Attention to digital fraud in full closure!


The 17-day full closure announced by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan the other day begins tomorrow at 19.00. Saying that many families will prefer online shopping methods during this period, Cyber ​​Security Expert Osman Demircan warned citizens against the risk of phishing fake shopping sites, so-called Ramadan aid fraudsters and people for the information to work.

FAKE SITES MAY STEAL YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION

Calling people to ‘be alert’, Demircan said, “In 17-day full closure, it is necessary to pay attention to cyber hygiene. We turned to the internet for shopping in the pandemic. Fake sites will appear that want to take advantage of this in full closure. Because there will be a serious increase in demand. They will be on the lookout to steal citizens’ credit cards and personal information. The main citizens need to be awake, ”he said.

USE THE MOBILE APPLICATION OF SHOPPING SITES

Directing people to use mobile applications, Demircan said, “Always shop from the sites you use and know. “If the shopping platforms you use have mobile applications, use them because hackers can open fake sites but cannot fake mobile applications.”

DO NOT GIVE THE COMPANY COMPUTER TO YOUR CHILD

Osman Demircan said, “Companies will give computers to their employees working from home. There is a serious risk here. If we hand over the company computer to our child, sites that should not have entered may enter and download games that should not have been downloaded. As such, your computer will be hacked. Hacking your computer means malicious people accessing your office to access company data. In this case, your company could also be hacked. “Do not use the company computer for any other purpose, do not give it to your child.”

DON’T BREAK OUT THE ‘CLICK IF YOU WANT PRIORITY DURING THE VACCINATION’

Emphasizing that phishing attacks will manifest themselves, Demircan said, “Because, for example, the vaccination period of people continues. People will receive too many text messages, e-mails. They can also write to you from their social media accounts. The content of these messages will be like ‘it’s your turn to vaccination’, ‘Click if you want priority during the vaccination’, ‘Ministry of Health can make you any payment, enter your information to check’, ‘Click the link if you want to take advantage of the payment’. Actually, this is a complete phishing attack. These attacks target personal data, information on phones and tablets. Delete such links without clicking them. “If the state is going to give such a message, it will either use the television channels or make a statement on the e-government.”

CRYPTO MONEY FRAUD

Drawing attention to the crypto money fraud, Demircan said, “Too many people have lost money, many of them are about to lose money. During the time spent at home, we consider crypto money as an investment tool, and we search for new exchanges and enter. On the Internet, evil spreads faster than good. If a platform is fraudulent, copies will surely come out, be careful. There will also be phishing attacks in this direction, ”he said.

DON’T BELIEVE THOSE WHO CALL YOU AND TELL YOUR IDENTITY INFORMATION

Saying that very serious data has been stolen from social media accounts or shopping sites recently, Demircan said, “These stolen data were served to very small numbers. Thus, the number of malicious people increased. There may be plans for any unpredictable attack currently being made. So if someone calls you on the phone, sends a message, or reaches out on social media, do not give credit if they tell you your serious credentials and try to deceive you. You can be of all your money at the point you believe in. “You can have all of your bank account information stolen,” he said.

SCAMMER, TELEVISION, HEADPHONE SCAMS

Stating that the technology has been invested a lot in the pandemic, Demircan said, “Because we purchased devices with serious costs such as robot bluetooth headsets, vacuum cleaners and televisions in order to make good use of the time we stayed at home. In order to bring the continuity of sales, fraudsters can reduce the price of products from a thousand lira to 300 lira, pretending that there are campaigns and bring people to the hook. Pay close attention to this in technology products, the price of any product can go up to 10-15 percent. 50 percent discount is a serious figure. “Shop at internet markets that have the stamp of trust provided by the state.”

RAMADAN AID SCAMS

Demircan said, “Attacks targeting those who want to get Ramadan aid and do it are on the agenda. A link you click says that you can get money into your bank account in return for the Ramadan package, all of which are fraudulent. You may be asked for your credit card information like ‘If you want to help, make a deposit to this address’, be careful. There are organizations that the state provides opportunities for aid. There are also private institutions known to help you. It is very important that the citizen does not respect any message sent outside of known institutions ”.
