Today I received a video in WhatsApp from an unknown sender (a telephone number is shown but not saved to my contact list). The movie showing Homer Simpson as a thumbnail was sent with the message "Remember that times xD".
There are a few remarkable things:
- English is not my native language (and thus generally not the one of my contacts)
- the profile picture shows a couple (male and female) who are friends of me (!!!)
- the guy is in my contact list
- the gal is not
- while I would expect a message of the man, I would be surprised about a message of her
- I did not yet download the video of course
Is it a scam? How does it work? How should I react?
