This number is from Paypals Collections department. You may get a call from this number if you have a negative paypal balance and/or owe them money.
Source: was referred to call this number from a Paypal CSR agent.
I called paypals actual number and they verified that this is a spam/phishing number They constantly ring but don't leave a message. My actual PayPal account is not in negative but somebody from the UK tried to make 3 PayPal purchases on my account which didn't go thru as I took the money out of my bank account and when I lodged a complaint with PayPal they said seeing as payment wasn't completed there is no need for them to do anything even tho it was their stuff that got hacked. Now I won't use PayPal either because the last attempt was £500. And that's a lot of AUD. And if I didn't empty bank they would have it and I don't believe PayPal would help. I have received 3 EMAILS telling me my PayPal is also locked and to click this link to input details but there is no way I'm doing that. But like I said my actual PayPal says I'm $1 in credit so it's all a scam 7 calls in under 20mins, been going on every day for a week now. I don't answer unknowns or privates and they ring on this number and immediately follow with a private number. If they're legit they can leave a msg or bug off. They also ring from 011112000. Blocked what I can. yes it is Pay Pal if you have a negative balance which is what most people have OR if you owe them money which only occurs if they make an error Caller: paypal U.S.A.
It is the Pay pal collection agency
Caller: Fake pay pal
Just got a missed call from this number, it seems that a payment didn’t process on my PayPal coincidentally. Maybe it is real?
Didn’t leave a message for me though.
1800 162 432 is PayPal
01800 162 432 is a phishing scam
Caller: Scam caller
I got the same call and answers it, no answer. Then try and call them back and the number isn’t connected.
It’s a massive scam ignore it.
Called me twice pretending to be PayPal demanding for my credit card details. Called back and couldn’t connect to the number. Be aware of the scam.
Can confirm that this is a real number. I called paypal directly and confirmed it with them. This is the number for PayPal's collections department. caller id said 1800 162 432 but its the same number. Pay Pal. Either someone used my number to create a fake paypal or its a scam.. either way, not my problemo! Received a call claiming they were Paypal. Spam/phishing number In answer to Jess I have also been getting calls from this number saying they are Pay Pal and asking for someone named Tomika Thurgood. I am not going to respond as I think if you anwer they bill you etc . I'm sure its a scam . I am going to report back to Optus once they have left a few more messages as I previously called them and they said I needed precise info which I hadn't recorded at the time Just wondering if this number is really PayPal ?
