A translated transcript of a conversation (with emphasis) I had with a person who sent me a spam message inviting me to Hike, last month:
Spammer: Hello Nikhil: Hello. I got a message on WhatsApp from you for Hike. Who are you and how did you get my number? Spammer: I’m *****. There’s Google Plus. I got it from there. Nikhil: You got my number from Google Plus? Spammer: Yes Nikhil: No, but why are you sending me a Hike message? Spammer: I didn’t know. There’s Hike Messenger. Nikhil: Yes.
