WhatsApp is the world’s most popular messaging app.
And as of January this year, boasts a whopping two billion-strong user base sending over 100 billion messages every day.
The idea that simply sending the wrong kind of message could result in fines or legal damages comes as a huge shock for users who use the platform to send memes and videos on a daily basis.
The news comes as police issue a formal statement warning users of a scam that could cost them millions.
と呼ばれる “困っている友達”, the scam often starts with “Hi mum/dad it’s me” and involves tricking parents into thinking they’re speaking to their children.
Often it will be using an excuse like they’re texting on a friend’s phone or from a new number.
But the scammer behind the con will then request a large sum of money to pay some kind of urgent bill.
Action Fraud says that the scam was reported 1,235 times between February 3 と6月 21 今年, with a total cost to victims standing at an astonishing £1.5million so far.
If you receive any of these types of messages, WhatsApp recommends reporting them as spam messages, which can be done within the app.
