Fraudsters, who introduce themselves as volunteers of the community initiative “Restoring Donbas”, collect the numbers of bank cards and PIN-codes of IDPs. It was reported by IDPs via the hotline of the initiative.
Center of advisory help to IDPs has received information that a man is calling people and residents of Donbas, introduces himself as a representative of community initiative “Restoring Donbas”, asks for the number of bank card and PIN-code for transfer of UAH 1000 assistance.
We would like to inform you that this is a provocation or a case of fraud. Community initiative “Restoring Donbas” has nothing in common.
In addition, we would like to ask you to be careful. Let us recall, if you were offered to provide assistance via bank card, you would name only your card number. Efforts of finding out your card expiration date, CVV (three digits on the back of the card), PIN-code, your name or the amount of money on the card – one of the indicators of the fraud!
