A phone call prevented me from getting scammed

Social Media Impersonation / Whatsapp Takeover Scam
This scam uses the name of IDA, covid-19 as an excuse that we are able to claim some money if our business or livelihood gets affected by covid-19.

Someone used my aunt's facebook account to send FB messenger to me, saying she claimed 150K business claims from ida that helps people during covid-19. said will send us a private link to help submit for claim and said was a global program. Thought i was really talking to my aunt at first, but then i started to wonder what business was she doing to claim so much, and why use messenger instead of normal whatsapp? so i called her and realised she didn't send such things.
