Unfold Close  LINE SCAM

Has your LINE account been hacked? In this LINE scam, hackers take your identity and use it to ask your contacts to buy iTunes or other gift cards for them. Likewise, you might have been asked by a friend to buy the cards urgently.

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR

  • Check that you are able to log into your account; if you have trouble logging in, your account might have been compromised
  • Your phone data bill is larger than usual

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

  • Never agree to an unexpected request from a friend without first verifying with them over the phone that they indeed want you to buy them the gift
  • Be extra careful with dealings over mobile messaging platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp, Skype or LINE
  • If your own account has been compromised, immediately report this to the operator of the messaging app, and deactivate your account – simply uninstalling the app is insufficient
