A new phishing scam is targeting users of the popular social media site Pinterest.  The Superior Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies are warning residents to beware of the scam and its dangers.

The scam works like this:  You’ll receive an email notifying you of a successful password reset.  Consumers who click  the link report being taken through a series of redirections before eventually landing on a compromised website.

What can you do?

  • Don’t open any email that suggests that your Pinterest password has been reset.
  • Update your anti-malware, spyware, and virus protection software.

Like any scam, common sense can often curtail the malicious activity.
