Game over! The bad guys are now targeting Fortnite and League Of Legends players. They are offering “free” v-bucks, a digital currency purchased with real money to buy virtual goods in Fortnite, to phish users and learn their credentials. Instead of getting an exciting new skin for their favorite Fortnite character, they could be giving away their identity to the bad guys. As for League of Legends, the bad guys are using fake landing sites to steal passwords which are often reused. They can then use this information to gain access to other accounts the user may have, including Fortnite.
Please make sure your kids and gamer friends alike are aware that there are thousands of scam sites trying to rope them in with social engineering tactics. The best way to avoid scams is to only purchase v-bucks directly from the “Fortnite” store, remember not use the same password for multiple accounts, and never share your account information online.

Stop, Look, and Think. Don’t be fooled.
