WhatsApp scam: WhatsApp users beware, there is a conspiracy to steal accounts

Another new scam has been published on WhatsApp, where an account pretending to be the official communication source of the WhatsApp technology team is asking users to share their verification code. It uses the WhatsApp logo as a profile picture to show the authenticity of the account of fake account users. Although we tell you that WhatsApp teams do not use the messaging app to communicate with users. Instead, the group uses social media channels, including Twitter or the company’s official blog, to post public announcements.

WIANFO, a blog that tracks WhatsApp features, posted a tweet highlighting the latest scandal, after Dario Navarro, a Twitter user, inquired about the message of the scandal. According to the Navarro shared screenshot, the scammer sends a message in Spanish and asks users to use the six-digit verification code to verify the account on their phone, which users receive via SMS.

Explain that the verification code is used to activate the WhatsApp account on the new device, which users receive via SMS on their phone. The purpose of this security code is to protect the accounts of the users in the messaging app from bad causes.

As we told you, these scammers put the WhatsApp logo on their account as a profile picture, so that other users get this account like an official account and they fall into the scammer’s scam. However, according to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp does not communicate with its users through the app and if in any case the company communicates with the user, the name of the official account will also have a green verified sign, indicating his official account. It is also important to note that Facebook-owned companies will not ask users for any data related to their data, including verification codes.

So it is clear that the account and the message seen in the screenshot is nothing but a scam. You should not pay attention to any such message.
