HONOLULU (KHON2) — A recent scam is targeting a widely-used safety measure in technology, and using it against victims to get into their Google accounts.

“The moment I posted it maybe within 10-20 seconds later I got a response from somebody an interested party,” Young said.

He was then given a request: the potential buyer wanted to make sure that Young was real.
