Fraudsters are trying to make money amid the coronavirus pandemic and the fight against it. In particular, at the beginning of this week the number of spam mails allegedly on behalf of the World Health Organization (WHO) has increased. The letters speak of fundraising for COVID-19 Funds worldwide.

Specialists of the portal SICP.ueba.su analyzed one of these letters, which was sent from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. It turned out that the second-level domain is actually used by WHO, but it was this letter that was sent from a mail server located in the state of Colorado in the United States of America and in transit passed through a reference mailer in the German municipality of Mauern.

Experts also learned that a link to a picture with a QR code (the address of a bitcoin wallet for donations) leads the reader directly to the portal of the investment company Five Stand Capital, located in the US city of Atlanta from Georgia. As follows from the official information on the company's website, it is a partner of large US investment funds in the United States. The portal itself is hosted by GoDaddy in Oregon (Portland). Still there are three site mirrors - for various domain zones.

This email was first sent from the SendGrid.net mail server, which is also located on GoDaddy’s resources in Colorado, Denver. And, judging by the information bases, another 13 resources are located on this IP address, nevertheless, only one of them is displayed - a web-based mail gateway.

It is important to consider that on the official website of the WHO there is no way to donate funds in the form of cryptocurrency - bitcoin. The same is true of their dedicated donation collection site. And there is even a warning that they do not send any letters.

Apparently, fraudsters are trying to cunningly take advantage of the global crisis situation, possessing a good knowledge of modern technology. Or maybe the owners of WHO decided to use all available tools to raise funds. And experts are wondering, where is the hosting site for WHO?

Interestingly, so far, no funds have been received to the cryptocurrency wallet, which is indicated in the letter of the scammers. The wallet is constantly monitored by SICP platform experts, however, like other malicious purses known to them.

In Russia, announced an online service that analyzes the risks of using cryptocurrency and investigates crimes committed in this area. The development was carried out by the company "Internet-Rozysk".

The service, which was launched last year, was called the Security Intelligence Cryptocurrencies Platform. In January, an alpha version of the service appeared on the site www.ueba.su.

According to the project director Igor Bederov, the service was launched in December last year and as of January 2019, he found 46 thousand bitcoin wallets, which were given the status of "unreliable".

SICP analyzes blockchains, websites, chat rooms, and forums to identify those cyberwiches that are used in criminal schemes, such as fraud, blackmail, money laundering, and so on. Also, the development team of the platform builds interactions with market participants, public organizations and law enforcement agencies. One of the promising goals of the service creators see deanonymization of purses and assigning them the status of “trustworthy” - provided that they are not seen in the implementation of suspicious operations, and “unreliable” - if the operations that were carried out through the wallet raise doubts. At this stage, the strategic partners of the project are CipherTrace, Sentinel Protocol, Crystal, CryptoPolice, Wawes, SPb BlockChain, CryptoRussia.ru and ACISO.

The developers set themselves the task of giving users the ability to track all transactions from the moment they are sent until the moment they receive funds on the recipient’s wallet. The system should work by analogy with the methods that are now used by the financial supervision authorities. The service will identify wallets that are used for money laundering, terrorist financing and other illegal purposes. Also, the service will be able to monitor transactions on certain wallets for a long time, which will allow detecting fraudulent ICOs.

SICP is a breakthrough technology for Russian crypto-business. This prominent development will allow participants of the Russian cryptocurrency market to protect themselves from fraud, journalists said.

Note that on pre-sale, SICP tokens can be purchased at half price, and the alpha version of the service from January 9 can be connected to www.ueba.su.
