Scam Whatsapp Groups?

Solved!

Scam Whatsapp Groups?

Hi,

Just would like to check because I have recently been added into a whatsapp group by people claiming to be working with Spotify to increase awareness while letting you "earn money" at the same when you "spread awareness".

 

Is this a legitimate group created by Spotify or can I rule this out as a new type of scam method and leave the group?

Hey @Bellavis,

 

Thanks for coming to the Community.

 

I can confirm that this group and all other similar groups are not officially run by Spotify and they're not affiliated with Spotify in any way. 

 

I've made sure that the group gets reported to the right team and if you encounter any additional groups, feel free to let me know.

 

Thanks again 🙂

hi. just to let you know that this group is stil going on, luckily i google to check about it and i was right that its a scam group. 

Hey @cameralovey,

 

Thanks for letting me know! This was already reported to the right team at Spotify, so there's unfortunately not much else that can be done at the moment.

 

If you're in the group and there's a button to report it as spam/scam, feel free to do so.

 

Thanks again!

Is this considered as a scam whatsapp group?

I have recently been added to one of these groups, I am wondering where and how they have gotten our contacts?  Is there a possible data linkage in Spotify?  Please do look into this and revert to all of the users.  

Hey @Amelia225,

 

Thanks for reaching out.

 

I can assure you that Spotify is secure and their records are protected.

 

They always check for leaks online from other services and alert those who might’ve been affected to change their passwords.

 

Unfortunately, they don’t have other details to share about your logins on other services. But rest assured they have dedicated teams working to protect your personal information.

Hope this clears things up 🙂

I registered and paid for Spotify yesterday. Today,  I got added to the group. Its too much of a coincidence, no? 

I've just been added to one WhatsApp group called Spotify music MC134...

Hi Guys, This group scam is still going on, today morning my number got added to that group then I googled and landed here.

 

I was 100% sure that this is scam group, please take a action.

This continues to happen. I was added to a whatsapp group A/A08/Spotify Music Group L2, as soon as I warned them that what they were proposing was a scam, I was removed from the group.

 

Please report this to the right person.

Thank you

 A new group was created claiming to be from Spotify. F/R2/Spotify Music Group V18

Hi!

I want to report this one 

H/R16/Spotify Music Group F17

Is this website legit and through Spotify third-party?

Hey @darkjak911,

 

Nope 🙂 Definitely not a site from Spotify.
