PrivatBank warned about a new fraud

22.07.2021 News

PrivatBank warns users about a new fraud scheme that uses a fake website and at the same time the bank’s logo. This was reported by the press service of the Bank.

It is noted that the Bank’s security service found the site p-invest.site, which was registered by unknown individuals in the United States and which illegally uses the Bank’s logo and identity.

“According to PrivatBank’s cybersecurity experts, this site is 100% fraudulent because it uses links to non-existent investment projects and companies without their consent, as well as illegally uses the identity of the Bank and other legal entities,” PrivatBank said.

It is noted that fraudsters use a high-income offer to lure into a fraudulent project under a scheme that is unique to a fraudulent financial pyramid using social engineering and probable hacking.

“The criminal nature of the scheme is evidenced by a one-way communication channel in the project – after filling out the form by a person, the operator of the fraudulent center gets in touch to” work out “the client,” – said in a statement.

PrivatBank warns customers and Ukrainians about the danger of contact with fraudsters and participation in such projects.

It is also reported that the Bank has applied to the relevant law enforcement agencies to stop the activities of fraudsters.
