Don't give them any personal details . got a text from this number - in fact 2 texts in the last 5 mins giving me a code to enter into paypal then I get a call from Omaha in the US - I did not answer - it went to voice mail and the voicemail was asking for the code i had just received.... smells bad to me Received a blank sms from them when I turned my phone back on. Did not prompt this from paypal??!! VERY SUSS received a message from the same entitynumber 729725 replied stop. After responding someone phantom personhijacked my phone then started going through all of my recordsdialing calls getting on the internet on their ownI had no virtual control over my phone after that I had to get a new phone its a scam. paypal authorization not spam.

not spam PayPal Legitimate Paypal number used to send messages to customers. For me, this was a confirmation txt from PayPal notifying me that a friend has made a payment into my account. I am not a pay pal customer so I know for sure that this is A SCAMMER - you must be in another world of no spam! Block the number. Do not reply. Matt NO its NOT! Looks like the guy that is using that number is adding notes here saying its is paypal so he can hack your phone
