I never wanted any verification code at all, so why this verification in the first place?
This had happened to me in March on this device but with my other sim card, but the text was not sent as I didnt have enough credit on my phone. 

This happened on this Monday too with the Sim card for which the question was posted again it failed to send due to above reason so I dint bother 

But today it was successfully sent to the unknown number, what's happening I was even charged the SMS cost. Pls help

The Help center article - Verify your Android phone's number describes this action. "For your security, we'll re-verify from time to time to make sure that your phone's number is still yours. When we re-verify, you might get text messages from Google or see outgoing texts to Google. The message could say something like, "Google is verifying the phone number of this device."" Under the section "Change how your phone's number gets verified" now lists how to address this issue. Please post here if performing the steps mentioned therein doesn't resolve your issue.

"When we re-verify, you might get text messages from Google or see outgoing texts to Google."

That's the problem, the outgoing texts are not going to Google, it's going to some random Indian numbers starting +91xxxxxxxxxx. Google numbers never look like that, also that number is listed as spam/fraud at truecaller. That's what getting me worried, my email phone number being controlled by some potential scamster. Please help!
