General News  Beware Of Fake Google+ Invites
Advertisement
#1
Thumbs Down 

Google+ is red hot right now, but the problem is that you can join it by invitation only. Needless to say, scammers don't want to waste this opportunity to 'make hay while the sun shines'. Don't be surprised if you receive a Google+ invite, even when you haven't really applied for one - it may be from one such scammer, according to a report by Sophos, the security agency.



The invites appear very authentic, but the sender is not really a Google+ member, rather some scammer associated with one of the many online pharmacy websites. Clicking on the Learn more about Google+ link will not take you to the Google+ signup page, but will land you at one of the shady online pharmacy websites set up to sell Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra. With Google+ trending heavily worldwide, and some even selling invites for the same on e-bay at US$ 75, it is hard for anyone to not fall prey to such scams.


The next time you receive a Google+ invite, make sure you check what URL the link in the mail actually points to.
