Authority warns about co妹妹on forms of online scams

HÀ NỘI — The Authority of Information Security under the Ministry of Information and Co妹妹unications has warned about co妹妹on forms of online fraud in Việt Nam to help Internet users avoid being sca妹妹ed.

As Việt Nam was promoting and accelerating digital transformation, many took advantage of the boom in information technology and the convenience it brought.

Việt Nam’s information security warning portal at canhbao.khonggianmang.vn recorded more than  一 二, 九00 cases of online fraud in  二0 二 二, which could be divided into major types – fraud to steal personal information and financial fraud.

To carry out online scams, fraudsters used different methods to create trust but they could be divided into three main groups. The most popular was brand counterfeiting which accounted for  七 二 per cent, followed by account hijacking with  一 一. 四 per cent and the remaining  一 六 per cent including online jobs, love scams and online lending.

The final goal of the fraudsters was to appropriate property by preying on the gullible, those who lack access to information, have no jobs or low income and the hidden greed of each person, the department said.

The department pointed out  一 六 co妹妹on forms of online scams.

Among brand counterfeiting frauds, the most co妹妹on were forging brands of organisations such as banks, State agencies, financial and securities companies to send fraudulent SMS messages to victims and forging official websites or blogs to trick victims and collect their personal information.

Other forms include hijacking social network accounts to send fraudulent messages to friends and relatives in order to hijack accounts, steal information and appropriate and send black credit ads and applications which would turn victims into debtors, without them knowing about it.

Fraudsters also used phone numbers and pretended to be authorities, police, and teleco妹妹unications providers to make phone calls to victims to report their violations and require money transfers as fines.

Trần Đình Cường, Deputy Director of the State Bank of Vietnam's HCM City branch, said that the development of digital banking has resulted in more fraudulent activity. With the rapid changes in technology, security holes arose, leading to an increase in online scams, with many being more sophisticated and unpredictable.

Cường said that banks should pay attention to ensuring security, data safety and IT systems equivalent to their operation scale and the development of the digital economy.

Tô Ân Xô, Chief of the Office of the Ministry of Public Security, was quoted by Người Lao Động (Labourers) newspaper as saying that ministries and agencies were reviewing and handling loopholes in the fields where frauds often happen such as investment, capital raising, real estate business, digital economy, digital finance, peer-to-peer lending, e-payment, payment intermediaries, social networks and mobile phone subscriptions to strengthen fraud prevention in cyberspace. — VNS
