Lady Gaga fans scammed by hackers on Twitter
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Hackers hijacked pop star Lady Gaga's Twitter account, scamming a number of her fans in the process.
The hacked messages appeared over a short period of time on Monday.
They offered a free computer or iPad to fans who clicked on a link in the post. The link took people to a website that asked for people's personal information.
The messages have been removed, and Lady Gaga tweeted that her Twitter account was back to normal.
