One example of this hoax message says: “They are going to start circulating a video on WhatsApp that shows how the Covid19 curve is flattening in Argentina.

“The file is called ‘Argentina is doing it’, do not open it or see it, it hacks your phone in 10 seconds and it cannot be stopped in any way. Pass the information on to your family and friends.”

If you’ve been sent such a message it’s likely just because a friend or family member has been left concerned after receiving it themselves, and are trying to stop loved ones falling for a potential scam.

The way to do your own part to stop such a hoax from spreading is merely to ignore it and not send it on yourself to others.

WhatsApp on their website has guidance on how to deal with hoax messages, and tell-tale signs of how to spot one.
