"Why did you Block me on Whatsapp" Fake Messages Being Sent by Scammers

This is because the messages are being sent by scammers to trick the recipients into responding and subsequently asking them to visit malicious websites that will infect their computers or mobile devices with malware. Or, to visit phishing websites that steal personal information, online account credentials, and financial information.

      Just be careful going forward, the scammer will attempt to phish information from you, but just ignore them. Other scammers may also contact you and attempt to trick you into sending them money for lottery or some other fake service or event.
