Odintsov pensioners were told about the danger of financial pyramids

“We will talk about financial pyramids, about how to protect yourself from their impact. And how it is possible to prevent subsequent negative consequences, or somehow reduce them. It may be possible to announce this so that other people who may fall into the financial pyramid could be saved, ”said Roman Kryukov, an expert in the department for combating illegal activities of the Main Directorate of the Bank of Russia in the Central Federal District.

At a meeting with members of the Active Longevity Club, the expert spoke about the followers of the infamous MMM organizer Sergei Mavrodi. The lecturer also mentioned the most common psychological tricks of fraudsters.

“We came with pleasure to participate in this meeting, because we understand that it is very useful. Especially for the elderly, because they are very trusting, kind and often victims of both scammers and these financial pyramids,” Olga Yasunova, a member of the Active Longevity club, shared her impressions of the lecture.

Before interacting with a company, experts recommend always checking its legality. This can be done on the website of the Bank of Russia. It also contains information about the license and a warning list of organizations with identified signs of illegal activity. This list is updated daily.

Earlier, Governor Andrey Vorobyov said that more than 25,000 beneficiaries from the Moscow region will rest in Russian sanatoriums this year.
