The ban on Russian social networks: gaining momentum a new type of fraud

Запрет российских соцсетей: набирает обороты новый вид мошенничестваü fines.
[/b]Fraudsters previously extorted money from Internet users for allegedly viewing and disseminating pornography to them, promptly responded to the ban on Russian social networks in Ukraine.

And are now trying to force users to pay “fines” per visit “Vkontakte”, “Classmates” and other banned in Ukraine, the Russian Internet resources.

So, the lawyer Alexander Krivorchuk posted on Facebook a scan of him came messages from some “cyber-Police of the city of Kiev”. The message indicates that the addressee filed an administrative action for use of VPN (Internet-a technology that allows the user to visit sites which are blocked from access provider). And offered to pay 500 hryvnias of a penalty. In case of failure to pay, the extortionists threaten to report the “offender” “in prokuroturu for darnisha razgledanja”.

Along with grammatical mistakes the attackers made and the actual gross. So, users report that they violated article 301 and 304 of the Criminal code of Ukraine. But these articles (pornography and the involvement of minors in criminal activity), are subject to criminal, not administrative responsibility, and also does not provide for liability for the use of VPN technology.

[/b]As told the press Secretary of the Department of postal and telecommunications Julia Kvitko, they sending such notifications do not include police records and investigates violations, and penalties imposed by the court and other authorities. But most importantly, Internet users do not bear any responsibility neither for the visit sanctioned sites, nor for the use of the widespread and legitimate VPN technologies. The postal and telecommunications offers to anyone who receives such an alert, report the incident to local police units. You can also do this on the website of postal and telecommunications cybercrime.gov.ua in a special form of feedback. And at a special address block@cybercrime.gov.ua you can report on the continued activities of the websites to which access should be blocked.
