You are also advised to be more vigilant when making digital transactions. These are some of the modes that are often used by perpetrators.


Phishing


That is the modus operandi of fraudsters claiming to be from an official institution. In order to be more convincing they use information that is very similar to the official institution in question. Starting from the email, also the phone number.

It is a deception that plays a psychological side. That is when the perpetrator manipulates the victim so that the victim unconsciously obeys the perpetrator by providing important information.


Perpetrators also often plan strategies carefully, such as already gathering background information about you.


Phraming Mobile

This one scam will direct its target to visit a fake website, where the system domain entry you click will be cached.


The website can also be made as closely as possible to the official institution, so it is very likely that you will believe it. However, the perpetrators actually have installed malware so that later they can access it illegally.



Money Mule

The mode is that potential victims are informed that they win prizes but must first transfer some money for taxes. Or another example for money laundry aka money laundering.
