Fake Chrome browser in the Windows Phone Marketplace duping people out of $27
The app is called Chrome, sports the famous Google Chrome logo, and has a description that states, “Keep Chrome Browser handy on your device, especially for those unavoidable times you are on a slow crowded network, away from Wi-Fi. This app is same as a google chrome web browser. It has most stylish search button. Facebook, Google, Yahoo! -with Chrome Browser, all your favorite sites work great on your windows phone.”
Unfortunately the app is just an IE Shell; therefore, users will see no speed improvements over the built-in option. With a price tag of $1.99, this is surely a scam to be on the lookout for.
Luckily it has started to amass a collection of 1-star ratings, which should send up a red flag for an unsuspecting user. Hopefully, Microsoft will be more diligent in removing garbage like this from the Marketplace.
Look, but don't buy the Chrome app here [Windows Phone Marketplace Link]
