The Facebook offers a very secure platform for developers to create applications, but nevertheless some of them insist on using the site for scamming. This is the case of another fraudulent application, which uses a well – known name: the WhatsApp. A false application appeared yesterday and is already making victims in the largest social network in the world.
The application requests access to personal data of users and also the data that other friends have shared with you. After that redirects the user to another domain outside of Facebook, where are displayed advertisements and other applications on Facebook, all probably also fraudulent. Break, the app also sends application invitations to all list of friends – this without asking.
It makes sense a messaging application that is linked to a number of mobile phone offer a web version, so this is a good indication that the program is false. In addition, the application URL is very suspicious, ‘yesiamback’.
A search for WhatsApp Facebook revealed another 10 applications that appear to have the same goal, but they have been blocked by the social network. The only apparently remains active was what began to victims yesterday.
We recommend that if you receive an invitation to this application, block and report it as spam for it to be taken down as soon as possible. And apologize to your friends would also be good.
Thanks to Daniel Vilhas readers the screenshot and Valter Pando by the alert.
