Fortnite is one of the most popular games ever seen, so it’s no surprise to see scams in big numbers. Between September and October this year, there were over 53,000 reported scams! Most of these scams are preying on the vulnerability of children when they’re searching for V-Bucks (in-game currency) so it’s worth having a chat with children about how they access Fortnite and what they are doing whilst playing the game. Please read the article written by the independent for further information on these scams; some of which include a fake store where CHILDREN have been putting in credit card details!
