    As Fortnite's popularity booms, Epic Games accounts are being compromised. Here's how to protect yourself.
    Usually, if something looks too good to be true, it is. And this is exactly what's happening right now with Fortnite, Epic Games' smash-hit with its free-to-play Battle Royale mode. The Fortnite in-game currency, Vbucks, is the only way to buy the cosmetic items, such as outfits, gliders, pickaxes and emotes. But Vbucks cost real money for the most part. What you earn in the game doesn't go that far.
    Enter the unscrupulous people of the internet and multiple "free-Vbucks, click-here" scams.
    Here's the thing: There are no free Vbucks. Epic Games has confirmed this. Unless you're winning some in a competition from, say, a well-known streamer, the freebies don't exist. It's all a scam to get your Epic Games account login.
