The fraud incident, which started after a mother received a WhatsApp message from her daughter, went to interesting places. The incident in Scotland is an example to everyone.
But the scammers hit hard rock this time. The scammers texted a mother as if it was from her daughter. Later in the message, money was demanded from the mother.
HE SAID HE’S BUYING IPHONE
The mother believed these messages from her daughter in the first place. However, afterward, she immediately called him and asked for information. Of course, the scammers did not agree to this. In the conversation, his daughter was saying that he was going to buy an iPhone and that he needed money. Surprised by this situation, the mother acted awake. Thus, a major fraudulent activity was prevented.
Many people became uneasy with this incident. As you can see, scammers can resort to mind-boggling methods. While such methods are sometimes tried over WhatsApp, sometimes they are done with Facebook. In short, scammers never rest. The new method of WhatsApp fraudsters made everyone say to give up.
