The National Police urged citizens to beware of scammers posing as bank employees to steal credit card data.
This is the new form of theft called The Tale of the Bank Employee, a method by which unscrupulous people come to the homes of their victims to gain their trust.
They are first identified with documentation from the bank. “They can even give away something or a key chain from the bank,” explained a representative of the High Technology Division (Divindat) of the PNP to Latina.
Once they achieve their first purpose with gifts, prize promises, bonuses, or memberships, the scammer requests the credit card to be renewed.
“People think they are from the bank. When they obtain the secret keys, bank transfers are given, when only the cards are taken, the ‘carding’ is given, which is internet purchases ”, the agent explained.
He carding is the illegitimate use of cards to make purchases for the Internet. It is a practice that is growing in recent months, according to the Police.
It is recommended to be careful, since no financial or banking entity requests users’ cards or personal data. In turn, it is suggested to call the bank’s platforms to verify if benefits are being provided.
Divindat agents found cases in San Martín de Porres, Los Olivos and the Center of Lima. Two gangs were captured, including the Cyber Bankers.
