Now free for all, there’s no excuse to fall for the latest WhatsApp hoax: WhatsApp Gold is a con. Here are some of the WhatsApp scams you should delete and forget.

WhatsApp Gold – WhatsApp Premium is a con

The latest WhatsApp hoax doing the rounds is an exclusive invitation to upgrade to a premium version of the app, called WhatsApp Gold. It’s complete and utter rubbish: there is no WhatsApp Gold.

“The invitation reads: “Hey Finally Secret WhatsApp golden version has been leaked, This version is used only by big celebrities. Now we can use it too.”

It claims to allow you to delete messages after you’ve sent them, and simultanously send 100 pictures, among other things. It sounds great, but it’s entirely made up. Click on the link in the invitation and you’re more likely to end up with a malware infection.

WhatsApp virus – how to avoid WhatsApp virus

The latest WhatsApp scam isn’t delivered by WhatsApp itself but through your email app on your Android phone or iPhone. It tells you that you have missed a WhatsApp call or have a WhatsApp voice message, which you should click on the link in the email to access. Rather than your message, you get a virus downloaded to your device.

Please don’t be fooled. WhatsApp will never contact you outside the WhatsApp app itself, so if you see this then do not click the link and delete the message.
