27. Digital Kidnapping

Yes, this sounds bad, but out of all the scams listed, this will do the least amount of damage. Digital kidnapping is when hackers will take control of your social media profiles.

On rare occasions, these scammers will require you to pay a large amount of money to get your accounts back, and if they don’t receive the money, they might post detrimental information for all to see.

If this happens to you, the best thing you can do is to simply contact the social media platform and say you are experiencing unwanted fraud.
