    **Warning** NEW WhatsApp Scam

    Editor
    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

    A message is doing the rounds on WhatsApp offering people hundred pounds worth of Sainsbury’s vouchers and £250 of Marks and Spencer vouchers.

    This message will come from one of your contacts, but it is a FAKE scam message. It’s likely anyone who has sent the message has already had their account hacked.

    The Marks and Spencer scam works in the same way.

    Also, there's another Amazon scam doing the rounds too!

    When you click more information amazon is actually [email protected]docs.com. Remember, if you receive an email with a link asking you to log in to your account, don't click the link, or enter your details

    my missus got one yesterday on WhatsApp told her straight away it was a scam

    Thanks for sharing, hadnt heard of this before.

    General rule of thumb. If it has superfluous Emoticons or doesn't say Dear it is a generic phish.
    Obviously it means you may delete messages from real contacts with too many emoticons but that's maybe no bad thing.

    A good rule of thumb, if a large company is giving away a large amount in vouchers, it's a scam. Too good to be true? It usually is...

    I've had the Next one as well

    damn so jealous, could do with £250 quid vouchers

    fool is easily parted with there money

    I've had loads of fake PayPal emails this week, about 3 or 4 daily.

    Hey, have you seen this apple.co.uk-promoo.com/ Free iPhone 7 from Apple. They are giving away free iPhones to celebrate 10 years, since the launch of their first iPhone. It's a limited offer so you better claim one while it lasts. I got mine ❤❤

    You should probably edit out that clickable link. Easy to accidentally click on it, especially on a mobile/tablet.
