Back in late May, Satnam Narang, a single, 31-year-old security response manager at Symantec (a cybersecurity firm that owns Norton anti-virus) was flipping through Tinder in his Santa Monica apartment.
After months of no success, suddenly, he had a stream of matches.
Tinder, the addictive online matchmaking tool, is plagued by fake accounts luring unsuspecting users into pricey phishing schemes.
But they all had sketchy bios and no shared interests. "I sent them messages and out of the three accounts I encountered in that string of that session, I got a reply from two of them.And they were both the exact same reply." Narang figured it was a hoax.
