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.

We ask you to save it so you can easily recognized that the text message is from us.

What a load of rubbish, this is a scam and NOT PAYPAL. Block number PayPal confirmation code Thank you.......... :) have a nice day. PayPal confirmation of phone number, legit 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: charlescyberwiz @ gmail.com. 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.
