WhatsApp Promotion
A guy named Dr Chris Owen (sounds respectable) is using a phone number from Pakistan to send plain text messages to phone numbers in Pakistan. He is not sending WhatsApp messages, even though he claims to be distributing gifts on behalf of WhatsApp. He is adding a UK number (+44) to create further confusion or credibility.

GRIEVANCES
Fraudulent Representation
Illegal Acts
Misrepresentation

https://www.shouldianswer.co.uk/ seems like a good app to check if the number calling you is trustworthy; I have not installed it but hope that it allows to make a report in case of a bad experience.
