Analysis:

A message doing rounds on WhatsApp comes to offer a best deal of buying Flipkart’s best selling mobile phone Moto G4 Plus for just Rs 599. The message carries a link, wherefrom the user can allegedly buy the best deal on Flipkart before the sale ends. Do not get carried away by the offer on WhatsApp, the so called best deal bait is just a Scam and hoax.

We believe the story in question exists in few other versions, with similar links using Flipkart name in the URL, which as a matter of fact, has got nothing to do with official Flipkart site or service offer. To check the offer, as we clicked the link that comes with the message, we were taken to what appears like a sales page with some random information and Buy Now link. When clicked, a message appeared saying ‘You are one step away from ordering your Moto G4 Plus In 599 Rs.’ along with yet another Buy Now link. Upon clicking that, a certain ‘Human Verification’ message asked us to share the offer on WhatsApp to 8 Different Groups/Friends before being able to enter Delivery Address. After done that, when clicked for entering the same, we were redirected to other websites offering software downloads and promotional stuff. In some cases, users were asked to download an app to book the offer. It is also possible that the offered downloads can contain malicious software. The process is quite similar to couple of earlier scams on WhatsApp, Reliance Jio Unlimited 4G LYF Smartphone at Just Rs 99 and another one offering various Discount Vouchers. In all the cases, the offered product, Moto G4 Plus for Rs 599 in current case, did not exist.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax and Scam.
