Lutsk's "Syla Pravdy" receives a phishing email

25.03.2024, 11:35

The Investigative Journalism Center "Syla Pravdy" received a phishing email in its inbox.

The Center's chief editor and director Yuriy Horbach reported it to the IMI representative in the Volyn oblast.

According to him, the email was sent to the editorial inbox on March 23. The message was similar to a notice from Facebook, ending with a phishing link.

The letter claimed that the "Syla Pravdy" page on facebook would be blocked for 24 hours for verification, and asked to click the button below to confirm that the page administrator was really the owner.

Yuriy Horbach noted that he had received two or three such letters.

Currently, he can not say whether this phishing email was sent due to the content published on the website.

"We have had a lot of material on various topics recently. The last investigation was about a network of companies in Lutsk issuing medical certificates without proper examinations, and the letter arrived eight days after it. Maybe it's just a coincidence, we can only guess," Yuriy Horbach said.

Previously, the administrators of several Facebook groups received messages from scammers offering them to follow a link to prevent the page from being blocked.
