Any creator can create codes associated with the campaign and get money to continue your business. Unfortunately, some players are taking advantage of this mode by defrauding users. How? Promising, in exchange for money, to obtain special costumes you hate Free V-buck (the currency used in the video game to purchase items in the shop). Players who use these codes get nothing in return and, on the contrary, are literally scammed.
Fortnite, scams with the support a creator mode: what happens
The message published by Epic Games is quite clear about it. “We know that several creators have created content designed to defraud players and we are taking action to remove these creators from the ecosystem and to prevent similar scams in the future. Typically, these individuals create social media content in which they promise fake special benefits to players if they use a specific code Supports a creator. Another common scam is the islands in Creative mode that promise rewards for players, such as free V-buck cards. Players who use these codes never receive the special benefits that the creators have promised. “
The Support a creator mode was born with excellent intentions, but as often happens in these cases, there are always people who try to take advantage of it. Some players promise those who make a donation of the gift items, which is not included in the mode. It is therefore one professional scam.
