Warning: fraudsters are posing as family members on WhatsApp

Scammers using WhatsApp are posing as family members in order to manipulate victims into transferring money.

If you get a request for money in a message, it's always worth giving the sender a quick call to check the details before you go ahead, even if it's a close relative. Don't give security codes for any accounts to anyone.

Find out more about this scam and make sure you can spot if a message is a scam by visiting the Which? website or their Facebook post below.
