    Yes, I believe it's possible. Report the matter to the police, since to do that is illegal.

    Possible? Yes. Likely? That depends. If this is someone you know, have you given them access to your phone without watching what they were doing? Do you visit sketchy websites (I.e. Porn sites, hacking/pirating sites, the dark web) or install apps from sites other than Google, Amazon, or other trusted app stores?

    If the answer to both questions are no, then it's unlikely you have been hacked. Android is a very secure system for the most part. If the answer to those questions is yes, then it's more likely you could've been hacked. Has this person given reason for you believe they did hack you? I.e. Given an accurate description of something you were doing at the time or sent you a photo they claimed to take. If not, I wouldn't be so quick to call the police. I'd definitely consider it, but they could also be easily bluffing.

    ^ I think it's likely that they are bluffing, but having to explain such childish and menacing behaviour to the police may teach them a much-needed lesson.

    Tell them to prove it, they are probably trying to scam you.

    Or at least trying to appear smarter than they actually are.
