Pinterest Scams Found By McAfee

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - McAfee is telling Pinterest users to make sure they "pin" carefully.

They have found two scams that run on Pinterest.

To protect yourself, make sure never to pin something that you can't see the content of. Never share your password with anyone. Another most likely scam is a web page offering you a free gift card.

Also, don't pin something that says "shocking video" or "free giveaway".
