Because of the proximity and similarity of his telephone number with you, he has entered your number, and a code has been sent to you asking him to send the code to him. Once the corresponding code has been received, Anonymous (Hacker) installs WhatsApp with the code it has and all contacts, chats, channels, and groups are visible to him. In this way, the hacker, by sending a message to your contacts, and even making a two-way chat with your audience, will ask for help and fraud.
