Beware of "Whatsapp Video Calling Feature" Fake Invitational Messages

Scammers have already started taking advantage of the launch of Whatsapp's new video calling feature. The scammers are tricking people in visiting fake Whatsapp websites that will trick them into sharing the same websites with their friends, by claiming if they do so, they will enable the new Whatsapp Video Calling feature. Once such fake website is "www.whatappvideoenable .com."

Please continue reading below.

Below, is a sample of one of the fake messages being sent by scammers to Whatsapp users.

Sample: “Whatsapp Video Calling Feature” Fake Invitational Message

“You're invited to try Whatsapp Video Calling feature.*

Activate at:

http://whatappvideoenable .com/

Only people with the invitation can enable this feature"

Whatsapp users who have received messages claiming that they are invited to try the new Whatsapp Video Calling feature are asked to delete them. This is because they do not need an invitation to enable or use the new feature; it will be rolled out to them within the next few days, in their next Whatsapp update.

All Whatsapp users need to do now is to patiently wait for the new automatic update that will enable the new Whatsapp Video Calling featue, and do not go and follow instructions in some fake message, to click on a link that may take them to a phishing website that will steal their information, or to a malicious website that will infect their mobile devices with a virus or malware.
