Moneyveo urges to hide personal data in ProZorro system to prevent frauds
Moneyveo micro-financial organization has said that access to personal data in the ProZorro e-procurement system should be restricted, as frauds using these data were recorded.
"We are actively working with law enforcement agencies to find fraudsters, who used personal data of participants of the ProZorro system. There is a separate question to the ProZorro system, where personal data are available to everyone, without exceptions," Moneyveo Marketing Director Maksym Paraska wrote on his Facebook page in response to a statement of the co-founder of DroneUA, Valeriy Yakovenko, about a fraud with his personal data.
"The Internet site Moneyveo.UA has issued a loan to third parties who have signed a contract in my name. I learned about this by chance... The contract is available in the documents posted on the ProZorro website," Yakovenko wrote.
"And what was my surprise when I discovered that two preferential overdrafts on my cards for a total round amount just evaporated. That is, the entire credit history accumulated by my salary, millions of hryvnias of taxes paid, has sunk into oblivion," he added.
The co-founder of DroneUA said that, perhaps, when signing up an online contract, no reconciliation of the name of the bank card holder and the name indicated in the documents provided occurred.
"For some time we had the opportunity to receive a loan to the card to bearer. But now there is no such a possibility. We have implemented a reconciliation of the cardholder of many banks and the applicant. Everything happens automatically," Paraska said.
In turn, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Trade Maksym Nefyodov said that hiding personal data in the e-procurement system will lead to an increase in corruption risks: "This opens up more direct and obvious ways to frauds during tenders. Therefore, we firmly adhere to the idea that all information should be open."
