition, travel bookings are increasing during the holidays. “Scammers know this and are good at creating attractive but fake travel deals,” – Vega. He recommended being vigilant, checking virtual sellers, site url, and having a separate card for online shopping.
Earlier, the head of the anti-fraud department of Jet Infosystems, Alexei Sizov, said that on New Year’s holidays, fraudsters use both special and traditional schemes to deceive citizens. The classic scheme of hackers during the holidays is fake online sites for the sale of gifts.
