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.
