Be careful with crypto donations | #socialmedia | #hacking | #aihp

With donations to Ukrainian causes rising – scammers aren’t very far behind. The Ukrainian government has been accepting cryptocurrency as a form of donation, but with the uncertainty and confusion behind cryptocurrency and the war in Ukraine, scammers have quickly latched on to this information to create a new scam to pull on the heart strings of donors.

BBB has received reports of scammers creating social media posts or sending direct messages soliciting donations for Ukrainian relief organizations. They say all the funds raised will benefit refugees or residents of the war-torn country. They ask for donations in the form of cryptocurrency – which they say is the preferred payment of the Ukrainian government. The trick comes when the donation is sent to the scammer’s cryptocurrency wallet instead of the official Ukrainian government wallet. And donors may never even know the funds land in the pocket of a scammer instead of helping those in need.
