Artist Maxim Galkin emigrated abroad.
The 46-year-old humorist fell victim to Internet scammers. On behalf of Maxim Galkin, they are raffling off his property left in Russia.
The former Tonight host moved abroad with his family at the end of February, first to Israel and then to Latvia. The artist is actively touring abroad, while Alla Pugacheva and 8-year-old Lisa and Harry are in Jurmala. Maxim will not be able to come to Russia anytime soon. He faces criminal punishment in the case of spreading fakes about the Russian army.
The attackers took advantage of the situation. The scammers posted on their page on social networks a video with Alla Pugacheva’s husband. Maxim Galkin in a white T-shirt was walking in the park of Jurmala. The video was accompanied by music from the singer’s hit “Starry Summer”. The authors of the video also overlay the translation of the text. “I don’t plan to return to Russia and then go to jail. Therefore, everything that I have from the money left there, I will give you”, — stated in the message on behalf of Galkin.
Users were invited to take part in a cash draw. To do this, you need to go to the site and select one of the three images. One of them supposedly contains a prize. The organizers give the participants three attempts. The scammers claim that some users have already received rewards ranging from $50 to $150, Prozvezd reports.
Galkin has an impressive fortune. He is considered one of the most successful emigrants. The artist held a tour in Israel and performed in Turkey. It is known that the star father receives up to 6 million rubles for his concert.
