Alert for a new scam that circulates as a chain on WhatsApp

When I spin the wheel the system will ask you to download an application on your phone and keep it open for at least 30 seconds, so do not do this step, because this may be a download of Trojan viruses that can invade your device.

A first clue to know that it is not real is that Amazon is not 30 years old as they say, because it was founded in 1994. Also, the link attached to the message is not Amazon’s official URL.

The term “identity fraud” is used in computer science to describe a set of techniques designed to deceive a person to perform actions that they should not do. This technology allows third parties to access your data and funds.

While a Trojan virus is a seemingly harmless program, but when it runs, it provides an attack that allows you to remotely access any infected device.

Some signs that indicate that your cell phone may have a virus:

  • Some applications hang frequently or hang.
  • The cell phone uses high data for no reason.
  • Ads in apps for no apparent reason and constantly.
  • The battery runs out in no time.
  • The device begins to overheat.
