Fraud attempt or Whatsapp feature?

I received a WhatsApp message with the location code from the other phone. It looks like a regular "pin location" message. Where the blue dot on Apple Maps shows my location and the location of the other phone is shown by the red pin icon.

The question is, would it be possible to receive the exact same location message with the exact same graphics if the owner of the other phone was not in the location indicated by the red pin when the message was sent?

The owner of the phone from which the location was sent claims that he sent the location of the pin, which will be several thousand kilometers from this place.

I will be grateful for your response,
