Among Us World’s most downloaded game in October but beware of the fake versions
With success comes some bit of controversy and that is true for Among Us as well. The fake versions of the world’s most downloaded game in October has started doing the rounds.
If you’ve been playing Among Us for a while, then you should be familiar with the heaps of hats, costumes, or pets that are available in the game for free, or for a small price. While all of the in-game cosmetics add a nice touch to your character, it appears like some websites are abusing the players’ demands for Among Us skins to scam them.
Some fake Among Us giveaway websites claims to provide players with custom skins for the murder mystery and that too, free of charge. It’s easy to see how newer players could find themselves falling for such websites and get their time and money ripped off from them.
One example of a website like this is amongus.dev. The website advertises custom player skins like ‘God’, ‘Dinosaur, ‘Spiderman’, or ‘Rainbow’, none of that exist in the actual game.
