The Center for Countering Disinformation at the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine warns that in Ukraine fraudsters are using a new scheme of luring money, offering mobile users to “switch” them to another “tower” and thereby allegedly provide stable communication during power outages .
Against the background of the existing problems with the communication of various mobile operators in Ukraine, fraudsters invented a new “scheme” for luring money.
Recently, as a result of a power outage, the mobile communication signal has weakened or completely disappeared, which criminals use. Fraudsters, pretending to be an employee of a mobile company, say that they will switch to another “tower” so that during outages you have a stable connection.
According to the CPD, fraudsters send a code to the subscriber’s phone, the numbers of which are asked to name, after which they gain access to mobile applications of banks, social networks, etc.
“Therefore, in no case do not transfer personal data, confirmation codes to suspicious persons! For help, contact only the hotlines of your operators: Kyivstar — 466, Vodafone — 111, Lifecell — 5433,” the message says.
