Fortnite’s players should be more cautious

Fortnite is one of the most popular multiplayer free-to-play games this year with an audience of more than 43 million players. Criminals have now found a way to scam in-game purchases.

Between early September and early October of this year, Zerofox discovered over 53,000 alerts related to Fortnite scams, the majority of which stem from social media. To promote and spread these scams, criminals often use YouTube videos or social media campaigns that use phrases like "make quick money," or "earn easy cash."
