In the message, her “daughter” had begged for help and said she urgently needed cash.
The mother shared her WhatsApp exchange with a Bedford Facebook group to warn others of the danger.
The full first message read, “Hey mom, it’s me. I’ve got a new number, you can delete the old one. “
And after a cheeky reply from the fraudster, the mother was initially convinced that it was her daughter.
When mom asked which “I” it was, they said to her: “Your oldest and cutest child xx.”
They asked for help with two payments and told her her daughter’s bank account had been blocked for fraud.
The mother said, “Fortunately, I called my daughter to talk it over instead of just doing it on WhatsApp! Be careful!!”
Another warning to parents of babies came from a mother on TikTok.
Mums and dads are begged by mothers to control baby’s fingers and toes.
