Suspect individuals involved in fraudulent call centers in Lviv, Odessa, Dnipro, and Kryvyi Rih have been apprehended by the Ukrainian Cyber Police.
The criminals obtained confidential information from Ukrainian citizens, including card details and SMS codes, to misappropriate funds. They also proposed investing in cryptocurrencies.
It is reported that the scammers called citizens pretending to be bank and mobile operator employees.
During the conversation, they lured Ukrainians and foreigners into pseudo-investment projects with extremely high returns. To gain trust, the fraudsters employed various manipulative techniques.
Law enforcement officers conducted 17 searches and discovered that approximately 800 people were working in the call centers. The Ukrainian Cyber Police seized nearly 900 computer devices, mobile phones, SIM cards, and documents.
Currently, investigative actions are being carried out to identify the organizers of the fraudulent schemes and determine the amount of damage caused. Four criminal cases have been opened for fraud.
In 2022, the Cyber Police successfully solved over 50% of cryptocurrency-related crimes. In May 2023, the National Police conducted a joint operation with the FBI to detect and neutralize illegal cryptocurrency exchanges.
