Warning! Whatsapp

Just had a warning on Facebook. If you receive a video message on Whatsapp as of tomorrow 7th Nov, called ''MARTINELLI'' inviting you to upgrade to ''WHATSAPP GOLD'' DO NOT OPEN IT! Please delete it immediately as it is a serious virus and will go straight to your phone and ruin all you have on your phones. You will not be able to fix it.

The person who warned me is a very astute, respectable businesswoman and I trust her. It has been on the radio today.

Re: Warning! Whatsapp

Thanks for that SG.
I have sent your warning to my children, my brother and sisters who l use WhatsApp with the most.

WhatsApp has probably got its drawbacks but itís great for speaking to my son in Australia, for free!
