This was announced by Ekaterina Semerikova, head of research at the Skolkovo-NES Center for the Study of Financial Technologies and Digital Economy. So, according to the specialist, the danger of “dead” bank cards is that they can charge a commission for them.
“The risks of such cards mainly lie in the fact that some of them may charge a commission, which the client may not know or forget about. Now more and more cards appear where one of the conditions of free service is the minimum amount of transactions that must be made during the billing period “, – shared Semerikova.
In addition, the owners of such cards may not understand that their personal data is stored by the bank. This can lead to unwanted calls from the bank with various offers. But what is more dangerous, in the event of a leak, the customer’s personal data will end up in the hands of fraudsters.
