After changing my regular number, I started receiving WhatsApp calls. But since last night (December 5), I have been receiving those calls again. I also tried to verify the number, but they were all spam numbers. I went to the police station and they advised me to change the numbers. It is quite confusing. I feel like someone I know is doing this. ”
