One of the affected WhatsApp users confirmed that
his phone number was changed and he was automatically
removed from a WhatsApp group he belongs to.
The supposed hacker then sent messages
to the group about an investment that guarantees
the investor receiving double
of the amount invested within 30 minutes.
To further investigate the hack,
a call was put through to the supposed hacker
to enquire about the advertised investment.
The hacker claimed that

He then asked the caller to send the desired
investment amount to
an account number that he provided.
