Families of missing persons should be aware of social media information security

There are still cases where relatives post photos of missing persons on social media and provide their personal information. In particular, information on the military units and ranks of the disappeared is made public.

The Office of the Commissioner for Missing Persons in Special Circumstances reminds us that posting information about your relatives on social media is handing over all the data to the enemy.

At the same time, this information is used by fraudsters. Law enforcement agencies have repeatedly documented cases of extortion for the transfer of bodies.

The state does not accept money from families for the return of bodies. If someone offers to return a person for a reward, contact the National Police immediately.
