I got a call from this phone number 09076431679 this afternoon, but as soon as my phone rang the phone number was flagged by truecaller as “Scammer be very careful” I picked the call anyway.
He told me there was gonna be a WhatsApp group meeting today in a group I am currently a member of. He told me to give him the four-digit number I got as a text message from WhatsApp for him to verify my participation and I told him I hadn’t received any text message from WhatsApp.
He insisted and told me to check my message while he waited on the call. I checked and there were no new messages from WhatsApp or anyone. He told me I would be receiving the message shortly and that he was gonna hang up and call back to get the code accompanying the message to verify my participation in the WhatsApp meeting, he then hung up.
I went on WhatsApp immediately and I saw a popup notification on my WhatsApp screen telling me someone had requested my WhatsApp verification code. It told me to ignore it if I wasn’t the one who requested the code and warned me not to share the code with anyone.
Moments later, I got a message with a four-digit code from WhatsApp with the warning ” Don’t share this code with anyone”, but I already knew not to share with anyone because the cunt was trying to hack my WhatsApp profile. so I deleted the message immediately.
Then his call came in again, I just kept hanging up till I blocked him from my phone and WhatsApp. I called the admin and he said there was no meeting scheduled for any time, I warned him about the presence of a hacker in his WhatsApp group and exited the group immediately. Had I given him the code he asked for I would have lost access to my WhatsApp because he would have taken over my WhatsApp profile.
Take note of the phone number 09076431679 and be security conscious on all platforms.
