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.

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 an PayPal IMPOSTER ! 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 This is spam, those who argue that is not, are spammers itself. 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 payment notification paypal notification paypal payment notification It is a legit paypal number. Strangely enough they use it to validate that it is actually Paypal. Here is a response from Paypal:
.....the phone number 0458 729 725 or 0458-PAYPAL is the number that we are using to send PayPal notification on to your phone.
We ask you to save it so you can easily recognized that the text message is from us.
