In February, the All-Russian Popular Front (ONF) sent a letter to the Central Bank proposing to introduce this measure, but it was only about pensioners.

The Bank of Russia, in turn, decided that this measure can be extended to citizens of all ages. As noted, the issue is currently being worked out.

The implementation of such an initiative can reduce the number of fraudsters who use social engineering methods, said the head of the Popular Front project “For the rights of borrowers” Yevgenia Lazareva.

“Before the problems of modern financial fraud, all generations are equal,” says Konstantin Ordov, head of the corporate finance and corporate governance department of the Financial University under the government of the Russian Federation.

Disabling online payments and card transfers at the request of customers can lead to insignificant losses for banks, believes Associate Professor of the Department of Economic Theory of the PRUE. G.V. Plekhanova Anna Vershinina.

Otkritie Bank does not forecast a decrease in fee and commission income. They believe that the service of disconnecting payments will be relevant for customers who rarely use online payments and transfers.
Previously, Rambler reported that scammers began to deceive through broker verification sites.
