Someone who is threatening my friend say that they hacked a guy's phone and know what they are talking about. She says that she gets all his messages and can read what he sends to several contacts on his phone. Is it possible to hack whatsapp and get duplicates of his messages?

Yes, it is possible, but extremely difficult. It is not an easy task.
If at some point she had access to his phone then actually it is quite easy and simple, but otherwise no.

    Yes, quite possible but only if the hacker gets a chance to get the phone for some time. This way he can sync the WhatsApp account on his PC or laptop and then bingo, he keeps getting all the messages in parallel.

    It's possible but you would have to have good skills. They are most likely trying to put a scare into the person. If they have hacked the phone ask for proof.They may have compromised the login and have the password so they can access it remotely. This is the reason to use strong password and nothing that can be found in your social media profile like name, dates to name a few.

    Another thing you may want to consider. If the threats are a major cause for concern, take it to the police / local authorities. They may just put a scare into the person making the threats.
