When surfing the net, there are some aspects that are worth taking into account. We are talking in particular about scams, which have represented one of the greatest dangers since the beginning and which can also concern us “ordinary” users. Hackers and cybercriminals are in fact adopting increasingly cutting-edge systems to obtain sensitive data and information.

Be careful of these scams, everyone is falling for it

But there are some particular scam methods that still remain the most well-known and popular today. You must be very careful and inform yourself immediately, so as to avoid problems and know how to act with prevention. Here is a list of the worst, there are a few that should catch your interest. Whether you are using a smartphone, a PC or a tablet, dangers are always around the corner.

The most dangerous scams: here’s how to recognize them immediately

These that we will tell you about are by far the most dangerous scams that can be encountered online today. Matteo Viviani from Le Iene brought the problem to light, with a service that wanted to inform citizens about the possible dangers if they don’t act correctly online.

Smartphone scams, how to defend yourself and not lose money

The first dangerous trick of cybercriminals is the so-called quishing, i.e. a QR code connecting to the Wi-Fi which actually causes malicious software to be downloaded onto the smartphone. Which among other things, can also make bank transfers, block your phone and steal your identity. But there are also other risks, such as requests to change passwords, fake account freezes or even messages on WhatsApp.

In particular, this last case deserves your attention, because the complaints and risks in this regard are increasing. We are specifically talking about messages that are sent by contacts registered in your address book, therefore perfectly disguised. And usually the victim, usually elderly, is asked for money. With the sums that in reality do not end up in the hands of the person saved, but of a hacker who was able to infect multiple smartphones and gain access. A witness even told Le Iene that he found 11 bank accounts opened in his name, with sums equal to 40/50 thousand euros paid into each of them.
