Tinder scammers pose as flight attendants to trick victims into sending cash

Tinder is a pretty good way to find new people to meet, and eventually find a new partner to be with in life (if these things actually happen to work for you). It’s a different story, however, if you come to Tinder hoping for romance, but end up being catfished for money along the way. This has been the fate of a number of Tinder hopefuls in Thailand, with scammers posing as pretty women and draining them of “millions of baht,” in a rather sneaky deceit. Read More….

Cuomo to college students: Fake IDs pose identity theft risk

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is warning college students about the risks of buying fake IDs online. Cuomo says state investigators have discovered “dozens” of cases of identity theft that occurred after the victim tried to purchase fake IDs online. Officials say the victims went online to buy fake driver’s licenses and handed over their name, address, date of birth and other personal details to scam artists who used the information to commit identity theft. Cuomo notes that the effects of identity theft can linger for years and says getting a fake ID isn’t worth the risk of getting caught or of being victimized by identity thieves. The warning from the Democratic governor comes as thousands of students return to college for the start of fall classes.

The millions of people using dating apps on company smartphones could be exposing themselves and their employers to hacking, spying and theft, according to a study by International Business Machines. IBM security researchers said 26 of 41 dating apps they analyzed on Google’s Android mobile platform had medium or high severity vulnerabilities, in a report published on Wednesday.IBM did not name the vulnerable apps but said it had alerted the app publishers to problems. Apps such as Tinder, OkCupid and Match have become hugely popular in the past few years due to their instant messaging, photo and geolocation services. About 31 million Americans have used a dating site or app, according to a 2013 Pew Research Center study. IBM found employees used vulnerable dating apps in nearly 50 percent of the companies sampled for its research. Using the same phone for work and play, a phenomenon known as “bring your own device,” or BYOD, means users and their employers are both open to potential cyberattacks. “The trouble with BYOD is that, if not managed properly, the organizations might be leaking sensitive corporate data via employee-owned devices,” said the IBM report. IBM said the problem is that people on dating apps […]
