Rockford, IL – Jan 25, 2022 – APP scams are becoming more common as reports come into the BBB Scamtracker. From passwords to banking details, you store important personal information on your mobile devices. Unfortunately, scammers are lurking on the app stores of Apple and Google and using various techniques like pop-up ads and emails on the hunt for victims.
Dennis Horton, director of the Rockford Regional Office of the Better Business Bureau, says, “Trusted app stores don’t eliminate the threat of app scams, but they do offer a higher level of protection. You are much more likely to download an app that will send spam messages or expose your phone number if you download it from an unofficial or little-known app store.”
