He also defrauded citizens in this way, starting in February 2016.

The suspect used several "fake Facebook profiles" to mislead citizens into thinking they were donating money to Trifunovic's humanitarian organization, the Interior Ministry (MUP) said on Wednesday.

But the money was instead deposited to the suspect's bank accounts.

The MUP said that one victim of this scheme has been identified so far and that they donated a total of RSD 345,000, while checks are currently being carried out to find out if there were others.

The suspect will be charged with fraud and taken before the Special Prosecution for High Tech Crime.
