Epic issues Fortnite scam warning as free V-Bucks videos flood YouTube
As Fortnite’s popularity has exploded, so has the rise of scammers who promise free V-Bucks.
V-Bucks are Fortnite’s premium currency. You buy them with real world money, then use the V-Bucks to buy aesthetic items, such as avatar outfits.
There are a huge number of videos on YouTube claiming to reveal the secret to nabbing free V-Bucks (a search for free V-Bucks returned 341,000 results). Some of these are pre-recorded videos set to repeat continuously – with thousands watching live. Most want you to visit a certain website or download a certain app. Some will manually show how easy it is to get free V-Bucks – pop your Fornite username into a website, decide how many V-Bucks you want and – magically! – they appear in-game, ready to spend.
