In a series of tweets, grime artist JME chronicles how he almost fell victim to phishing scammers under the guise of the App Store. 


According to The Guardian, the UK lost an estimated £27 billion in 2012 through cybercrime. More than £600m of this was through phishing attacks. Phishers operate by pretending to be an official organisation, to trick victims into giving their login details. JME was redirected to a page that accurately resembles the App Store login page. Showing how much more sophisticated cyber attackers are getting. Always check the URL and if you’re on a desktop PC, check for the green padlock.

A fair warning, don’t feed the cretinous pervert guys.

We have a fan here that isn’t that sharp. Definitely not as sharp as 3D Digital Design graduate JME, who graduated from the University of Greenwich with First Class Honours. He made that fact very clear to someone who had a problem with his vocabulary.
