The Central Bank of Russia warned of a new wave of fraud related to the issuance of digital currencies by Facebook and Telegram. Such concerns were expressed by the head of the Department for counteracting unfair practices, Valery Lyakh, at the forum "Banks of Russia-XXI century," reports Vzglyad.

 

According to him, the attackers will take advantage of the situation for the sale of counterfeit coins.

 

"I fear that the next wave will be related to attempts to sell supposedly cryptocurrencies of Telegram and Facebook before they actually come out. These are well-known company names, and scammers can take advantage of it," Lyakh said.

 

He also said that the Central Bank blocks only 10-15% of the sites of the existing financial pyramids. According to him, the adoption of a law on blocking fraudulent sites will help to fix this.

 

Let us remind that last week France and Germany said they would block the development of Libra. The State Duma stick with the same course.
