Russians lost up to 700 thousand rubles due to a new fraud scheme

After the consent, the Russians lost large sums – up to 700 thousand rubles, reported Izvestia experts in the field of cybersecurity.

One of the scenarios of the fraudulent scheme looked like this: the victim is told that her job is to increase the rating of a particular online store. To do this, you need to make purchases at your own expense, but not for yourself. At the end of the day, both the money spent and his “earnings” are returned to the person.

For example, having made purchases for 6 thousand rubles, a person could receive 7200 rubles. Every day the amounts increased. But when they reached tens or hundreds of thousands, the return of money stopped and citizens lost money.

Experts believe that it will be extremely difficult for the mentioned companies to identify intruders, but they are trying to warn users against rash actions when looking for a job or additional income.
