Stealing, hijacking, and counterfeiting aren’t social. Stop social networking scams while protecting legitimate members and protecting the integrity of your brand.

Fraudsters and scammers target online dating, gaming, social networking and virtual goods sites with stolen credit cards and hijacked credentials. Social websites have to defend users from fraudsters and stolen credentials, as well as criminals testing stolen credit cards.
