Scam Description

I posted two items for sale on Facebook marketplace. Immediately I had several parties expressing interest. Their names, probably fake, were Candy Lee, Rahul Siroha, Momtazul Hoque Naym, Jessica Latha, Lisa James, Nancy Back, & Jenny Linda. They asked to send me a six digit verification to ensure I was legit. I gave out my phone number only a couple times and only once, to Momtazul, did I send back the verification number before I started to realize that something wasn’t adding up. And so I told all of them to back off and I stopped communicating. I then googled and found that the scam is an old one. I deleted all messages and blocked everyone.
Still, I fear that my phone number (which is quite old and probably long-ago compromised anyway) is now in the hands of these *******. Thoughts?
