Anatoly Aksakov, President of Association of Regional Banks of Russia, has introduced the amendment in the Criminal Code, called to protect the turnover of bank cards in Russia from swindlers, in the State Duma of the Russian Federation.

Anatoly Aksakov says, that one of the key problems of the card market is payment card swindling. According to the Ministry of the Interior of the Russian Federation, in 2008, the number of crimes, committed under the Article 187 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Manufacturing or selling counterfeit credit or debit cards and other documents of payment”) has increased by 31% and has exceeded 6,000 cases. At the same time, the number of people, who has been brought to book, has decreased by 14.5%.

The working group of Association of Regional Banks of Russia has prepared the project of amendments for the Article 187 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

The Article 187 is a special and unique article in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation protecting the turnover of payment cards in Russia. The existing version of the Article 187 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation has become outdated and does not protect all public relations arising in the sphere of the legal turnover of payment cards.

To solve the specified problems Association "Russia" suggests:
1) to single out crimes with documents of payment and payment cards into various articles of the Special part of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. So this Article should be divided into two articles – 187 and 187.1;
2) to specify the subject of a crime provided by existing version of the Article 187 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation – “credit, debit cards», with a new subject – “payment cards”;
3) to bring a criminal punishment for faking and dealing with a counterfeit payment card into the Article 187.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
