What is a Self-XSS scam?

Updated July 7, 2020
A Self-XSS scam on OWNER GROUP tricks you into compromising your account by claiming to provide a way to log into someone else's OWNER GROUP account, or some other type of reward, in exchange for you to paste a link or special code in your web browser.

You may see this message on the Profile page of a contact once the swindler has compromised their account. Never click on a link in OWNER GROUP that leads you to a website that you do not know or trust.

Typically, this type of fraud spreads in your profile to spread itself to your contacts and may also include links to malicious software or suspicious websites.
