Fake message: 'Andy & John, director of MSN and whatsApp'

WhatsApp becoming the most popular app on the android market is now facing a regular spam message problem leading to  false information to the whatsApp user. Here is an example. "Hello, we are Andy & John, director of MSN and now also whatsApp, this message is to inform all of our users that we have only 530 accounts available for new phones, and that our servers have recently been very congested, so we asking for your help to solve this problem. We need our active users to forward this message to every single person in your contact list in order to confirm our active users that use WhatsApp, if you do not send this message to all your contacts to WhatsApp, then your account will remain inactive with the consequence of losing all your contacts".
This message was circulated in several countries including United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, Indonesia, India, Kuwait etc. TechwhatsApp.com confirmed that this message was fake and was created by group of students from china in order to interrupt the whatsApp service.
One more spam message made entry in last February forcing to share the message to at least 25 people for getting your whatsApp an additional 50 new smileys.

Hope this is helpful.
