In this article “Pinterest, the pinboard-styled social photo sharing website that got so popular even Mark Zuckerberg opened a profile to see what all the fuss was about, has also caught the attention of online scammers and spammers.

If you are a user of the site, you couldn’t help noticing the Starbucks image being re-pinned constantly in the last couple of days, along with the offer of a free gift certificate to anybody who followed the link.

Another bogus offer popping up was that of luxury brand Coach Leatherware supposedly offering wallets and purses for free.”
