Residents of Kropyvnytskyi organized a fake financial exchange that defrauded its investors.

In the Kirovograd region, cyber-police officers stopped the illegal activities of the “financial exchange”, the participants of which illegally took depositors’ money. This was reported on August 22 by the press service of the National Police of Ukraine.

Residents of Kropyvnytsky organized a “financial exchange” that defrauded its investors. Fraudsters offer to invest in financial transactions. However, investors not only received a profit, but lost their money. The established amount of damage exceeded 500 thousand hryvnias.

Law enforcement officials have identified a 21-year-old man who created and populated the web portal of a fake trading exchange to simulate trading activities. The “exchange” brokerage company is allegedly registered in one of the islands of the Pacific state, and its main office is in one of the European capitals. The man involved his acquaintances in illegal activities.

The defendants suggested that clients create a personal account and invest in trading activities that should bring high profits. For the purpose of secrecy, the attackers, using special software, are equipped with “workplaces” in their own areas.

Clients do not suspect that they are really dealing with scammers and have no prospects of returning their funds. After transferring the contributions to bank accounts controlled by the defendants, the money was not returned to the depositors.

Law enforcement officers conducted searches of the offenders’ residences. “Draft” records, computer equipment, mobile phones and dozens of bank cards used in illegal activities were confiscated.
