You thought Fortnite was all fun and games. Turns out it's also becoming a haven for money launderers.
Believe it or not, stolen credit card info is being used to purchase V-bucks. These V-bucks are then sold at a discounted rate to players. This is how the money launderers are 'cleaning' their money. Sales of these illegally-purchased V-bucks are taking place on both the dark web, as well as through more regular options like social media platforms.
Epic has not released a statement on this matter, but it's quite obvious this will be a major headache for the company. Hopefully they can take some steps to rectify the situation, but it's likely going to prove very tough to tackle.
