New scam in Ukraine war

Be care careful. Now there is a new type of SCAM. They send out letters asking for help to take the family out of the war zones in the East of Ukraine. Do not send money to such scammers, especially cryptocurrencies!

Here is an example of such a letter:



help us get out of eastern ukraine

hello sir/ma,

please I am desperate to get my family out of eastern Ukraine town of
Stanytsia Luhanska.

please there is sporadic but heavy artillery gun shelling, and my
kid’s kindergarten was hit.

please, send me any amount you can to help me bribe the authorities to
smuggle us out. i cannot watch my wife and kids go through this agony
any more.

please whatever you can, send as bitcoin. They say that is the only
currency they will accept.

here is the wallet address:

please pray for our safety.
hurry, hurry, hurry
please the above is not my email address, do not reply.

God bless you.
