Brand Protection Case
A criminal group, acting since 2015, creates clones of official websites of Russian manufacturers and suppliers with replaced contact details. After a fraudulent website is created, criminals try to attract users to the fraudulent resource using spam mailouts and targeted announcements on the Internet. Criminals make website visitors pay for a fake goods supply and immediately disappear.
Fraudsters abusing well-known brands mislead clients from official resources and cause significant damage to companies making them apologize to customers.
In addition to standard fraud monitoring and blockage services, 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.
