A 2016 hoax message aimed at duping WhatsApp users into downloading a virus has made a return, but it does not make any more sense than it did before.

The WhatsApp Gold message is back again, promising to give hidden premium features to the one who downloads it. But its only a hoax and downloads malware onto your phone.

The message reads: “If you know anyone using WhatsApp you might pass on this. An IT colleague has advised that a video comes out tomorrow from WhatsApp called martinelli do not open it, it hacks your phone and nothing will fix it. Spread the word.”

It adds: “If you receive a message to update the Whatsapp to Whatsapp Gold, do not click !!!!!

“Now said on the news this virus is difficult and severe. Pass it on to all.”

This is not the first time WhatsApp has been prey to such a hoax. In India in 2016, a viral message did the rounds that there was a ‘Ministry of Internal Regulation’ which was recording and saving phone conversations and monitoring social networking platforms.
