WhatsApp users warned not to interact with Easter Egg scam

WhatsApp users are being warned not to interact with an Easter Egg scam doing the rounds.

It comes as messages are being forwarded to people and group chats on the messaging service, as well as on Facebook, promising free Cadbury Easter Eggs.

The link, which an example of one can be seen below, says people can win up to 5,000 free gifts and a massive Cadbury hamper.

The confectionery giant has urged people to avoid the scam in a statement on Twitter.

"Weโ€™re aware of circulating posts on social media claiming to offer a free Easter Chocolate basket.

We can confirm this has not been generated by us & we urge consumers not to interact with it or share any data.
