The Ministry of agrarian policy and food said that in recent times businesses have began to obtain suspicious emails on behalf of the Ministry.
As noted, messages are sent with a bogus address firstname.lastname@example.org with the theme “Get a subsidy under the state support of agriculture”.
“The letter says that the appropriate business entity is selected as a potential candidate for funding. To do this, the scammers offer to download and complete the questionnaire. Probably the downloaded file contains a virus program”, – stated in the message.
“For its part, the Ministry of agrarian policy says that such mailing was not carried out, and calls immediately to remove such letters,” – said the press service.
The Ministry of Agriculture also said that the official email address of the Ministry is email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org and information about state support programmes will be published on the official website http://minagro.gov.ua.
We will remind, the Ministry of agrarian policy at the end of 2018 paid to farmers 4,166 billion programme of state support of agroindustrial complex.
Previously, farmers stated that the mechanism of distribution of state funds actually leaves the farmers without help.
