Those who use WhatsApp should be aware that, on 11 November, Whatsapp launched the STOP.THINK.CALL campaign, in partnership with Friends Against Scams.  The campaign aims to help educate the British public on how to protect themselves and their WhatsApp account from message based scams.

WhatsApp have enlisted Joel Dommett as a SCAMbassador for Friends Against Scams, once a victim of a scam himself, to help share some simple advice that can keep people safe.  Together they're calling on the British public to STOP.THINK.CALL before they respond to a suspicious or usual message.  Fore more information about the campaign, please visit this page
