1. Introduction
The banking system, which operates to ensure price-policy stability,
support for national currency, organization and operation of the international
payment system, is given a special place in the international economy.
One of the important tasks is to protect bank clients and most people with
the use of internet banking systems and credit cards from crimes committed in

Internet fraud by using online services as well as network-access software
applications.
