Be careful! The Spanish National Police have reported a new type of scam related to WhatsApp. That’s right, another one! We’re beginning to lose count of how many times we’ve reported these types of stories.
It appears that cyber-criminals have invented a new version of the messaging app: WhatsApp Oro (WhatsApp Gold). As you can probably imagine, there is no ‘Gold’ version of WhatsApp, and it’s really just another fraud to subscribe you to Premium SMS services.
Seemingly, criminals have been advertising this service on Twitter and more than a few users have fallen for it.
As you know, the success of WhatsApp has made it a prime target for criminals, so take care and don’t fall into the trap!
