Message that is currently circulating this time is:
“Warning from an IT buddy that a video comes out tomorrow from WhatApp called martinelli do not open it, it hacks your phone and nothing will fix it. Spread the word”
This hoax first came about in July of this year 2017, but mainly was is Spanish with just a couple of English versions, now it seems its back but in English.
For anyone preparing to uninstall the app, rest assured, this is a piece of chain-mail identified as a hoax by Spanish police earlier this year.
Lets talk about it,
Firstly if someone whats to hack your phone they will not tell you in the first therefore rather than panicking re-read and think about it before you it send or call people.
Sadly these hoax’s seem appear all the time, but they pray on the people who are no technical minded, these can catch the best of us at times. This leads to hundreds of people sharing a message that just isn’t real!
If you are one of those people, first thing you could do is too google it, trust me someone will have already written about saying its a hoax.
Let me know if you have received one of these messages?
