Steer Clear of Bin Laden Scams

The recent death of Osama bin Laden has brought spammers out of hiding and has them targeting consumers with spam emails, websites and social networking posts containing malware.

How to protect yourself:

  • DO NOT click on Facebook or Twitter links that promise photos/videos of Bin Laden that are from unknown or suspicious domains.
  • DO NOT click on links in search results unless the website is a trusted source.
  • Don’t fill out surveys looking for personal info that promise something free celebrating Osama bin Laden’s death.
