"Received SMS from this unknown number saying, "Hello. Can you all install WhatsApp on your work phone at some time so I can set up a group chat. Have a great long weekend everyone" with a sun emoji. Weird. Highly unlikely to be work-related given tis the weekend so suspect phishing scam."
"Got a call from the above number to my mobile. when I said hello no one answered and absolutely no sound was coming from another side.
I rang back and phone picked up straight away but no sound, not even a sound of the phone being picked up but the call went through. Just dead silence. Very strange.
I had the exact same thing happen earlier in the day on number (02) 8955 4859."
"Caller identified themselves as someone who was interested in buying an item from me from Gumtree. Emailed her my bank details plus i gave her my mobile. 24 hours later, no money in my bank account - asked me to store the item - realised i was scammed so my notified bank."
