I think the freeware aps have the scams. Seldom do I download "free apps". One exception is FastStone.

"Scams" are different than viruses or such. Scam just means you don't get what you expect or more than you expect. That's pretty much what all free stuff is going to be.

Jerry; and you believe this Washington Post story? Why? Do you own a Mac? Been scammed with an App Store Mac download? I’ve owned Macs since the beginning. Downloaded tons w/o being scammed from App Store!
