ETC promotion wave, block chain technology fever, Qingyu year hot broadcast, double 11 floor building screen ... You must be familiar with these hot events in 2019, but what you may not know is that these hot scammers have also chased them.
On January 7, 360 Enterprise Security Group and 360 Hunting Network Platform released the "2019 Cyber Fraud Trends Research Report" (hereinafter referred to as the report), which for the first time systematically disclosed many "fancy hot spots" scams in 2019.
"Most hurtful" 蹭 hot spot : Blockchain scams lose 130,000 per capita
Among these scams, the most destructive to the victim's money bag is the "blockchain" hot spot scam. The report shows that from the perspective of per capita losses caused by various types of financial fraud, the per capita loss caused by virtual currency fraud is the highest at 134,522 yuan.
It is reported that virtual currency scams are mainly in the name of "blockchain", "digital currency", "bitcoin" and "mining" to induce victims to launch various so-called "coin" and "chain" high-yield technology investments The project is essentially a scammer who follows the trend and catches the spotlight, and uses the popular concept in the market to cheat. Because these virtual currency investments are large, the per capita losses caused are also high. As early as 2017, domestic virtual currency trading and related exchanges were stopped by regulation, but with the recent state's explicit support for blockchain technology, scammers have begun to cheat on hot spots.
It is worth noting that, in the top ten scams for cyber fraud in 2019 summarized in the report, "Blockchain application scenarios have landed, and XX coins can also make a lot of money lying down" are also on the list.

"Drag racing " chasing hotspots : blocking ETC phishing sites 80,000 times per 360 days
The "hand speed" of scammers chasing hot spots is also staggering. During the National Two Sessions in March this year, the "Government Work Report" proposed that "the provincial toll stations on highways will be basically canceled within two years to achieve fast toll collection without parking." Liars spotted this trend and took the opportunity to weave "ETC scams."
According to the report, recently, various banks are promoting ETC business. After some users apply for ETC, they have received a text message: "Dear owner, your ETC review process has not been completed. Please click the link below to complete as soon as possible. Send 200 yuan. "After seeing the last sentence," 200 yuan for immediate delivery ", the user became suspicious and asked the bank to learn that it was a scam text message.
In addition to the above cases, some users also reported to the hunting platform, saying that they received a text message asking users to log in to a website with "ETC system updated, and secondary information needs to be authenticated in time." The URL is actually a phishing site.
The report states that "ETC scams mainly send information such as" secondary authentication "and" incomplete auditing "through disguised phone numbers to induce victims to hang on."
According to the 360 hunting platform monitoring, the average daily blocking volume of phishing websites posing as ETC in the second half of this year was as high as 70,000-80,000 times. The hunting net reminds that you must go to formal channels for business, if you have any questions, you can call the bank's official telephone for consultation.
"Traffic - grabbing " rampant hotspots : Double 11 scammers build " mirage towers "
Liars will naturally not be overlooked during the National Consumer's Day such as Double Eleven. The report said that during the Double 11 this year, hunting nets received reports. According to the victim, he was attracted by a “building building” activity launched by an online shopping platform. The activity was based on the PK of two teams and the victory and defeat were measured according to the height and level of the floor covered. The larger the amount. In order to get more people's help, many "like-minded" strangers formed a mutual help group.
When the victim was worried about surpassing the opponent to reach the "building goal" as soon as possible, he saw a message in a mutual help group that "can help build a building, steal a tower, and intend to add WeChat or QQ to communicate". . Then we added the other party's WeChat according to the message. After receiving the guarantee that the other party "successful payment can help build the building, and can also win the championship." Student Zhao sent the link to the other party and transferred 8 yuan via WeChat. However, after payment, the other party will no longer reply to any news from Zhao. Regardless of the small amount of being cheated, under the huge traffic of Double 11, the scammer suddenly found the fertile ground for becoming rich.
In fact, during the Double Eleven years, scammers will make new scripts to cheat based on the official activities of the big platform, which is often difficult to distinguish between true and false. After the peak shopping period, scammers will also scam with refund scams. Consumers should rationally treat the activities of Double Eleven in the online shopping platform, so as not to make a big mistake.
