Every time there are changes, on something like Facebook or WhatsApp the tricksters try it on again. There is, yes another WhatsApp hoax fooling users and its really just a reworded version of the last whatsapp hoax message and the one before that…. This time they are using the recent down time to fool users in to thinking this is real.
I was alerted of the new hoax a few days ago when someone asked me if it was real. I wondered if I should warn users, but thought most people would understand by now. It seems not – as many worried people have been arriving here all day, looking for answers.
