Warning: Twitter money scams in your DMs

-by Al Ferretti

Today I went to check my direct messages on Twitter and I discovered a whole bunch of DMs from different people that said..
“I made $426.23 online today with (link).” OR “I made money with google. this website showed me. (link)”

DO NOT CLICK THE LINK or links that appear like it.

After tweeting with a number of friends on Twitter, its apparent that this is another Twitter money scam and its moving throughout Twitter fast.

NOTE: The Direct messages were likely not sent from the users themselves but by account hijackers.

Here’s some tips to help you and how you can help others from being scammed:

1. Do not click the link

2. Change your password immediately

3. Do not give out your Twitter user name and Passcode

4. Report the account to @Spam
