Cyber criminals are trying to benefit from the Florida Parkland school shootings. They are sending out phishing campaigns with topics and hashtags like Parkland, guncontrolnow, Florida, guncontrol, and Nikolas Cruz that try to trick you into clicking on a variety of links about blood drives, charitable donations, “inside” information or “exclusive” videos.
Anything you receive about the Parkland shooting, be very suspicious. With this topic, think three times before you click or tap your phone. It is very possible that it is a scam, even though it might look legitimate or was forwarded to you by a friend — be especially careful when it seems to come from someone you know through email, a text or social media postings because their account may be hacked.
