    I got a message on WhatsApp announcing that I had won the WhatsApp Lottery. What do you do to avoid being "attacked" this way?

    I did not respond to the message and only opened it after 3 days after it was sent. What risks do I run? Does not the fact that you deleted the message sooner entail some danger?

      The message is not malicious. It is just a scam to trick you into sending the lottery scammers behind it money.

    I got a similar message but it had Indian PM Modi's name instead. This is how it goes:

    "What's app will b off
    From 11.30pm to 6:00 am daily

    Declared by central govt.

    Message from narendra modI (PM) we

    send this to 8 people to activate the new whatsapp..

    Saturday morning whatsapp will become chargeable. If you have at least 10 contacts send them this message. In this way we will see that you are an avid user and your logo will become blue (🔵) and will remain free. (As discussed in the paper today. Whatsapp will cost 0.01€ per message. Send this message to 10 people. When you do the light will turn blue otherwise whatsapp will activate billing."

    It's TRUE ...... U get blue TICKS"
