YAKUTSK, Nov. 11. Telephone scammers began sending messages to potential victims allegedly on behalf of the head of the Mirny district of Yakutia, Alexander Basyrov, the head of the district said in his Telegram.
“”Friends, it has become known that scammers are operating on my behalf in instant messengers, distributing messages with similar content. Under various pretexts, scammers enter into dialogue in order to find out personal information,” the official said.
Basyrov explained that he had not changed his phone number for many years.
“”If you received an unusual message “from me” and the number is not in your contacts or it is hidden, do not conduct dialogues in the messenger! Conduct an explanatory conversation with older people – your relatives or neighbors – they most often become victims scammers,” the head of the district warned residents.
