Neil Mitchell has been alerted to a WhatsApp scam.

One woman told 3AW Mornings she’d lost $8000 as a result.

Judi Jones said it began with a WhatsApp message from her “son” telling her it was his new number because his phone had broken.

A discussion about what had happened to the phone followed, with the scammer responding “normally” to questions from Judi.

Then they asked for money.
