In Italy, criminals are trying to get money using a cunning method: they use QR codes to damage parked cars. There is a new word for this type of fraud. It was created from the words QR and Phishing (fishing). suppression The term refers to an activity aimed at obtaining sensitive data.
One variation is that the scammer leaves a post on the victim's car with the name of the local municipality. The paper looks quite original, because it shows the traffic violation, the reference to the relevant article of the traffic regulations, as well as the amount to be paid and the QR code, which was reported. vezess.hu Quoted from the Italian newspaper Le Iene.
After scanning the QR code, a fake interface simulating the police page appears on the victim's phone. The page asks for first and last name, credit card number, security code, and other information. Whoever gives this money belongs to it. Computer consultant Paolo Dal Cecco told the Italian newspaper:
QR codes download software that can transfer money, lock your smartphone, demand ransom, eavesdrop on conversations, and more.
The solution might be to Google the police website and see what their interface actually looks like.
