    Scam
    Australia
    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

    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.

    I just tried to register on this site and registration is closed. I really am not happy about being anonymous as it sounds like I won't be standing by this, which isn't true. Everyone on here who said this number is a scam - you all freaked me out for NO good reason. I contacted PayPal and they confirmed they use this number - this is their email to me:
    You have received an SMS to add our phone number 0458 729 725 since you recently confirmed your mobile number. I assure you that it is PayPal's number and it is being used for automated SMS notification only, not for calls. This is why you were unable to call the said number.

    Should you have further inquiries, do not hesitate to email us or you may also call directly at (02) 8223 9500/1-800-073-263, 06:00-22:00 Monday through Friday AEST/AEDT and 08:00-19:00 Saturday and Sunday AEST/AEDT.

    Thank you for using PayPal.

    Sincerely,
    Arvie

    Caller: Paypal

    It is paypal, i got a message saying if you have authorised this transaction then reply 1 otherwise reply 2. Didnt wanna respond so i called them up and they said it’s from them. Sometimes if you do something out of the usual they might send you a text like that (for example, you always purchase low prices items and suddenly you purchase an expensive items, or if you always pay well-known retailers and suddenly you send your money to a private seller)

    Caller: 0458 729 725

    Just received the same message three times at the same time with the same time stamp!

    Paypal Your security code is XXXXXX. Your code expires in 10 minutes. Please don't reply.

    And there was a different six digit number each time - the number appears to be a link which I'm not accessing. A definite scam.

    Caller: Verification codes in rapid succession

    This number definitely suspect. 3 Verification codes in rapid succession that no human could manually generate from Paypal through normal operation. Verified that my account is safe and Paypal said there is not suspect activity related to my account. Something is happening from this number weather it's a real number or a faked number forwarded by some mechanism don't know. Be careful.
