"the Police warn – a-woman is a traitor of sek 10 000"
"Then the bank id was more secure, fraudsters have found other ways to cheat people out of money."
"Now taking advantage of the bankdosor and social media."
"– They cut a Facebook account, contact your friends and say that they need help with login, says bedrägeripolisen Lotta Mauritzson."
"At the end of January was a 65-year-old woman in the vicinity of Stockholm scammed of sek 10 000 by a scammer who contacted her on Facebook. The fraudster had entered väninnans Facebook account and asked for help to log on to the bank with the help of bankdosan."
"the Method is not new but has received a boost during the winter. "
" We see a lot of this right now. We don't know if there is a new wave or if it's just a few who have succeeded with this, " says Lotta Mauritzson, brottsförebyggare at NBC, the police national bedrägericenter."
"– Many have quite bad passwords to their Facebook accounts. You often have the same password for multiple accounts. So would you come across a file with password from some hacking somewhere so one can test in a few Facebook accounts. Eventually you will get into."
"Just the fraud through Facebook is particularly insidious and difficult to fathom."
"– In that they make use of social media, they have access to much more information about the victim. So it is fairly easy for them to acquire a picture of a person."
"But there, there are even scammers who call at the home of their intended victim."
"– There are more now than in the past, but it is not the most common. For the most part pretending to be from the bank. It is also possible that purports to be from the police, but it is not jättevanligt."
"The most common approach is still to fraudsters contact their victims by phone. They seem usually to make a call from a bank and always indicates a matter of urgency. The conversation below is in many respects typical of the approach."
"Lotta Mauritzson calls for great suspicion if you are on dial-up."
" the Banks won't contact customers in this way. They do not make home visits. They do not need to contact with the customer in order to block a card, for example. It is something they can do themselves if there is reason."
"Last year was notified of 165 000 bedrägeribrott in Sweden, an increase of 13 percent from the previous year. The wave of fraud culminated in the autumn."
"– There was a reduction of completed crimes during december and January. It is about one-half since the autumn. So we have a positive trend that we hope continues in February."
"Several factors contribute to the decrease. In the autumn came a new version of the mobile bank id, which more or less stopped this type of fraud. At the same time, the police has invested heavily in crime prevention, with information on how to protect themselves."
"We think that the public generally has a better ability to resist the fraud now than what you had before," says Lotta Mauritzson. "
"– But it is still far too many who will be affected. This is something that is still ongoing and that you should warn older."
"✓ Leave never – never – out codes from the token. Bankdosan is a valuable document that should be stored in a safe place and never together with the pin code."
"✓ Use different passwords. Avoid the same passwords to Facebook and other sites. It is better to have more secure passwords than to switch a little bit easier password at regular intervals. "
"✓ Was critical. Neither the bank or the police will contact and ask you to login or give you the codes. Make sure that it is your friend who contacted you on Facebook."
"word for Word: Calls from a scammer"
"– and Hey, it's Adam here and I'm calling from the Swedbank and the Savings banks. "
"– and Hey, it's Adam here and I'm calling from the Swedbank and the Savings banks. I am looking for (the name of the called)."

"– we take This in the morning, program it. "

" have you left where?"
" I take down with me."
"– Yes, it takes you down. If you just take out the so we will fix one thing there. So we can program the new one. "
" I can't access it now."
"– You can't access it now?"
"– But then we can't program ... We need to approve you to have the new token so that we can send over information from your old box to the new box. It takes about four hours and I do in the computer through the data there. So I will send out a one-time code to your dosa where eight digits long. There is no pin codes or anything that you need to give me. It is form an eight-digit long code that you will give me which I will send to you from my data."
"– Yes, but it is not possible for I will not have access to the token now. "
" Why, you cannot access your box, if I may ask?"
" No, I'm not in the house, nah."
" You are not in the house? But as I see here when we talk ... we did ... In this the can the a gps there, and so as I look at the data, so you are talking exactly the next token. "
"– oh, Well, I understand, but it is locked up in a safe and I have not the code. "
"– But then we can see, you have the mobile bank-id."
"– then we can make use of it."
"– Yes, but it leaves I am not on the phone."
"– Then we'll see, but we do so here, that if I suspect that there is something wrong, I'll block your entire account. "
"– Yes, it makes you happy to do, I need it now."
"– Nah not just, but then block the I you there and you'll get the block up there in the morning when you come to the bank."
