I got locked out from my WhatsApp account after I was tricked into giving my verification code

Anonymous | 2019年4月19日

Scammer gained access of my friends WhatsApp account and sent me a text saying "I sent something to your number by accident, can you send me? It's urgent".

That code turns out to be my verification code. But I could not tell because it was in arabic(COULD be other languages too).

Almost immediately, I got locked out of my WhatsApp.

When I tried getting another verification, the interval between each gets longer and longer because the other party is also trying to get verification.
