Screenshot 11 Warning: Beware of Fake Invitations to Google+

Spammers are now sending out fake invitations to the newly launched Facebook competitor, Google+. The messages looks quite similar to emails that users would expect to receive from friends who are already members of the service.

It is the IT security blog Naked Security who reports that scammers have begun sending out fake emails, which contains links which apparently takes you to the new online service.

However, if you click on the links, you are not led to the Google+ website, but instead you are directed to a pharmacy website trying to sell you Viagra, Cialis and Levitra and other classic spam products.

It can not be excluded that some of these sites can contain files that may involve a security risk for your computer. So if you get an invitation to Google+ from a sender you do not know, your best bet is to delete it immediately.
