It is a genuine PayPal accounts receivable number - this is the second time in a couple of years I have spoken to them
This time I had set up a pre-order to pay using PayPal, and on the day it was due there was no money in my bank account which immediately threw my PayPal account into a negative balance.
Spoke to a nice American lady and let her know that I would settle the balance on the date I next got paid, and I received no further calls. Paid off the negative balance on the date I told them I would.

Has called me 4 times this morning and also several times yesterday. They never leave a voicemail, and any serious operator would if it were actually urgent given the number of times they call. I suspect this is a scam and have blocked the number.

People saying that this isn't a scam well it is, i called PayPal and gave them the number, they then informed me that they have no record of this number and they are trying to get you're personal information, please be careful with who you give you're personal details out to.

Hey hey,

This is not a scam.
Simple explanation as to why this number seems like a scam number, their office is in America. To be able to call their Australian customers they need to have their calls diverted to an Australian number. If you call the 1800 number on Paypal, you will be diverted to this number. The online customer service clearly have no idea this was happening lmao. Jim was the guy that answered, he explained everything and gave me information only Paypal would be able to access after I give them my email and phone number (what are they meant to do with that anyways if they were scammers). Once I gave that he was able to tell the exact amount I was over due in Paypal, so 100% it is Paypal, just calling through a diverted number due to them being American based. PS - Jim was wonderful and explained everything super well

Caller: Claims to be PayPal

I contacted PayPal via my online portal and they said they have no record of trying to reach me by phone. I was called on this number 8 times in the last few days with no message left. PayPal told me that if they did contact me, it would be via a US number. When I called back this number, the person picked up straight away which I also found strange. However, when PayPal actually did call me, I could not use their number to call them back. Furthermore, this Australian number asked for my identification which I did not give. I do not trust that this is a genuine call from PayPal.

Spoke to them as I had overdue balances.
Gave name and phone number. She wanted email but I declined. She kept telling me she couldn't help me without it ..while repeated five times I didn't need any help, I just answered out of courtesy and would pay my acc the regular way. Wouldn't let me off the line. I had to hang up on her. Sydney number....very learned American accent.

Missed a call from this number today - called back, and they said they were Paypal. I refused to gove them any details, and asked why they called me. She wouldn't say why, so I hung up. Then I called Paypal and was told that they do not contact customers this way, it's either a notification on the app, or an email.
This number is absolutely NOT from Paypal. I have blocked it.

Missed the call and called back according to the voice message it is PayPal, but sounds 10/10 like a scam since PayPal would normally email me or alert me in my account if I have any issues such as outstanding amounts owing

Claimed to be PayPal. They asked for the correct name on my PayPal acc, and I said I didn't want to give my details as I'm unsure if this is a scam. They got pissy with me.
As I do have a negative balance that is currently pending (apparently it takes about 8 days to transfer money into your own PayPal) I asked if it was about the exact negative balance and was told they couldn't give that info to anyone without confirming who they are.
So it sounds sus but also could be legit?
They called multiple times without leaving a message and my phones inbuilt scam detector was sus on the number too. I have no idea.
Im dealing with it via my PayPal app.

I too have a negative PayPal balance as a result of someone making fraudulent purchases so the payments are automatically refunded and I was expecting to be contacted by them so I am not surprised I have had 3 missed calls from this number. The reason they don't leave a message is they are only allowed to contact you to a maximum of 3 calls per week or 10 per month ... but if no message is left, it is not considered having made contact. So they are permitted to continue calling until the call is answered.

Interesting since when I contacted PayPal they said they don't contact customers by phone and I don't actually have a PayPal account......

This is PayPal calling re negative balance on your account. They probably need to re-think their strategy though, I've had 3 calls in the space of 3 hours with no message left etc. Spoke with them last week and already advised I will fix up the balance and am aware of it. 3 calls inthe space of 3 hours during work hours when most people can't answer their phone is excessive and harassing and is completely unnecessary. Just send an email to the Paypal email address. Especially for an amount as small as the amount I'm in debit for and when I had a refund that they could have used to clear it but still sent back to my account. Bad business practice spamming people with calls.
