Credit treat for scams

Lending to individuals is growing faster than the corporate borrowing market. In April, the volume of money issued to Russians for personal needs increased by 3.8 percent compared to 2.4 in the field of lending to non-financial organizations and exceeded six trillion rubles. It is not surprising that such amounts attract all kinds of crooks who want to grab at least part of such a tidbit. How often do banks face retail lending fraud? What debt schemes attract the most attention of scammers?

A Bigness correspondent addressed these questions to several of the largest Russian financial institutions that are leading in the consumer lending market – Sberbank, VTB24, Home Credit … But everywhere he was either at a loss or refused to provide data on this issue. Or, as in Raiffeisen Bank, they stated that there were no cases of fraud in their practice, as the bank’s experts meticulously check all the documents provided by the borrowers.

Bankers’ secrecy is easy to understand. Fraud for any type of loan is a painful topic for bank employees. However, this secrecy indicates the urgency of the problem.

It’s time to hold the horses on the lending market

The Ministry of Finance and the Central Bank of the Russian Federation consider it necessary to contain the rapid growth of consumer lending. The financial department, according to Deputy Minister Alexei Moiseev, supports the regulator’s proposals to tighten requirements for banks. Earlier in September, the Central Bank raised the interest rate from 8 to 8.25%, and a new increase may occur in November.

In turn, the Ministry of Economic Development believes that the increase in interest rates and the tightening the provision of funds to the economy by the monetary policy of the Central Bank significantly inhibits growth.

Since the beginning of the year, the portfolio of retail loans in the whole banking system in Russia has grown by 29.3%. At the same time, the annual growth rate was already 40%. And the volume of corporate loans increased by only 10.1%.
