Guinness WhatsApp scam - techbuzzireland

Another day another scam has just landed on WhatsApp and this time Guinness maker Diageo are apparently giving away free mini fridges full of beer for Fathers Day which is quickly approaching, in fact I got two of these text in succession and you can see the screenshots below as what you will see on your device but do not open the link.

In the so called quiz you will be asked a few questions then you will be given three chance to open a parcel and it is most likely you will be told you won with so many mini fridges left which changes every time you enter, so it is certainly a scam and it should be ignored

We have contacted Guinness for a statement on this and will revert back if we hear back from them. As always you should be vigilant and if it looks too good to be true it most likely is and there is many scams doing the rounds of late so beware. Update! A spokesperson since has stated they have nothing to do with the scam.

  1. I fell for this after it was sent to me by a friend and ended up forwarding it to a bunch of people (which is a requirement to claim your prize after you ‘win’). What is the point of this – has it exposed my phone to anything malicious?
