These days WhatsApp is synonymous to the texting, as everyone seems to be (“Hey There! I’m Using WhatsApp”) having a WhatsApp account. Well, why wouldn’t one indulge in this service, you get free texting, can share images, location, as well as now place call to other WhatsApp contact and you won’t be charged extra. Just the data charges! Moreover, the conversations you are having on this service are now fully encrypted, with a recent roll out of an update.

A Facebook-owned company has recently been reported to add a video calling ability on its service. So, it is kind of obvious that users would want to experience these interesting features. And with the company making this service free in India and many parts of the world, it has really escalated the users. That is one of the reasons why this new scam is circling online.

WhatsApp Gold

WhatsApp Gold, a paid variation of the service has gone viral, as users are claiming to receive a message like, “Hey Finally Secret WhatsApp golden version has been leaked”. This link will ask you to download an apk and claims that it includes a swathe of advanced features such as video calling, which has been in the pipeline as we reported earlier, as well as ability to delete the message and stop the contact to read the deleted message. Moreover, it has been claimed that with WhatsApp Gold users can send up to 100 pictures as once, which is limited to the free service.

But let us aware you that it is a scam do not get fooled by this message if it pops up on your WhatsApp chat by some unknown number. From the reports, it looks like the aim of this hack is to trick users into downloading a secret upgrade, which would offer you exclusive features. Currently, it’s unclear how many users have been targeted by the scam.

Again, we recommend WhatsApp users who are receiving such messages on their account should not click on the message link. If the message is coming from an unknown number, then they can report the user and block them, making at least sure that they don’t receive a message from that number. Because if accidentally any family member or friend clicks on that message on your handset, who knows what will happen. Your device may end up getting infected with some kind of malware. So, beware and don’t click on those links.
