Your WhatsApp account has expired? It is a scam

Some users of WhatsApp will receive a message informing them that their account is about to expire, and to continue using the app will have to pay 0.99 cents otherwise the service will be suspended. They also lose all their chat, photos and videos shared to date. Inside the message it is also a link from which it would be possible to make a payment. In fact, as reported by the police to their Facebook account, it is a scam.

WhatsApp started as a free service, but in 2013 imposed an annual fee of 0.89 cents for all new users of the app. The initiative has been suspended after a short time and the app currently does not require the payment of any sum so you can chat with your contacts. This is therefore yet another scam conveyed through the popular messaging service, which recently received a fine by the Competition Authority for data sharing with Facebook. Clicking on the link in the message it is likely that hackers can get the numbers of the user’s credit card to milk and thus also in higher numbers. In these days it has spread the news that it was possible to change the color of the graphic WhatsApp. Again it was a fraudulent attempt to entice users to download an adware on your PC.
