Brand Protection Case
A criminal group, acting since 2015, creates fake websites impersonating Russian manufacturers and suppliers, substituting only contact details. After a fraudulent website is created, criminals try to attract users to the fraudulent resource using spam mailouts and targeted advertising in search engines. The goal is to pretend supplying goods and then quickly disappear once the money is collected.
Cyber-fraudsters mislead clients from official resources, and can seriously damage reputation of legitimate manufacturers, forcing them to manage complaints of potential customers.
In addition to standard fraud monitoring and blockage activity, CERT-GIB has competencies to identify owners of illegitimate resources, and in some cases block not only websites but also phone numbers and emails used to commit fraud.
