New Whatsapp scam in Pakistan by callers pretending to be PTA officials

A new Whatsapp scam in Pakistan has the users scratching their heads. Users have been receiving fake calls from individuals who claim to be PTA officials and ask for verification codes that have been sent to the users’ numbers. By using these codes, these impostors gain access to Whatsapp accounts of users and use them to their advantage.

However, such scams can be avoided by adding two-step verification to Whatsapp account. By enabling this feature on Whatsapp, you will be prompted to enter a 6-digit PIN code, which will be required every time you want to log in to your account.
