A few months later, a chain promoting the contest returns to be on Whatsapp Heineken of 2022 which is giving away the winning of a mini fridge, but as happened in the past, even in this case, it is simply a scam. Unfortunately, the users who have been duped are numerous. They were asked to access a link and answer a questionnaire with a few questions, then to pay a very small financial contribution to obtain the prize.

The problem is that through this mechanism, the scammers obtain the credit card data of the unfortunates and log into the account easily, withdrawing money without their knowledge. Thus, in a short time, those who have fallen into fraud find themselves being robbed of their savings. The strategy is not new, in fact it is constantly being used to harm those who naively believe they are signing up for what apparently looked like a competition from a trustworthy brand.

“Heineken 2022 mini fridge competition”. What to do if you receive the scam message?

What should users who receive the contest message on Whatsapp do? Heineken 2022 with a mini fridge up for grabs, which is actually nothing more than a scam? First of all, it is essential not to fall into the trap and therefore avoid opening the related link. It is then important to inform the sender of the chain that it is a fraud, so that he can do the same with all the other people he sent it to.

If, on the other hand, it is too late, because you have entered your credit card data on the platform, you must immediately ensure that the criminals cannot enter your account. This is possible only by contacting your bank, which will act accordingly, probably blocking the movements.
