Cybercrime, new Russia-Gazprom themed email scam

New Russia-Gazprom themed email scam. The lure is a request for transfer $68 million from an American bank to the victim personal bank account, due to the international sanctions following invasion of Ukraine

Gazprom and it’s CEO Viktor Zubkov are the baits of a new cyber scam spreading worldwide. An email asks the victim the consent for transfer $68 million from an American bank to his personal bank account, due to the international sanctions following the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The goal of the cybercrime operation is to steal money in two ways: lure the user to communicate his personal bank/financial data and ask him to make a small payment to unfreeze the money transfer. The scam scheme is always the same, as seen in periodical similar requests from African heirs and other actors.
