Apps for Sale

How the scam works:

If you are a big fan of smart phone apps, remember that the official distributors are iTunes and Google Play.

It has been reported that scammers create websites that offer the Top 10 or Top 25 best paid apps in fake bundles (“Top 10 best apps for $25”). They then go on websites like Twitter, Facebook or Digg and spam everybody who agrees to be their follower or friend.

Feel free to report fake apps in the comments section below.

How to avoid:

Never buy apps from sellers that don’t direct you to iTunes or Google Play.

Make your friends and family aware of this scam by sharing it, using the buttons above.
