Armenian Central Bank’s financial monitoring center warns people of e-mail and SMS fraud

YEREVAN, April 16. /ARKA/. Armenian Central Bank’s financial monitoring center warns people of e-mail and SMS fraud, the central bank’s press office reports.

Such e-mail and SMS messages contain lucrative offers.

These offers can be symbolically divided into three groups.

The first group consists of offers to invest money in stocks of a foreign company with 100% annual profitability or buy some precious thing at a symbolic price.

Very commonplace are also offers to buy goods, which allegedly can be bought only by transferring money through Internet.

The second group includes offers to open banking accounts and receive money through swift systems, then transfer it through this account where swindlers say.

The third group of messages reported about alleged inheritance or a prize won by an addressee.

For getting them, he/she has to pay a certain sum of money.

As a rule, all these messages propose to transfer money for settling some organizational matters.

The center urged people who receive such messages to call by phone or send e-mail.

Phone numbers are (101) 54-50-88 and (010) 56-16-01.

E-mail address is info_fiu@cba.am.

Anonimity is guaranteed. -0---
