Beware of "Why did you Block me on Whatsapp" Fake Messages Being Sent by Scammers

Online users who have received emails like the one below, with a message asking why they have blocked the sender on WhatsApp, should delete the email messages or flag them as spam so that they are automatically sent to their spam/junk folder. This is because the messages are being sent by scammers to trick the recipients into responding and subsequently asking them to visit malicious websites that will infect their computers or mobile devices with malware. Or, to visit phishing websites that steal personal information, online account credentials, and financial information.
