The fastest way to spread rumours is WhatsApp, and sometimes it’s the scams that float to reach a billion users the app has.

It seems there is a new kind of scam that has been floating over the app. The scam is tricking people into believing that their WhatsApp will soon stop working, and in order to keep using the service, they need to pay a certain amount.

“Your subscription has expired,” reads the message. “To verify your account and purchase a lifetime subscription for just 0.99 GDP simply tap on this link.”


We have recently seen a worldwide attack of Ransomware, which took several computers on hostage and demanded money to spare their important files.

This WhatsApp scam is, however, not that big of a threat but it’s better to be safe and not click on any suspicious link, even if it sent by a known contact.

Earlier this year, another scam was floating on WhatsApp that claimed to make Jio Free until 31st December 2017.

Usually what these apps do is, they ask you to install an app or two for which they are paid on the basis on per installs. But if it asks to you install an app from a source other than Play Store, you should better stay away from it.

WhatsApp used to charge a certain fee $0.99/year after one year of Free usage, but it has become completely Free ever since Facebook bought it. So you won’t have to pay anything to use it.

Educate yourself with all the cool WhatsApp tricks. Check out the post.
