“In the new scheme, fraudsters call by mobile phone and, on behalf of a bank employee, report an alleged delay in a mortgage loan. If a person does not have a mortgage, the call is interrupted. And if there is, then, despite objections, the attackers continue to convince the potential victim about problems with the bank that must be urgently resolved,” VTB said in a statement.

The attackers also claim that data on overdue payments is available in the Credit History Bureau. They ask for your SNILS number and the code that is sent via SMS. Upon receiving these data, fraudsters log in to the state portal and personal accounts of online banks, apply for loans and withdraw money from current accounts.

VTB urged to carefully study each fraudulent scenario and share information with family and friends.
