The new mode of telephone fraud: calls that use as bait the third dose of the coreavirus vaccine

The National Institute of Cybersecurity (NNCIBE) has alerted this Wednesday that calls have been detected by classroom social security, in which they are asked for a code they have received through SMS on their mobile devices.

During the call it is indicated that it is a verification code to receive the third dose of the VACCO against the COVID but, in reality, it is the code that sends whatsapp to be able to log in from another device.

The Inibe, based in Leon, advises those who have been victims of this fraud, and their whatsapp account has been stolen, that they try to contact their administrators to try to recover the control. He warns in a statement that it is a process that can last a few days, but emphasizes that "it is the best solution."

However, in case the problem has not been solved after reporting the application itself, it offers the option to resort to the Internet service provider to make a number change.

Also, remember that these stolen accounts are used by cybercriminals to try to speak with the victim contacts and steal their whatsapp account with the same technique.

Therefore, it recommends those who have already been victims who notify their contacts from what happened by another way (phone call, email, social network, SMS ...), so that they are aware that it is not their known who You are writing or requesting your verification code.
