Sent message via email so hacked work email then send messages through Whatsapp. Caller: I-phone Scammers
Didn't send me iPhone 11 and blocked me. Money gone.
My new colleague went through the same. This scammer sent a work email pretending to be the company company director that has urgent task for him to do right now. Asked for my colleague Whatsapp number, then manipulated him via Whatsapp messages. Asked my colleague to go to a shop and buy 10 x Google play gift cards urgently as he is in a conference and can't talk right now. My colleague didn't check with anyone in the office and went & spent $500 from his own money. The money got used immediately. None can refund this back to him now.
How can we stop this? How many more people will get scammed this abominable way?!
Same thing, emailed my work email as though it was my boss urgently needing GooglePlay giftcards and for me to send my number for Whatsapp. Very pushy and abrupt. Peter Caune under a business whatsapp account is the name that came up when I went to save the Whatsapp number. Scary that they have my work email when my work address is in the signature. So wrong. Got caught today. He sent work email pretending to be the boss. Then add WhatsApp, ask for google play gift cards urgently and he is in a meeting. $500 first then $1000. The money got used within 10 minutes.
Why can’t we do anything to stop this thief? He must have to sell to get cash.
