    It's PayPal. Those getting unsolicited texts: someone is mistyping their phone number and typing yours instead. Like getting a wrong number call. Don't stress.

    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

    Thought was spam. Emailed paypal who confirmed legit. Reason I thought dodgy was because I had not confirmed my phone number on my paypal acc so my funds were not automatically claimed, I had to do it manually. the sender haf sent it using my phone number (off a gumtrer ad). All confirmed, fixed and money in my account. 100% legit. Paypal will confirn if u contact them

    Same message as a previous:- ""PayPal: Have you recently attempted to make a payment for $****.** AUD? Reply "1" if yes and reattempt your payment, reply "2" if no, and the payment will remain declined. Msg and Data rates apply.

    It was the exact amount for an item I had only just won on Ebay!!!
    The site I won it from may well be legit but with company names including Blossom-Beauty (not the the beauty products) and "bananaphonez", this also sounds a bit suspect? I'm just going to wait until I get some messages direct from Ebay.

    First time I have ever received a text from "PayPal".
    ""PayPal: Have you recently attempted to make a payment for $****.** AUD? Reply "1" if yes and reattempt your payment, reply "2" if no, and the payment will remain declined. Msg and Data rates apply.""

    Very creepy they knew the amount. I ignored the message and checked my payment had gone through on PayPal, which it had. I will be keeping a close eye on my account from now

    For me, this was a confirmation txt from PayPal notifying me that a friend has made a payment into my account.
