Cunning WhatsApp scam leaves mum $8000 out-of-pocket
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.
