ThreatMetrix tracked this strain of attacks on sites like Facebook and Gmail, formulating a list of common scams consumers need to be aware of:
- “Transferring Facebook Credits to your bank account is now available!”
- “Earn up to 20 percent cash back purchasing Facebook Credits with your MasterCard or Visa debit card.”
- “Link your debit card right now with your Google Mail account to pay simply and securely at more than 3,000 stores online.”
