It’s been a while and some minutes, I’m back now. So straight to business. Today we won’t be discussing gadgets or physical equipment. Today we’ll be talking hackers and how they steal from unsuspecting victims.
I know the post title has you wondering if I meant…
So we are having this beautiful conversation on a WhatsApp group today, and someone drops a bombshell
Amazingly, this same hacker attacked about 3 members of the group in the last two weeks.
How do these hacks work?
- The hacker contacts you on WhatsApp (most likely with a contact on your list that he’s already hacked)
- They offer you ridiculously cheap data
- Once you decide to trade with them, they start the process
Here I’ll take a huge leap and say they create an account with your number, and when it’s time to confirm, WhatsApp sends you the VERIFICATION CODE
The minute you send that code…
- You are approached with an “EMPOWERMENT” offer, they promise to double your money in 45 minutes
- If you agree, they call you and ask for details of your bank in lieu of registering you for the scheme
- You disclose your bank details
And once again, I’ll just be speculating here, they download the mobile app for your bank, enter your details and use the forgot password option. Your bank sends you a code, they ask for it, the moment you send it to them, you’ll begin receiving alerts – in the negative
In order to make sure no one uses your WhatsApp account you can deactivate your account by sending an email to WhatsApp support at email@example.com with the phrase “Lost/Stolen: Please deactivate my account” in the body.
Upon successful deactivation you have 30 days to reactivate your account before it gets deleted completely.
