FRAUD MAKES AOL CUT DIRECT ACCESS FOR RUSSIAN USERS

By CBR Staff Writer

America Online Inc has cut direct access for its users in Russia because too many people were signing on to the service using stolen credit cards and passwords, as well as other fraudulent means. America Online subscribers can still access their accounts, but must now get to them via an account on one of the Russian Internet services such as Glasnet, Russian Online or Matrix. Local phone numbers in 40 Russian cities that subscribers used to access the service were blocked on December 14.
