Social Media Impersonation / Whatsapp Takeover Scam
This recently occurred with my mother and niece. My niece received a WhatsApp message from my mother requesting 2k, although my mother hadn't sent it. The message appeared to be from my mother's number. Fortunately, my niece double-checked by messaging my mother directly, revealing it could have been a scammer who somehow sent the message from my mother's number. Stay vigilant against such scams.
