The latest spam trend was observed over the last month, and in a recent blog post the security team laid out exactly how the scam works.
First, the spam bots initiate conversation with Tinder users with a “flirty or playful” message, such as: “Wanna eat cookie dough together some time? The spam bot then says it is a new free service from Tinder designed to ensure that “the person you wanna meet isn’t a serial killer lol.” As Symantec’s Satnam Narang says, the scammers are cleverly using any mistrust singles might have towards online dating services to help with their scams, saying: “The spammers use this legitimate concern to convince users to verify themselves and trick them into thinking verification will lead to a date.” The fraudsters might also be playing off the fact that Tinder launched “verified” profiles last year for “notable figures” like celebrities and athletes, because although the type of fake verification they are peddling is completely different, users may have heard about “verified” Tinder profiles, therefore making the scam more believable.
