Beware Thrones phishing scams

Beware Thrones phishing scams (Identity Theft, Fraud, Scams)

Among the phishing sites based on Game of Thrones is one masquerading as an official online store. The final season of Game of Thrones is captivating TV viewers worldwide, but it has also given rise to phishing scams and other online misbehaviour through unlicensed, malicious or fraudulent sites. Another site aims to dishonestly collect credit card details of users by posing as an official Game of Thrones merchandise store. While many people may claim to be able to tell the difference between a real site and a fake site, the use of well recognised and trusted brands, like Game of Thrones, is the preferred method for suggesting to the user that the impersonated email or website is trustworthy. These fraudulent websites mostly include sites requesting personal information for marketing opportunities, and fake streaming sites, requesting the user to download a browser add-on and provide personal information, while no streaming content is displayed at the end of the process. Check the site's domain name is the site you are expecting to visit and trust.
