“These rumours are not uncommon,” he added.
“The only thing that gives them any credence is people re-tweeting them and circulating them.”

“Please disregard the message and do not resend it.
“We do not use WhatsApp to mass message our user base, nor would we ever send you a message advertising gifts or asking you to forward a message to your contacts.”
