Scammers steal money using names of famous analysts
Fraudsters use the names of famous financial analysts, who often sound in the media when trying to steal money from bank cards.
Banks warn Russians about new fraud. Fraudsters use the names of famous financial analysts, who often sound in the media when trying to steal money from bank cards. At the same time, the names of financiers are not disclosed, so as not to aggravate their reputation damage.
The names of well-known analysts are used to gain confidence in Russians who are interested in investments. After that, culprits recommend making a transfer to a brokerage account of a pseudo-investment company, for example, to the non-existent Alfacapital Capital, in tune with Alfa Capital Asset Management. After an investment, the pseudo-expert disappears.
In another case, a pseudo-analyst offers his assistance in returning funds to Russians who have invested in non-existent investment platforms and want to return them: Alldayoption, Binarium and GlobalFXm.
Sometimes fraudsters call on behalf of Global Investments with reference to well-known analysts. “Banking analysts never contact private customers over the phone, do not consult on investments, and do not offer their assistance,” bank experts warn.
