With donations to Ukrainian causes rising – scammers aren’t very far behind. The Ukrainian government has been accepting cryptocurrency as a form of donation, but with the uncertainty and confusion behind cryptocurrency and the war, scammers have quickly latched on to create a scam to pull on the heartstrings of donors.

BBB has received reports of scammers creating social media posts or sending direct messages soliciting donations for Ukrainian relief organizations. They say all the funds raised will benefit refugees or residents of the war-torn country.
