People whose livelihoods depend on trucks are desperately searching for this urea water these days. So, there are rumors that the price has jumped 10 times in some places, and even fraud crimes in which people take advantage of this situation to deceive themselves that there is an item and then go in hiding for money have also appeared.

Reporter Hwang Bo-ram of KNN covered the story.

Trucks are standing in long lines at the gas station inside the rest stop.

Waiting to put the number of elements.

In the midst of this situation, fraudulent activities taking advantage of the shortage of urea water are also on the rise.

A, who has been in the agricultural wholesale business for 16 years, visited a used trading site a few days ago to buy the number of elements needed for a truck.

What used to cost about 10,000 won for 10 liters has risen to over 100,000 won.

Fortunately, I contacted the seller when I saw an article that said they would sell it for around 30,000 won each.

I ordered 200 pieces and remitted 6 million won, fearing that I would not be able to work if I could not find the number of urea, but the seller disappeared after that.

It is estimated that dozens of people across the country have been scammed by the same seller, and the amount of damage alone is estimated to reach tens of millions of won.
