Is reporting on WhatsApp useful?

What I am about to tell is in a personal capacity, since my experience in the report a WhatsApp group led me to the conclusion that reporting a WhatsApp group is completely useless and it can too be counterproductive. Since at the time I reported a personal group to WhatsApp that had been stolen from me using phishing techniques, the fact is that my friends and family went to denounce this group and at the end I received a notification from WhatsApp support in which they said they had suspended my account… The fact is that even today the group continues to exist and illegal practices are carried out within it and the one who suspended the account was me… the world upside down.
