Not PayPal very suspect This is a fraud number aiming to steal your personal identification in order to gain access to your paypal account, a process known as "Smishing" when done via SMS.
Paypal will NEVER contact you on any number aside from the ones listed on their official site ( https://www.paypal.com/au/ )
Those numbers are;
1800 073 263 (toll free)
(02) 8223 9500
Anyone claiming otherwise is not affiliated in any manner with PayPal, Inc.
For more information about what you can do to protect yourself from future SMS 'Smishing', please visit the Australian consumer information website at; https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0350-text-message-spam
