Gift card “Pyaterochka” at half price: in Russia came up with a new scheme of deception

Security experts said that in the first week of December, many phishing sites with a new deception scheme appeared on the Internet. Victims are offered to buy gift cards from Pyaterochka, Perekrestok, Lenta and other popular stores at half price.

According to experts, scammers have created over 20 phishing sites. They offer gift cards with a 50% discount. In fact, the goal of the scammers is to steal your money.

Experts noted that attackers are getting more active before the New Year. The number of fake shops, as a rule, increases by 20-30%; fake promotional codes are also offered. Now scammers have begun to create not only fake websites, but also Telegram channels.

All recently discovered sites are designed according to the same template: the header explains that the action is carried out out of the desire of the trading network to help each customer. Fraudsters write that the number of discounted cards is limited: supposedly no more than a thousand. The victim is promised to call back after payment and deliver the card by courier.
