Hi. I only registered this number yesterday and it was said that this number is available to be chosen. I choose this number but when I installed whatssap, there are numerous groups in my whatssap contact list and people who I didnt recognized started to message me. Also, my whatssap had send me verification code too many times which I didnt even ask.

Nowadays it is normal for mobile numbers (especially prepaid) to be a recycled number due to the great number of subscribers.

You cannot, but you can choose to notify them that you are a new owner of the number.

Fyi, I already left the group but other people keep messaging. I've blocked few people since yesterday. Sometimes my whatssap keep popping out the security code when you first registered. That is such a hassle dont you think?
