WhatsApp virus

Post by iainpeden »

I have just heard, from IT department, that a number of Whats App viruses about which will take over your phone and render it useless. Do not use the WhatsApp Gold update, use anything about Martinelli or the Dance with the Pope.

To be fair to @Ianpeden there are a lot of scam messages out there at the moment, probably best to always have a check of Snopes.com:

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/whatsapp-gold-scam/

Comes in handy dealing with some of the people who inhabit Facebook and cut and paste everything...........(you know what I mean) :biggrin:
