WhatsApp scam alert! Users getting fake verification texts

Whatsapp scam! Whatsapp scam! WhatsApp users currently receive spam messages that try to steal their identities and are warned of "false alerts" to keep their accounts secure.

Users verified that WhatsApp has sent messages requesting them, according to WABetaInfo, to send a particular authentication code. "Send the code you have just received from WhatsApp and you will be deleted tomorrow," says the post.

Whatsapp does not deliver your account renewal request. Block and report unofficial WhatsApp accounts demanding your six-digit code. Note: WhatsApp Support is not going to ask for a six-digit code!," said WABetaInfo in the tweet.

Please. Please. Please. Be careful of this WhatsApp scam and enable the Two-Step Verification in WhatsApp Settings >> Account!” read another tweet.

In addition, social media companies advise users not to click on spam links to pledge a discount or a donation to answer questions. The links then seek to access or steal personal information from the user's account, which may all prove lethal in the future.

It's not the first time WhatsApp has been confronted with this issue. The application has recently been shadowed by its Privacy Policy and we wonder if and when these problems will be resolved quickly.
