Epic’s game Fortnite is not only immensely popular among players, but also among scammers. Since Fortnite gained such a big following, the scams appear in masses and try to take advantage of Fortnite’s success.
Free V-Bucks Generators
Using this method the scammer will try to get at least one of the following points from you and at worst, all of them:
- He wants you to do a (fake) survey/ “human verification”, which is most often a hidden pay-subscription
- He wants you to share his scam website
- He wants you to give him your Fortnite username
- He wants you to download the generator
What could happen to you if you use a free V-Bucks generator:
- You lose some of your time
- You lose your Epic account
- You got malware /a virus on your device
- You now have an annoying paid-subscription
- Your friends laugh at you because you shared a scammers link
So whenever a website or YouTube video claims it has a “generator” – it is 100% a scam! Do not use these sites and do not download “generators”.
Free V-Buck Giveaways
If you are an active Fortnite player, who also spends some time on YouTube watching Fortnite videos you will probably have noticed them- free V-Buck giveaways.
YouTubers like engagement, like Likes, Subs and Comments. And giveaways are a proven method to increase this engagement. However, a lot of YouTubers are accused and some already proven to be scammers. They say that they give away V-Bucks and Skins, but never announce a winner.
If you want to participate in a free V-Buck giveaway, you should firsthand check if the YouTuber announces the winners.
- Free V-Bucks Generators are not working and want to scam you
- Never share your personal information online with unknown sources
- Never download “generators” or shady programs in general
- A lot of giveaways don’t work
