GameStop to customers: “Beware of scam SMS and emails”

All Game News

While many are asking about the PlayStation 5 D3, GameStop it also has to deal with an increasingly widespread phenomenon, that of scams against its customers.

The well-known retailer found himself last night in the unfortunate situation of having to warn his customers, who apparently have recently been the subject of pishing.

Phishing is one computer scam which consists in sending false SMS, emails and so on with the aim of obtaining the user’s sensitive data, from personal data to credit card numbers.

It therefore seems that in the last period the phenomenon has spread among GameStop customers, who, as mentioned, have been waiting for weeks for news regarding the restock of the new generation consoles, that is to say PS5 and Xbox Series X | S. Taking advantage of the ingenuity of some customers, who find themselves displaced by such requests, the perpetrators of the scams seriously risk reaching their shady ends.

Here is the note released by GameStop Italia on its social profiles. We invite you, as did GameStop, to pay close attention to the origin of the communications received, to avoid falling into dangerous traps.

We inform you that we have received reports relating to false communications apparently sent by GameStopZing Italia but which in reality represent a fake.

Phishing is one of the most widespread and increasingly elaborate techniques of computer fraud: emails, text messages or phone calls aimed at obtaining your data for illegal purposes.
