ICTA warns of whatsapp scam

A fake download notice is making the rounds on the popular messaging app, Whatsapp, and the Information and Telecommunications Authority (ICTA) says it’s a scam.

ICTA said the notice comes with a link, telling users they can click to use Whatsapp without having to connect to wifi. The scammers promise free 3G internet anywhere you go for use with Whatsapp.

Sounds good, right? But as tempting as that sounds, it’s a bogus claim.

ICTA advises the public not to click on the link.
