We’ve already seen iTunes gift card scams spread via Facebook, but today the thing to look out for is iTunes Gift Card spam on Twitter.
some typical messages:
All of now the Twitter accounts ending out these messages having a profile of a beautiful woman.
It seems that these Twitter users have been created purely for the purposes of spamming out these tweets.
If anyone click on the link, you redirected to a website which firstly attempts to work out where in the world you are. I’m writing this from the UK, and it decided to relay my web browser to a dating website for men who want to meet young Russian women.
No sign of any free iTunes gift cards. Spammers are just using the lure of a free iTunes gift card to entice unsuspecting Twitter users into visiting their sites.
In this way the Spammers could easily take you to a webpage containing malware, or a site which attempts to phish your passwords.
So, avoid getting trapped into such spams on Social Networking Sites.
