The attacker took advantage of the technical nuances of ATMs.

Employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in the Khabarovsk Territory detained a 23-year-old native of Nikolaevsk-on-Amur, suspected of involvement in a series of thefts from citizens' bank accounts.

According to the press service of the department, the attacker acted in different parts of the city, mainly in large shopping centers and shops. He chose ATMs, where there were small queues, and then using a contactless bank card, he transferred money to a phone number, but did not complete the transaction and left. The person following the fraudster inserted his bank card and the system automatically completed the previous operation and debited the amount from the victim’s account.

In the future, the suspect through electronic payment systems transferred the stolen funds to his account or to a friend's card and cashed.

During the search at the place of residence of the suspect, bank cards, electronic data carriers, SIM-cards, as well as mobile phones were seized. The preliminary amount of damage is estimated at 50 thousand rubles. A criminal case was initiated against a young man under Part 3 of Art. 158 of the Criminal Code ("Theft"). The article provides for a maximum sentence of up to 6 years in prison.
