nah they enter your number somewhere, to confirm they have access to your number, you get the text, when you give them that six digit code now they have something of yours, or control of your number, or something.

They get access to your google voice which they can then use to scam other people.

nailed it.

They send you a text message with a Google Voice verification code and ask you for that code. If you give them the verification code, they’ll try to use it to create a Google Voice number linked to your phone number. (Google Voice gives you a phone number that you can use to make calls or send text messages from a web browser or a mobile device.)

Is there a zelle scam now? Got some guy sounding off and pushing for zelle to purchase an item site unseen. Asking for a confirmation number.
Zelle offers no protection for the buyer. Once the money changes hands, you can't do anything to reverse it. The only time I would use Zelle is if it's someone I actually know or an in person transaction.
