If you get a text message offering you a job with a wa.me link, beware. It’s a scam. The domain wa.me is owned by WhatsApp and used for the app’s “click to chat” feature. It allows users to begin a chat session with anybody without having their phone number saved in the user’s phone’s address book.” Using https://wa.me/ plus a phone number, anybody could just send this link via email, messenger, or SMS. When the recipient clicks it, WhatsApp will open and automatically initiate a chat with the number from the link.
