Recently, scammers have been inventing new schemes of telephone deception, because phone calls are one of the most common ways to get confidential information from a confused person or force him to transfer money to a scammer's account.
One of the new types of phone fraud are calls to the chief accountants of companies from intruders who introduce themselves as UAPF employees and report on the arrest of the pension account of an employee of the company, because he/she has an arrest on transit accounts with the BIN of the company. In order to remove the arrest, accountants are invited to deposit half of the amount owed to the account of fraudsters, otherwise the company allegedly faces a fine for late crediting of pension contributions.
Thus, in the course of telephone communication, scammers provoke their victim to make large transfers to their accounts. Attackers can be located in any country in the world and often find phone numbers on the INTERNET network, find out the name and social status in social networks, through various instant messengers and services.
If you are the target of such scams, it is important to know:
• UAPF functions include advising contributors and beneficiaries on the funded pension system, attracting compulsory pension contributions, compulsory occupational pension contributions, voluntary pension contributions, personalized accounting of pension savings and making pension benefit payments;
• the completeness and timeliness of payment of pension contributions is controlled by the tax authorities, not the UAPF;
• in case of non-payment of pension contributions for a long time, UAPF employees can call contributors solely to find out the reason for non-payment and provide advice;
• UAPF employees do not have the right to demand the transfer of funds to certain accounts.
Any consultations can be obtained at UAPF branches or remotely: through multi-channel free communication by calling the call center number 1418, as well as through official pages on social networks on such popular platforms as Odnoklassniki, Telegram, Facebook, Vkontakte, Twitter and Instagram, using WhatsApp at +7 777 000 1418.
For contributors (beneficiaries) located outside the Republic of Kazakhstan, it is possible to receive advice by calling +7 (727) 356-10-60 or using the "Call Online" service posted on the Fund's corporate website.
