MUMBAI: According to Bitdefender, a security vendor, social network scams targeting users of sites like Facebook have nearly doubled in 2013 as compared to 2012.

The company also revealed that it was expected as social media scammers are likely to fool people and double their profits during the holidays.

“There are two simple steps that will ruin your Christmas: click on a free voucher scam, and complete the `intelligence’ surveys that ask for your credentials and your mom’s maiden name. Not even Santa Claus will help you recover the money and personal details you lose,” Bitdefender chief security strategist Catalin Cosoi told the media.

Bitdefender advised social media users to think twice before clicking on dubious Christmas messages that ask them to complete endless surveys.
