Whatsapp Scams

The popularity of Whatsapp has been on the rise since especially after it was acquired by Meta. With its fame, it has also become a target for scammers and they are hurting innocent people by using different methods to steal their money. Although Whatsapp chats are end-to-end encrypted but scammers still succeed in their unethical aim because they don’t require hacking into anything. All they do is find some elderly target and send messages by posing as a family member or a close friend.

Money-Back wants you to know how these scammers start a conversation so that you can easily identify a scammer and don’t get trapped. They send a message from an unknown number that I have lost my mobile so I don’t have access to my account. They ask for money to pay some school fees, plane tickets, or house rent. They send this message to those who already make such types of transactions to their children or sibling that is why they don’t get any hint of a scam as they are habitual.

The other thing is that they don’t stop with this and ask for a second transaction as well for a different reason. The second time people get some suspicion as call the number to confirm their voice but all they hear is noise and later they receive a message that ‘sorry, the mic is not working’.

To sum up, scammers can target anyone at any time and you should be cautious all the time. If someone contacts you from a number he has never used before, it is necessary for you to contact his previous number and confirm it is him.
