Sounds confusing, right? Let’s make it more easy for you to understand. There’s been a dramatic rise in the number of fraudulent apps getting attention even top sales positions like the iPhone and iPad App Store.
The scam apps copies the original name and icon of popular games or apps in order to confuse consumers and gets them to buy a scam app instead of the real app or game. Buyer, so oblivious of these kind of fraudulent exercises, he goes ahead and end up spending on scam apps ultimately.
This costs the consumer money for the scam app and developers money for the lost sale. Others scam apps appear to be byte-for-byte copies, offered for along with the original. This still costs the developer money for the lost sale, and while consumers get a functioning app, it’s likely not one with any support going forward.
