Beware, the gullible!
In anticipation of the imminent release of Apple’s iPhone 15, Kaspersky experts have uncovered a range of scams that exploit the excitement surrounding this tech innovation.
These scams encompass various fraudulent schemes, each carrying distinct risks for unsuspecting consumers, including potential data and financial losses.
In one prevalent deceptive maneuver, scammers entice users with the chance to purchase the iPhone 15 ahead of its official launch. This scheme capitalizes on users’ eagerness to be among the first to possess Apple’s latest device.
Here’s how this scam typically unfolds: Scammers claim they can provide pre-release iPhones and promise users the opportunity to acquire them, often at a premium price. To secure their “exclusive” purchase, victims are required to make an upfront payment or divulge their financial information.
Additionally, users are asked to provide personal identification details such as their name, address, and phone number. Following the submission of payment, the scammers vanish, leaving victims without the promised iPhone and deprived of their funds. Beyond the financial risks, this scam also raises significant privacy concerns, as the pilfered data may potentially be sold on the Dark Market.
