the Financial Conciliation Board handles more and more cases, because the number of cyber fraud cases has increased by leaps and bounds. This year, 319 new cyber fraud cases came before the board, which is more than ten times as many as in 2018, the year of the first such cases. The board is a fast and free dispute settlement forum, an alternative to civil litigation courts, and helps to reach an agreement with the financial institution in case of a financial settlement dispute of residential customers.
