What are the scams of embezzlers on INSS retirees
There are several scams that are used by criminals to obtain values, or to use some credit through the benefit. Among them there are the information scams, scam of the arrears of the INSSpayroll loan scam, cloned card scam, social security audit scam, among other forms.
INSS arrears coup
In such cases, the scammer contacts the victim requesting some data, so that delayed benefits are released more quickly. Then they request the person’s documents and request a type of deposit that does not exist, so that the amount is released. Thus, he obtains privileged information to obtain the values.
Payroll loan scam (INSS retirees and pensioners)
This type of scam is linked to banking institutions, in which they send an amount of money to the INSS beneficiary’s account without their permission, improperly charged for that amount that was not requested, using a payroll loan and debiting the installments in the amount received by the taxpayer. Causing relevant problems in the assets of these people.
Cloned card scam
The cloned card scam is one of the favorites among criminals. With it, privileged information is obtained from the elderly, such as bank details and even their password.
With the information in hand, the scammer sends a motoboy to withdraw the card, and with all the information in hand, they use it to make purchases, undue loans, and even withdrawals from accounts.
Pension audit scam
Another very common means among social security audit criminals. In this category of extortion, scammers send documents pretending to be a false “General Social Security Audit”, making a call for a kind of ransom.
Generally, the documents have information about what the taxpayer is entitled to in cash redemptions, almost always informing that they are amounts owed to participants in the savings portfolio that would have been deducted from the payroll as a supplementary retirement.
