A software app that was supposed to keep your iPhone secure from hackers has allegedly become a popular tool for scammers and malware writers.
A new scam has been created by scammers in order to make money, according to The Verge.
The scammer, whose name is not revealed in the article, has been posting ads for the malware on social media platforms and claiming that it is a legitimate tool for keeping your iPhone safe.
Users are tricked into paying up to $1,500 to receive the scammer’s free copy of the free app.
The app has been installed on more than a dozen iPhone devices in the United States and Canada, according a review of the app by The Verge published on Wednesday.
It has not been available in other countries.
The scammer claims that he has been collecting money from people by asking them to donate to charity, according the review.
In a statement, the company said that it has no control over the software, and that it cannot verify the authenticity of the ads.
“The app is not malicious and has no malicious purpose.
It is a tool to help keep your phone safe,” the company wrote.
“We encourage anyone who is affected by this scam to contact us.”
