If you’re a fan of Temu, you’re familiar with the app’s referral code system. If you’re unfamiliar, Temu offers referral codes for users to share with friends and family. If enough people use someone’s referral code, both parties receive rewards, discounts, and free items from Temu.

However, Temu code referrers get the best rewards, so they’re encouraged to share their codes with as many people as possible. But there are only so many people one person can share codes with, so people are taking to social media to trick people into using their Temu codes.

Here’s how people are deceiving people with Temu codes on TikTok.

‘Leaked’ or nude photos of celebrities 

Some TikTok users will generate their referral code and tell others that if they type that code into Temu, they can view sensitive photos and videos of celebrities.

These scammers will say something like, “I thought [celebrity] was innocent”, or “[Celebrity name] just got leaked,” along with suggestive photos of the celebrity. According to BleepingComputer and the posts I’ve seen on TikTok, these celebrities range from singers and actors to popular influencers and content creators.
