Fraudsters came up with another criminal scheme to get personal data of bank card holders. Against the backdrop of increasing reports of leaks of such data, they offer to check their card details on allegedly special sites for this.

In fact, in this way, users simply give personal information into the hands of attackers.

According to Roskachestvo, advertising of such portals began to appear in telegram channels.

After getting to such a site, the user is prompted to enter the number, atu and other data of his bank card. After that, at best, this information will simply get into the database, at worst, the user will lose money.

According to digital literacy experts, there is no official service for checking compromised card data, and it is extremely dangerous to provide them to third parties.

It's worth reminding that at the beginning of the month, the information security service of the Yandex.Food food delivery service revealed a leak of user data, but it did not touch logins and passwords, as well as payment and registration data. Customer phone numbers and information about orders have been shared.

The service sent apology messages to its customers by e-mail, acknowledging that their order data and phone numbers were indeed made public.
