Snapchat scam scares users by threatening to expose their nude pictures
Vanessa Hudgens: “Are you serious?”
Snapchat is warning users about a multitude of fake messages that are currently doing the rounds online.
One claims that users will lose their Snapchat Memories unless they forward the message to all of their friends. Another, more sinister, fake message claims that users’ nudes will be posted online by Snapchat’s Twitter account… unless they forward the message to all of their friends.
An example follows below − note the dodgy grammar:

They’re all designed to make it look like the fake messages came directly from Snapchat, when in reality they’re simply doctored screenshots.
The campaign is causing panic amongst Snapchat’s users, many of whom have reported the messages to the company’s Support account, asking if there’s any truth in them.
Vanessa Hudgens is not amused.
