Fake Message: "Hello, I. Am VARUN PULYANI director of whatsapp.."

Be-Awared-of-WhatsApp-Scam-MessagesHi recently I found a fake propagating message on WhatsApp saying WhatsApp has been sold to Facebook so you should send a specific message to 10 of your contacts so that you will get your WhatsApp icon changed into 'F' and if you didn't so your account will be deleted from their server. The message again continues like this - "Message from Jim Balsamic (CEO of WhatsApp) we have had an over usage of user names on WhatsApp Messenger. We are requesting all users to forward this message to their entire contact list. If you do not forward this message, we will take it as your account is invalid and it will be deleted within the next 48 hours. Please DO NOT ignore this message or WhatsApp will no longer recognize your activation."
I don't understand why people are keep sending these sorts of fake messages without knowing its authenticity. The whole message is as below.

The message also telling the way to earn some money by promoting a website sending to 25 of your contacts. But the funny fact here is - looking to the URL of the website, it is clear that the website is made under a free website provider, that is why the wapka.mobi is there as tale of the URL, here you see, the website they themselves are not spending any money at least to book a Domain Name by giving ~$8 (500 Rupees), they are giving their promoters 500 rupees per 25 contacts.!! It is amazing. Really a foolish thing.

 All I can say that, don't be a victim of these fake messages. If WhatsApp or Facebook has planned to change your icon they simply release new update of their App. They don't what their users to take effort to apply their new features.
