Not PayPal very suspect Paypal security verification.
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.

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. SCAM SPAM PayPal Verification Number! NOT A SCAM✋!!! PayPal service Have received three text messages stating that I have transferred funds within the past two days. I don't have a PayPal account, but I do know that when entering a phone number into the official system you are to verify it - therefore you can't enter a wrong number. This is a scam. I never knew that a phone could be hacked without having physical access with it,all he asked for were a few information on my partner and he showed me proof immediately he got into the phone. I immediately paid him and got everything
that my fiance had been hiding..he was having an affair with two other women which was sickening i must say. We had a long
talk on phone and he agreed to help me.
I will be nice enough to give u his details but remember to mention leslie reffered u!! Have fun finding out the
truth! contact: ch***********[email protected]. call or text! 18705130365.
I just called PAYPAL Australia - it clearly is a genuine SMS number. If you go into my Settings - Get Security Key - it will clearly show that number. I think PAYPAL AUSTRALIA themselves are a bit confused. I ordered a photo book online from Big W yesterday and need to pay via paypal. I don't have the paypal account so I click the button on the bottom of Big W linked web site to create a new paypal account in order to finish the transaction. I received email from paypal asking to reconfirm email and mobile number, a 6 -digit code was sent via sms to my mobile. One minute later I got a sms message from 0458 729 725 telling me to save this number on my phone and ask me to txt back "Bal" to this number to check account balance. It seems highly suspicious so I google this number and found out it's a scam number if you replied it and hacker can hack into your phone. So I delete the sms straight away. But I don't know how come once I create a paypal account, the hacker can know my mobile number and send me that message. Just doubt if Big W online photo ordering web site security is safe to use or not. legit PayPal number 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 received a text stating I needed to claim my paypal payment..https:/py.pl/(random numbers). Didnt seem like paypals site at all. Phoned the number and Optus states the number is disconnected. Scam written all over it
