A fraudster collecting money for a fake charity to treat seriously ill children in Tashkent was caught

On February 8, 2021, an anonymous person downloaded photos of a child who died of a brain tumour in Ukraine and two children who were unidentified and seriously ill in order to gain wealth on the Internet by cheating and abusing trust.

She posted fake charity announcements on several social networks asking for help from the public by showing bank plastic cards 8600 ... 5611 and 8600 ... 4430 to receive money.
