Standard schemes are then used to gain access to the funds. Scammers, in particular, talk you into getting a loan or transferring money to a “secure account.”
In order not to fall into the traps of scammers, it is recommended not to disclose your personal data to third parties. If you have any questions about the safety of the money in your account, you should call the bank at the number indicated on the official website.
