Just in time for holiday shopping scammers have made their way into the app store posing as legitimate retailers,
luring unsuspecting victims, into giving up their credit card and personal information.

It may appear to be a real app from Dillards, Puma, Payless or Pandora, but those are just a few of the retailers that have already been targeted.

If customers aren’t reviewing the app, or the reviews are all bad, stay away. More red flags include bad English or links to other apps from competing retailers.

Most of the fake apps are thought to come from scammers in China.

Both Google and Apple say they are constantly flagging and removing suspicious apps.
