Security software company McAfee has once again released its annual list of the world’s “most dangerous celebrities.” And while there aren’t any country singers on the list, one former country cutie is on the list … Taylor Swift.
The more popular a celebrity is, the more likely it is that scammers will find a way to use those celeb’s names to reel in some victims. The top celebrity on the list today is actress Anna Kendrick.
