Yes, There Are Scams on Pinterest Now

Pinterest lovers beware! Scammers are hitting the increasingly popular site. While the scams are proving to just be a waste of time for now, one can only guess that the situation might get worse before it gets better. The current scam is focused on pictures of Starbucks and Coach and promises those who take a survey a free giveaway. There is no theft of personal information for now, but don’t take the chance. Since the site is so new, they aren’t as “educated” on member privacy and scammer infiltration like Facebook and Twitter. So, I guess the best advice I can give would be “pin with caution.”
