Fraudsters are trying to get hold of the personal data of Ukrainians. To do this, they use a fake video created on the basis of appeals from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. This is reported by the Center for Countering Disinformation.

The video was posted on the fake Facebook page Ukraine 24. In a fake appeal, the president allegedly asks Ukrainians to leave personal data and bank card numbers, since this is necessary to guarantee a payment of 8,000 hryvnias to every citizen who has registered.

"Such messages and videos are elements of fraudulent schemes aimed at taking possession of personal data and funds of gullible citizens," the message says.

Recall that earlier law enforcement officers exposed scammers who, on behalf of officials, swindled funds from entrepreneurs, allegedly for the needs of the military.
