Many users of WhatsApp have received a message over the last number of days, warning of a malicious piece of software that can hack your phone in 10 seconds.
It was identified as a hoax earlier this year by the Spanish police as they found no viable threat from these messages. Tech Expert Jess Kelly has more details on the so called ‘ Martinelli scam’.
She said: “This is a hoax, there is no viable threat. “It reminds me of the chain messages I used to get in the post when I was a kid, this is just a modern version of that.”
