Trivandrum: The Kerala Police while creating an alert to the general public said there have been recent reports of video call traps and scams on WhatsApp and Messenger. Attending a video call to a mobile phone will result in a pornographic video appearing on the other side, after which the phone will record the phone attendant’s face on the window screen and ask for money. They may threaten to send this video to our friends and relatives and ask for money.

The accused will post the video on social media and YouTube or will require money. Some have sent money for fear of defamation, but there have been complaints that such fraudulent groups have been threatening again, demanding more money. With the threat that the link will be sent to friends via social media, most people will give in to scammers.

They may already have access to our complete information through social media like Facebook. So blocking them or deactivating our account will not work. Rockets from countries such as the Philippines and Indonesia are active.

Remember this kind of trap when receiving video calls of strangers through WhatsApp could be disastrous.
