Following reports of a new fraud, an urgent WhatsApp warning has been issued. What is it, and how do you report a scammer?
What is the 2022 app fraud, verified ticks explained - how to recognize fake Support accounts? Urgent WhatsApp warning.
Users of WhatsApp are being warned about a new scam involving scammers faking WhatsApp Support.
Scammers that want to steal your information or money commonly utilize messaging apps like WhatsApp, and we've lately noticed some claiming to be giving away free Easter chocolate baskets.
They may have the same username and profile image as the support account, but they lack the verified symbol that any official account will have.
Users should not be fooled by scammers who add the verified badge in their profile photo.
Scammers may pose as the official WhatsApp account and beg users for personal information.
They may request a verification code or even their credit card information as evidence of identity in order to gain access to their account information.
How to identify Fake Customer Service Accounts?
If a verified contact's badge is shown anywhere other than next to their name, such as on their profile photo, it signals that the contact may be attempting to deceive you.
WhatsApp will never ask for your credit card number, 6-digit code, or two-step verification PIN, nor will it ask for money or personal information.
It's most likely a bogus account attempting to deceive you if someone asks for this information.
