The Latest Phishing Scams Is Instagram’s "Ugly List"

Hah! This is the dumbest phishing scam I've ever heard of! Who would fall for something this stupid....wait, never mind, this is Instagram we are talking about. wink

But when some users clicked on the link, some got more than they bargained for. They got hacked. "This scam, like so many scams, has to do with an emotional hook," said Claire Rosenzweig, president of the Better Business Bureau. Rosenzweig says the "ugly list" is all just a ruse. "It takes them to a site that looks like the Instagram site, asks for their password," she said.
