Swedish Ambassador to Macedonia Mats Staffansson was the first to take the bait set by a fake Twitter account of Macedonia’s President Gjorge Ivanov.

The profile presented as belonging to the president of the state informed that he had a telephone conversation with his Greek counterpart Pavlopoulos and that he invited him to visit Greece on 7 March.

Staffansson initially wrote that it was a remarkably positive signal but later realized that it was a fraud and removed several tweets on the subject.
