As Google+ is gaining heat, its  invitation system has provided scammers a golden oppurtunity to gain profit by fooling people.

Don ‘t be surprised if you
receive a Google + invite, even when you haven’t really applied for one – it may be from one such scammer.
A security company sophos reported that The invites appear very authentic, but
the sender is not really a Google +
member, rather some scammer
associated with one of the many
online pharmacy websites .

Clicking on
the Learn more about Google + link
will not take you to the Google +
signup page, but will land you at one
of the shady online pharmacy
websites set up to sell Viagra, Cialis,
and Levitra. With Google + trending
heavily worldwide, and some even
selling invites for the same on e -bay at
US$ 75, it is hard for anyone to not
fall prey to such scams.
