    These are very dangerous scammers, they use various methods to obtain account/card/email details.

    Get to your bank ASAP if you notice any strange payments.

    Be aware of dangerous links by SMS or email.

    This caller tries to clone my WhatsApp on another device. I received a message from Whatsapp stating "Your Whatsapp registration code was requested for your phone number. If you didn't do this, don't share this code with anyone"
    The security code supplied by WhatsApp then lists this number 0839195178 as the requesting number.
