In order to process it, they explained to him that «They were going to send you a link to a tutorial on WhatsApp to know how to do it for free, safe and fast”, he commented.
“We did not pay much attention to it, after a few minutes he opened the link and his cell phone went off, when he turned it on, they had emptied the money from Homebanking and I could not enter their social networks, “he lamented.
In addition, he warned that “all his contacts had been sent the same link, five minutes later they called me and other acquaintances«.
What is the other type of scam that they have used in Cipolletti
As explained by Andrea, the possible victim, They communicated for her through the WhatsApp application.
The argument they used was that they wanted to give him a turn. “I told them that I was going to go on my own because I did not know when I had free time to go, he rushed me a bit and asked me when I could go,” she described.
After telling him what day he was availablee, the modality they wanted to use to steal data was for me to send them a code that they were going to pass on to it. «He tells me: I send you a code and you then tell me. I almost gave it to him, but my son stopped me, and I didn’t give him the whole number,” he commented.
