Experts talked about a new way to steal money from bank cards that scammers found. They use special card2card services and social engineering techniques. Dozens of Russians have already become victims of criminals.

How told "Izvestia" information security experts from different banks, the card2card transfer system assumes that the client enters the card number from which he wants to withdraw money and the card number that he wants to credit to. The sender receives an SMS with a code to confirm the operation. It is by all means that scammers are trying to find out. As a rule, they call and introduce themselves as bank employees. Having deduced the code, the attackers receive money in a virtual account, and then transfer it to real "plastic", thereby "sweeping" the traces.

Experts advise customers of banks not to show their card numbers to strangers. In addition, it is worth remembering that only scammers can request a phone code to confirm a banking transaction.
