Windows 7: Anatomy of a free Starbucks gift card scam

Anatomy of a free Starbucks gift card scam

One trait that I developed since I started with Sophos is being calm under pressure. With virus and spam outbreaks, analysts needs to keep their nerves to analyze the situation and proceed to deal with the new threat. So, I wasn’t expected to be surprised by my friends’ actions on facebook this past weekend.

It started innocently enough, as a post about getting a Free $25 Starbucks gift card for joining a particular group. The first person to join the group from my friends list happens to work for a non-profit organization helping young people. So, I expected the young people on his “friends list” to join this group shortly.
