Fortnite, one of the most popular free-to-play games in the world, has attracted the attention of criminals.
According to a recent report, credit card thieves have started using Fortnite as a way to launder money. The thieves use stolen credit cards to purchase large amounts of V-Bucks, the game’s in-game currency, and later re-sell V-Bucks at a lower price on the Deep Web or social media networks.
As the thieves are selling V-Bucks for a very low price, there are many willing buyers out there. Hopefully Epic Games will figure out a way to stop this, like advising players to purchase V-Bucks only through official means and banning users who purchase V-Bucks via illegal means.
