Fortnite, one of the most popular free-to-play games in the world, has attracted the attention of swindlers.

Swindlers now uses Fortnite V-bucks to launder money

According to a recent report, credit card thieves have started using Fortnite Battle Royale as a way to launder money. The thieves use stolen credit cards to purchase large amounts of V-Bucks, the game’s in-game currency, and later re-sell V-Bucks at a lower price on the Deep Web or social media networks.

According to Benjamin Preminger a senior intelligence analyst at Sixgill to the Independent. Lawbreakers are executing carding fraud and getting money in and out of the Fortnite system with relative impunity.

He goes further saying, that the company doesn’t seem to care about players defrauding the system and purchasing discounted V-Bucks…This directly touches on the ability of threat actors to launder money through the game.

As the thievies are selling V-Bucks for a very low price, there are many willing buyers out there. Hopefully Epic Games will figure out a way to stop this, like advising players to purchase V-Bucks only through official means and restricting users who purchase V-Bucks through illegal means.

What do you think? Do you think that Epic Games should be able to control these situations?
