In 2022, nearly 6,000 names of unauthorized sites or actors have been added to blacklists! Nearly 942 cases of identity theft were detected.
The increase in the volume of these thefts is accompanied by an improvement in the techniques used, making the fraud increasingly difficult for users to detect: concealment of the email addresses used, telephone calls from false numbers, collection of information personal information allowing users to be distracted.
