Los Angeles, CA (KMOV.com)---It's a list you do not want to be on and to make matters worse, experts say it is all a scam to get your personal information.

The Better Business Bureau is warning Instagram users of a scam making the rounds. They say it works by users getting a link that they made a list of ugly people on Instagram.

When the user clicks the link, that is when the scammers have you. Officials say it then takes the user to a site that looks like the Instagram site and asks for their password. It is a classic phishing scam.

Cyber threat experts say millennials are becoming the perfect targets for scams like this one.
