Parents and children beware.
Sick suicide challenge Momo is being inserted into children’s YouTube shows such as Peppa Pig, Fortnite and You Tube. Parents think their child is safe watching a normal episode of their favourite programme – but a ‘Momo’ clip has been spliced into the YouTube clip.
The ‘Momo’ character – a scary doll’s face – interrupts the show and threatens the viewer into contacting a number on WhatsApp.
Some parents say their children have been told they will be “killed in their sleep” if they do not contact ‘Momo’.
Once the child has connected, the shadowy people behind the ‘Momo’ account can send what they like to the child on WhatsApp.
Please warn your children to be careful and keep all personal information safe.
