Residents of Termiz, Surkhandarya region, R.M. and U.S. appealed to Internal Affairs. They stated that they believed the message "You have become the owner of Samsung A53, pay the postage to get the prize" sent to them by the administrator of the "Winning Game" group on the Telegram messenger, and transferred 200,000 UZS to the bank card of the administrator, but they realized they were victims of fraud after the account blocked them.
