Snapchat App Scams

How the scam works:

(with videos below) Snapchat is the newest sensation in the world of social media. The popular app allows its users to take photos, record videos, add text and drawings, and send them to a controlled list of recipients. These sent photographs and videos are known as "snaps". Users set a time limit for how long recipients can view their snaps, after which they will be hidden from the recipient's device and deleted from Snapchat's servers.

However, with the popularity of the app along came the scammers, who found ways of vicitmizing the users. Let's take a look at two fraudulent activities that still happen in the Snapchat world:

How to avoid:

To start with, make sure that you download Snapchat only from the official app stores. On the other hand, never respond to unsolicited and unknown texts and messages. You should know by now that you can't win a contest if you don't enter it. Change your settings so that you can receive snaps only from people that you know.
