WhatsApp Offers 1000GB Free Internet ! - It's Too Good To be True So It Isn't

Nope. What’s App is not offering 1000GB of Free Internet Data. The security researchers at ESET have reported on a new click fraud scam.

"The campaign starts with users receiving a fraudulent promotion message that reads, “WhatsApp Offers 1000GB Free Internet!” The message also includes a link, which if clicked, redirects users to a page that asks them a series of questions in the form of a survey.

Furthermore, to spread the campaign, the victims are asked to share the message with at least 30 more people in order to claim the reward. The researchers, call this ‘merely a way to boost the campaign’s reach’.

However, ESET notes: Even though in this case we found no evidence that clicking the link led to the installation of malicious software or that there was any intention to phish for personal information, it doesn’t mean that this cannot change at any time.
