Scammers want you to verify your identity on Facebook Marketplace, but it’s just a way for you to become part of their multi-step scheme.
Scammers are now trying to make you prove who you are in a multi-step scam. They’ll send you a text message with a six-digit Google Voice verification code and ask you for that code. If you give it to them, they’ll try to use it to create a Google Voice number linked to your phone number.
This happened to me, almost I didn’t send the code back, and being suspicious I Googled about it and found this URL https://tinyurl.com/45auzuws
