GetHuman1581933's next move: go to the WhatsApp help center.
WhatsApp doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman1581933 will want to follow the link below to head to their help center. We will check on GetHuman1581933 later to make sure it's all set or try to help escalate.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman1581933 may need:
Account Number, Email on Account, Phone Number, Name of Account Holder, Country, WhatsApp Version Type, and Device Used
Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. This company has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account.
The issue in GetHuman1581933's own words
Someone has gained access to my account and is messaging people asking for them to send money to a certain bank account. **I erased my phone and wiped the content and I can see from my son's phone that I am still online on Whatsapp but it is obviously not me. My son has lost £*** so far and I am scared that people will do the same again. **It is even managing to kick out my other family members and friends out of group chats when they try to warn other people.
