WhatsApp Scam

A new WhatsApp scam is currently circulating Madeira.
The scam message reads:

“Hi Dad, hi Mom, I need money, I lost my phone and I’m using this number!”

This message, via WhatsApp, has reached hundreds of parents, many of whom have been so worried that they have sent money to the number, with one terrified parent transferring €2,500 to the number quoted.

So far, the Judicial Police have received 14 complaints related to the scam, and they ask all parents to be careful and verify the facts before sending money.
