A new type of fraud has arisen in Russia. Attackers fake banknotes specifically for ATMs.

According to TASS, fraudsters stick a special tape on a fake bill so that the technique reads the banknote as real. After the "replenishment" of the account, the amount fraudulently deposited by fraudsters is removed with real banknotes, but at a different ATM. The Prosecutor General’s Office explained that a crime is detected only after the money is recalculated at an ATM.

In 2019, almost 19 thousand crimes in the banking sector were registered in Russia. The damage from the actions of the attackers amounted to 154 billion rubles.
