Lloyds Bank issues scam warning as £1.5million lost to fake WhatsApp texts – 'It's a lie!'


“Confirm payment details before you pay an invoice or bill. Call the person or business on a number you trust, not one from an invoice or message.”

Detective Chief Inspector Craig Mullish, from the City of London Police, gave advice to those dealing with fake WhatsApp messages from scammers.

He said: “If you receive a message like this from a friend or family member, don’t send any money until you’ve had a chance to call them and confirm their identity.

“Taking a moment to stop and think before parting with your money or information could keep you safe.”
