Rediroff.com, the most recent WhatsApp scam, can be used to steal personal and financial information from users. According to reports, scammers are using WhatsApp to trick users into disclosing personal information such as bank and credit card information.
Windows PCs, as well as iOS and Android devices, have been infected by the spam link.
A dangerous link is delivered to WhatsApp users in order to infect their systems, according to News18. According to CNBC, the hoax has affected a large number of people who were enticed by the promise of pricey goods.
How this WhatsApp scam really works?
When the user clicks on the link, a new page appears, instructing them to complete a survey in exchange for a prize. The user is then sent to a page where they must provide personal information such as their name, age, address, bank information, and other details.
The details can then be used to perform fraudulent transactions or for other criminal purposes once they have been shared with the scammers. The information given can also be used to install potentially hazardous and undesired apps on the user’s device.
