Beware of  "WhatsApp Free Ultra-Light Wifi Signal Feature without Internet" Scam

WhatsApp users who have received the message below are asked to delete it and are advised not to follow the instructions in it. The message, which claims that WhatsApp users can get free 3G internet wherever they go for their WhatsApp application via a service called "Ultra-Light Wifi," "WhatsApp Free Wifi service" or "Free Wifi Signal," is a scam. Scammers are using the fake message or service to trick WhatsApp users into visiting the fraudulent website: "www.freee-whatsapp .cf," where they will be asked to invite 15 friends and complete surveys in order to get the so-called WhatsApp Free Wifi Signal. But, it doesn't matter how much friends WhatsApp users invite or how many surveys they complete, they will never receive the Ultra-Light Wifi service or WhatsApp Free Wifi Signal, because such service doesn't exist.

The Bogus WhatsApp Free Wifi, Ultra-Light Wifi or Free Wifi Signal Message

WhatsApp Free Wifi

http://freee-whatsapp .cf/

The bogus WhatsApp Free Wifi, Ultra-Light Wifi or Free Wifi Signal message has a link that will take potential victims to the fraudulent website: “www.freee-whatsapp .cf,” where they will be asked to invite their friends.

The Instructions on the Fraudulent WhatsApp Website

WhatsApp Messenger
Congratulations, your device supports the Ultra-Light Wifi

Invite Your 15 friends to get Free Wifi Signal

Activation
Invite Friends
Attention :
Whatsapp color will turns into blue when the service is activated
Service will be activated when we receive 15 friends requests

But, WhatsApp users who invite their friends are only helping to spread the scam to other WhatsApp users, and those who complete the surveys are being be tricked into sending their personal information to spammers and rogue online marketers, who will start sending them spam or unsolicited email messages. Also, potential victims who complete the surveys may also be tricked into registering for premium phone services and downloading malicious apps.

Remember, scammers will create other fake WhatsApp websites, so WhatsApp users should look out for similar scams on other websites. And, WhatsApp users should always go to blog.whatsapp.com to confirm the authenticity of a message that is related to WhatsApp, before following any instruction in it.

      Never respond to email scams because the scammers will know your email address is active and will continue to send you more scams or spam.

    How can they spam or email you without your email address? They can't spam you on Whatsapp either,
    app just says 15 responses and the service is activated. No survey, no details.

    I'm sure it's dodgy but its unclear how they would benefit?

      Some of scams tell potential victims to visit a fraudulent website (read it in the article above), where they are asked to complete surveys that request personal information.

      Once the surveys are complete, the potential victims will be told that they qualify for some bogus or deceptive promotion, where they will be asked for their email addresses, telephone numbers and other personal information.

          You did the right scanning your phone with your antivirus. Check your phone for unfamiliar apps and remove them.
