OREANDA-NEWS Experts spoke about the rapid increase in the number of frauds using a simple electronic signature in Russia. According to the Microfinance and Development organization, this year the number of microloans issued in this way was three times more than in the past.

According to experts, the peak of such crimes came at the end of 2018. Often, Russians will learn about loans issued in their name after they begin to demand debt.

According to experts, the problem of illegal processing of loans will exist in the country as long as there is a black market in the Russian Federation for personal data, Izvestia writes.

Earlier it became known that in Russia they plan to change the electronic signature on the fingerprint. One of the reasons is the convenience of using the services themselves and their popularization. And the second reason is the methods of identification.
