Your kids could be getting taken advantage of and it could cost you!


The gaming community is excited about the release of Fortnite's new season today and so are your kids. However, your kids should be wary of any deals that seem too good to be true.

As reported by Eyewitness News reporter, Stuart Hammer, scammers are now targeting kids as a way to gain access to sensitive financial information.

Fortnite has tons of items you can purchase in-game which leads to parents putting in their credit card information so they can buy these items. Most people leave their credit card info saved which makes it an easy target.

Scammers are reaching out to kids and saying that they'll get them the items they want as long as they can get access to the account. Once they gain access, they clean out the valuable information.

Be sure to let your kids know not to give out any personal information to anyone they talk to online.

If you suspect any of your accounts have been compromised this way, you can get help with the Better Business Bureau by visiting or calling 812-473-0202.
