Dubai: The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEA) has warned of massive scams through WhatsApp in the name of promotion as part of Deva’s 30th anniversary celebrations. Deva officials warned that it was a scam to extort money. Deva also clarified that under no circumstances should one click on the WhatsApp links in the Deva Anniversary Offer or open emails or attachments.
Attachments should only be opened after verifying that the mail address is valid. Such phishing emails can be used to access personal information, including credit card information. There are widespread rumors that Deva is celebrating her thirtieth birthday by giving away free gifts and encouraging people to click on the link to find out what they are. Authorities said Deva had received notifications that many people who clicked on the link had lost large sums of money from their accounts.
Fraudsters click on the link with the message and ask you to provide some personal information to win the annual prizes. If you enter that information, nine flash boxes will appear on the screen. The content of the message is that if you click on one of them you will get 8000 dirhams. The joke is that clicking on any of the flash boxes will hit the prize. Winners will need to send this message to five WhatsApp groups or 20 friends in order to receive a prize. Also, you need to download an app within a week and register with your email id. Earlier, such scams took place as part of Lulu Hypermarket’s twentieth anniversary celebrations. The scam involved leaking people’s bank account and credit card details.
