[ALERT] “Lowlife internet scum are trying to benefit from the Florida Parkland school shootings. They are now sending out phishing campaigns with topics and hashtags like Parkland, gun control now, Florida, gun control, 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. Don’t let them shock you into clicking on anything, or open possibly dangerous attachments you did not ask for! Other examples of possible phishing scams on social media are links on a photo of a “missing student” claiming the student is still missing and to send tips to the link or fake GoFundMe accounts. There is one official GoFundMe account backed by a legitimate non-profit called the Broward Education Foundation and all other campaigns relating to Parkland are vetted extensively by GoFundMe but not guaranteed to be legitimate.
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 legit 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.
In case you want to donate to charity, go to your usual charity by typing their name in the address bar of your browser and do not click on a link in any email. Remember, these precautions are just as important at the house as in the office, and tell your family.”
