Fraudsters began to steal funds more often through the Fast Payment System, which is being developed by the Central Bank. In March, the number of such deceptions increased, exceeding the February figures by several times.

According to Kommersant, fraudsters are increasingly stealing funds, rubbing themselves into the trust of bank customers. They also use fake sites on the Internet, offering to pay for goods using a QR-code in the Fast Payment System, but these codes lead to scammers' accounts.

Now the attackers, who used to steal money from bank cards using social engineering, have switched to this type of fraud - from the SBP. This may become a serious problem this year, since financial institutions do not always check the trade and service enterprises connected to the Fast Payment System. At the same time, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation now requires banks to block a company's account if it cannot verify it.
