For example, not so long ago in Moscow was delayed a couple, suspected in telemarketing fraud against thousands of Russians in the amount of more than 100 million. Attackers in the name of your company or radio station reported subscribers, as a result of the action they have become the owner of a valuable prize, for which "need only inform the PIN, and well as their passport details. " That was enough to fraudsters were able to withdraw money from an account of the legitimate owner, and passport data used to produce counterfeit documents. Calls performed inmates of correctional labor institutions that are through mediator at liberty contacted by hackers, mobile receive number of victims and the scheme of "divorce." Scary to think how much money constantly flowing into the hands of mobile fraud, if only this family managed to pocket a pair of 100 million rubles of others. Theme Mobile Fraud has become as old as the hills, and yet, people still come across the tricks of swindlers Today we tell about the main ways of cheating, by which the telephone con artists prey on unsuspecting citizens. Relative in need of this scheme "divorce" is the following: fraud calls to a mobile phone unsuspecting victims, it seems relative and says that he was in trouble, for example, knocked down or hit man the police department for fighting. But he adds that a police officer ready to "hush up" the situation and not to go to trial in exchange for cash reward. Then the tube is quickly transferred to a police officer allegedly, that tells you when and in what place should bring money. As a rule, when such calls audibility is very bad, there are strange noises, and the victim is very difficult to identify the caller's voice, "relative." That the fact that he was calling from another phone batteries due to stranded or other equally valid reasons. Of course, in such a situation, when a close relative in trouble, it is hard to think soberly and dispassionately. However, instead of throwing the money into his arms outstretched scams just call your cousin and ask whether he such problems. In most cases, everything is in order, and con artists remain with the nose. "Throw me the money." Another common way to deception, but this time using SMS, which probably came every second citizen of our country. Text messages like this: "Hi! This is my new number. I have a small problem. Kin, please $ 100 for this number, night call, explain everything. " Hard to believe that someone else "is" on such reports, however, since fraudsters will not calm down, the circuit works well.

And the scammers will create visibility for your elementary them dating having information about you. It is also very easy to fool people who file some ad. For example, scammers have seen the announcement of the sale of puppies three weeks ago, called the man and after the phrase "Hi! Remember, I recently bought a puppy from you? ", ask for some money a favor. "Call me!" But this way of divorce probably took the bait considerable number of people. The subscriber's phone rings unfamiliar number, and then resets. Out of curiosity to call back so many unknown number, which, of course, is paid. By the same species fraud and may include cases where the subscriber's phone arrives SMS from unknown numbers. For example, "Hi! What are you doing? ". Curious subscriber necessarily respond to a message, start up conversations, and then found to that the account was gone a decent sum of money for expensive message. Money is not the address on the phone of the victim receives a message that on his mobile account credited funds. Almost immediately messages after the bell rings, and the interlocutor at the other end begins apologize and said that by mistake put the money into your room and tearfully asks him to return at least half, putting them on his account. Avoid such cheating is simple: just check your balance, and remember that these warning may not come with the subscriber number of 11 digits. "You win! "On your phone number receives a call, and joyful voice at the other end, provide the staff of a popular radio station reports that you have won a major prize (car, travel abroad). Only there is one small thing: to get the prize you need to buy cards pay phone in $ 200 and report their numbers. Fraudsters it can explained by the fact that the rally is held in conjunction with the largest operator Cellular, which fielded such a condition due to falling demand on those same cards. This, of course, nonsense. No need lickety-split run for the cards, just judge for sober: for any other awards you decided to donate a prize, even if you do not participate in any sweepstakes and lotteries? If this argument is not convincing for you, just call the radio station and indicate whether they held a raffle? Bell Support from the employee. A subscriber calls allegedly Support Officer its mobile operator and reported that in their database crashed or any changes or updates. And for the further use of the services the operator must enter the code on the phone at the dictation of the operator. In practice as this code is a combination of digits to convert your funds to an account fraud. Feel Telelohotron can be attributed to one of the species fraud and numerous game shows, where the cute girl asked a question, who knows the answer to even a first grader, and urge them to call the studio. In exchange for the right answer, they promise a good reward. Throughout the program to call the studio people, and can never guess cherished word. The audience, sitting at the TV screens, stupidity amazed callers and decide to call themselves. And as a result of a nasty surprise awaits. Answering system said that now the line is busy, but you should not hang up. At the same time for each minute of the expectations from their accounts removed a lot of money. Cases of mobile fraud "Three days in a row on my mobile with a secret phone number nazvanivaet certain Anton, who under the guise of Support your company's "Bee Line" reported that the computer the company has failed, my mobile number and account on it blocked, and for solution is to follow his instructions, namely, to dial the phone the next number, "* 145 * 9600913505 * 10 #". But the fact that I know - it is not saving my money, and mobile money transfer (in this case - $ 10) from my account to the account number. Writing the number and assuring Anton that now call the number, I immediately called the "Bee Line" for fraud and, of course, did not stop there - the police, in order to protect other, more gullible citizens from losing their money on mobile account. However, our brave law enforcement authorities have not shown no enthusiasm, quite the contrary. I did not cheated? No. So what I was worried? Should be happy, but in silence. The fact that so may to deceive other people, our police are absolutely not interested. Opposite - I was immediately convinced that the cause of death trap, it is useless to deal with. After development perseverance I reluctantly dictated the number of combat fraud. After numerous transfers me kindly switched to the fax. Not even on the answering machine! Then I left a message on this site of the Moscow police. "Bee Line" told me that they gave it to his security service. The police, of course, is silent. "" The last six months I and many of my familiar to mobile phones come sms read: «Srochno pozvoni mne na etot nomer-ja ne dozvanivajusj.Esli zablokirovano-kinj, pozhalujsta, 40rublej i srazu perezvoni-u menja problema ». Receiving messages with an enviable constancy, with two rooms. I wrote about this in our statement of his, while the reaction no. My friend tried to call one of these rooms, heard the signal "Busy" and ... lost 60 rubles from the account! SMS to these numbers do not reach. The calculation is correct - the naive believe that someone of your friends is in trouble, writing from someone else's number, etc. Puts the specified number of funds (-40R.) Rings (- More 60r.) and left holding the bag. "" I had a case with MTS. Call to mob. I say, I say, Welcome to Russian radio, you've won auto. If you are over 5 minutes to call this number first prize is yours. I ask, why did I call you if I do call, he says, we have such a rule. Naturally, I did not answer. "
