“Think. Stop. Call” is the fundamental message behind WhatsApp’s (FB) new scam awareness campaign, which aims to help the swathes of people who receive scam texts each day.
A message from a “friend in need” asking for money or personal information could be the first sign of a scam, the campaign, which launches in partnership with National Trading Standards, warned.
Message-based scams could include text messages as well as those received on WhatsApp.
