Alexey Sizov, head of the anti-fraud department at Jet Infosystems, said that on New Year's holidays, fraudsters use both special and traditional schemes to deceive citizens. In an interview with Sputnik radio, the specialist revealed exactly which means are used by the attackers.

The analyst warned that fake online gift sites are a classic holiday scam scheme. Phishing sites copy the original ones, on which Russians usually choose gifts, electronics and expensive goods for New Year's promotions. At the same time, the goods are not delivered, and fraudsters receive money for them.

In addition, cybercriminals have increased the number of attacks on Russian bank accounts.
