Porn Hoax messages on WhatApp targeting kids – 09/13/18

 

 

There is a disturbing new hoax making the rounds in WhatsApp?  Children are receiving messages in in the app from someone named Olivia who claims to know them, but has a new phone number.  Once they establish contact, they send  the child a link to porn sites. Although this is currently happening in the UK, hoaxes like this can quickly spread.

This would also be a good time to review with your child how to stay safe online, and remind them to not forward hoax messages.
