Luring money for the Armed Forces: scammers organized a scam on behalf of Oleksandr Polozhinskyi. Photo

Polozhynskyi shows how scammers deceive Ukrainians with his photo

The former leader of the Ukrainian band Tartak, and since the beginning of the full-scale war, a soldier of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Oleksandr Polozhynskyi, shared an extremely unpleasant situation: the artist's photo is being used to raise funds for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The hero showed the profile of a user named Vladyslav Babiy, who promises to tell "the truth about the situation near Avdiivka."

The musician claims that the author of the page with his photo is a fraudster who has been seen in comments on various Ukrainian channels. A corresponding post appeared on the star's Facebook page.

"This is not the first time fraudsters have used my photo. I don't know how to deal with it. Sometimes people who have been fooled by them come to me later. It seems that I am not such a brave soldier. What is it that attracts them to my photos?" asked Oleksandr Polozhynskyi.

In response, his followers joked that the artist's eyes in the photo were kind and easy to believe. At the same time, many were outraged that a photo of a famous singer, whom many Ukrainians know by sight, was used for an ungentlemanly purpose.

"How can one not recognize you, Sasha, and think that you are a different person?" "He must have taken the photo from open sources," "Fraudsters are understandable. More questions to our citizens who do not know famous Ukrainians by sight", "How can you be so stupid as to use a photo of a famous singer", Ukrainians said.

Other users confirmed that they had seen comments from this account on Telegram, and some even managed to block the so-called Vladyslav for fraudulent actions.

By the way, earlier the cyber police gave effective advice to help protect themselves from fraudsters. This should be known to all Ukrainians who want to donate to the Armed Forces to strangers.
