Case 1. [Beware of mobile phone Trojan viruses stealing online banking account numbers and passwords]

Mr. He in Beijing suddenly received a text message containing a link address from a friend. He never expected that a mobile phone Trojan virus was hidden in it. This mobile phone Trojan virus usually sends text messages in the name of friends you know, and steals the user's mobile phone address book, online banking account password and intercepts quick payment verification code and other information by clicking on the mobile phone text message. Once the user clicks on this text message, it means that the virus will continue to spread to every contact in the mobile address book under a new name.

Tip: If you receive such unknown information with a URL link, please do not click on it easily. If necessary, you can call the friend who sent the text message for verification to avoid personal information being stolen.

Case 2. [Part-time "likes" to make money are unreliable]

Many netizens reported that someone on WeChat deceived netizens into committing fraud in the name of "part-time "likes" to make money." After investigation, there are indeed some "financial companies" on WeChat whose main business is to recruit part-time job seekers who can earn money through "likes". They require part-time employees to pay a certain entrance fee when they join the company before they can earn through "likes". It was a commission-based job, but after the job seeker successfully paid the fee, there was no news from the other party and he could no longer be contacted.

Tip: Online part-time jobs are diverse and the threshold is low. You need to be particularly cautious when looking for part-time jobs, especially those part-time jobs that require you to pay handling fees, deposits, mortgages, etc. first to prevent financial losses.
