Have you read any beer scams recently? Let us know if yes. Bars and pubs remain closed as the fourth week of the United Kingdom coronavirus locking down begins. Due to this lockdown, people have been drinking more harmful beverages at home and are buying more harmful beverages.

One con artist appears to be trying to make a profit from Heineken Whatsapp Scand2022by pretending to be Heineken, the world-famous Dutch Brewery. They may try to get people to accept free beer kegs and steal their personal details.

The Heineken Scam

WhatsApp users in the United Kingdom get a fake message purporting to be an “offer” that claims that a prominent beverage company is giving away free beverage containers.

You are asked to click on a link from their bogus web site. There you will see a message that says “HEINEKEN STAY HOME with 4 FREE kegs” (probably Heineken Cooler Competitionscam ). After which, you will be prompted by a survey. The survey will only take one minute and you will be eligible to win the giveaway.

The popular messaging program WhatsApp is the target of the phishing hoax. It urges users to reveal their personal details so it can be saved or stolen later.

It doesn’t offer any freebies. You’ll only get a hacked bank account and stolen money. The scam was first discovered in 2018 and has continued to exist ever since.

When and where did this free Heineken first start?

In 2018, individuals began getting fraudulent Heineken correspondence. Hackers seem to have changed the name of the hoax. They now focus on the COVID-19 Lockdown as their primary message. They are also offering free beverages to encourage people inside.

Heineken made public acknowledgment in 2018 of the WhatsApp fraud as fiction. Heineken spoke out immediately after the fraud was discovered.

They stated that Heineken was giving away free kegs as a tribute to its 140th birthday. Codegreen Solutions recipients were encouraged to share the news.

Conclusion:

Consider a Heineken company sending you a WhatsApp message offering to send free products. In such a case, the government recommends that the message not be clicked on, that attachments not be opened, that replies are not sent, and that you visit the government website to report it.
