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, or being rewarded directly by Epic Games, the freebies don’t exist. It’s all a scam to get your Epic Games account login.

The first thing to do to protect yourself is don’t click on any of these links. Never, ever. But the other thing you can, and definitely should do, is to add two-factor authentication, a.k.a, 2FA. Also, if you have any payment information stored in your Epic account, maybe remove that, and just enter it every time. However much protection you apply, don’t leave these thieving scoundrels any breadcrumbs.

  1. Do it. My main account was hacked and sold on instagram. Luckily I got it back. I couldnt log into my epic account so I logged in on Xbox and saw my epic name was online. I sent an epic invite from my xbox account to my epic account I had linked to my ps4 and he joined. Luckily he was very understanding and just gave me the account back. He said he had no idea it was hacked. He bought it off on Instagram for $400. I’m so grateful he was a cool guy. Too bad whoever took it used my 3 item returns but other than that it was fine. I enables 2fa and havent had an issue since.
