The hoaxes continue to emerge and now a new scam appears on WhatsApp that impersonates the identity of the service posing as a supposed technical service and alluding to a serious problem that could be occurring to the user who receives said message.
You have to be very careful with this type of chains, so you never have to share them, much less perform the steps indicated in them. This was not going to be less, despite the fact that what is mentioned in said message supposes a serious problem for the user
The scam, disclosed by Twitter user Dario Navarro, introduces himself by saying the following: "Hello, cordial greetings from WhatsApp technical support. Dear user, we inform you that someone has recently registered with your number and we can't determine if the login is legitimate."
Also, it alludes to the fact that an supposed SMS has been sent to verify identity, a message that does not really exist and that it would not reach you, which would make the user think that what the scam that has arrived really says would be totally real.
However, in case you get a message with the code to verify identity, you should also ignore it because the target What exists behind this message is that the cybercriminals behind it are stealing your WhatsApp account.
In addition, you should know several important details, the company would never ask you to revealverification codes or other data, but In case I could inform you of something, something very rare, I would do it with a verified WhatsApp Business account.
That would attest that it really is WhatsApp and not an impersonating profile, which is what happens in this specific case, so if you receive a message that claims to be technical service, what you have to do is delete it and not share it with anyone, in addition to notifying your relatives that it is a scam in case they could receive it.
