Watch out for fraudulent calls for donations

Criminals are shamelessly abusing the population’s helpfulness at the moment, using fake e-mails to get their hands on donated funds or credit card information.

Time and again cyber-criminals are trying to exploit the good faith of consumers for their fraudulent activities. No difference with the current Ukraine conflict either: The authorities warn of alledged news information and calls for donations sent out via e-mails with the sole aim to squeeze money out of helpful users.

Some mails even contain malware such as banking Trojans or links to phishing websites where users are asked to enter their credit card or bank account details which are then abused by these fraudsters.

It is always best not to react to any calls for donation received via e-mail or telephone calls, but to only ever support charities via their official websites and account numbers.
