Scammer from Udmurtia conned philanthropists and bought SUV

Natalia Dineeva was collecting money for the treatment of her 4-year-old son, who reportedly had liver cancer. Trusting volunteers and caring people believed in fabled history and helped her in every possible way to raise funds.

Volunteers created a social networking group to collect the necessary funds. Non-indifferent people transferred money to the bank account number posted on the group page. As a result, more than a million rubles has been collected.

Natalia Dineeva was also transferred part of the funds previously collected for another child who unfortunately died, so the money has not been spent.

However, the scammer was exposed: it turned out that her son is a healthy baby, and she used this money (more than a million rubles), collected by trusting people, to buy an offroader.

- But this money could be spent to treat children who really need this help, the volunteers say lamenting.

The activists appealed to the Prosecutor's Office to punish the scammer. According to lawyers, Dineeva can be held liable under the Criminal Code for fraud.
