Alert! Beware Of This Scam WhatsApp Video Call Invitation URL

Yesterday, WhatsApp Video Calling Features was officially rolled out but surprisingly, a fake message has been circulating online recently on how to activate the video call feature.

HOW IT WORKS
The scam message being currently posted around on WhatsApp that completely deceives users on how to activate Whatsapp video call feature on their phone. This WhatsApp scam message is an invitation message that comes with a link to a website that prompts you to enable video calls by sharing the link to your friends and groups on whatsapp as you can see from image below.

Once you click the link (whatapp..net.videoenable.co) it takes you to a website that tricks you into clicking a button to invite friends and later sending you to another sponsored link. The scam appears real especially for non-suspecting people as you will be shown a fake progress bar that claims to enable the video calling feature on your WhatsApp.

HOW TO GET THE REAL VIDEO CALL
The only way to activate the WhatsApp video calling features is to download the latest update on Playstore. That's all. Beware!
