Twitter scams always prey on our fears and weaknesses, don’t they? And they often seem to arrive by way of direct message (DM).
We worry that something we may have said or done (and shouldn’t have) has gone viral, so those “what are you doing in this video” or “your [sic] famous now” DMs can send a chill, so you click them just in case. And bam! Account compromised.
Or we give in to the desire to see a public figure lose it and click a link promising to show Obama punching someone in the face. Compromised again.
This latest scam though is probably the most alluring: A “tip” to get in on the next big thing online before it hits mainstream. What could it be? They’re not telling, but you’ll get FILTHY RICH if you find out!
