This is actually PayPal. They called me because I owed them money due to a fee reversal.

If you get this call and don’t have a PayPal it’s just a wrong number and tell them so. They’re not trying to scam you. You’ll know if you owe PayPal a balance.

Caller: “ARL on behalf of PayPal”

Called my mobile today 18.7.23 - from (03) 9000 3421.
Answered call with “hello” and immediately it “rang” on the other end before it was answered.
Because I had already said hello I waited to see what the person would say. A lady then said hello and asked if she was talking to *insert my nickname here*.
I replied with “who’s calling”. She stated she was calling from “ARL on behalf of PayPal” and again asked if she was speaking with *nickname*
I stated that she had called me so she should know who she has called.
She assumed I was that person and proceed to say that the call was recorded etc and asked me to then confirm my full name.
I advised I wasn’t going to do that. She followed up with “well for verification purposes and for me to continue with the call I need you to verify your full name”. I repeated I wasn’t going to provide that information. She huffed and sounded frustrated before I hung up.

I have been receiving text messages from “ARL on behalf of PayPal for years now”. Nothing has ever escalated because while I have a PayPal account, I have never used it, it has no credit or debts owing, and most importantly it is not in the name that these people are trying to claim it is in (they keep referring to my nickname, not my legal name and also refer to my maiden name not my married name)

Be safe out there people and DO NOT provide your information to places that you are not 100% certain they are legitimate. Reputable businesses, including banks, will not call you and ask you to verify your personal information like this.

I answered and then it rang which was strange, there was a creepy sound like heavy breathing and then an Aussie chick came on and asked if I was X then said she was from PayPal, said the call would be recorded and then asked me to confirm my name, address and dob. I said why and she said it was something about PayPal and I told her I don't use PayPal and she huffed and said ok then and I hung up. Sad to think she could be doing this to loads of people.

Caller: Scammers

This Scammer tried to get my full name, date of birth, email address and claimed I owe PayPal the balance left on my bank account with the highest money amount. Very strong Indian Accent and after her speal when I told her she was a Scammer she was silent. She was rude when I refused to give any details. Then claimed I would end up being arrested if I didn’t buy gift cards in store to the value of all my money. She also tried to get my credit card details over the phone. Aldo tried to claim she needed four points if ID to keep me from loving everything. She wanted my email to send and I click on a link. Aldo at beginning of call gave no name just she was from “PayPal”.AVOID AVOID AVOID!

This is ARL, a debt recovery company acting on behalf of Pay Pal. It is a legitimate call IF you owe Pay Pal money.

Caller: Dont know

Keep calling saying to ring a number won’t say where they are from just to urgently call a number left. If they don’t advise who they are I don’t call back. it is ARL who is a debt collection on behalf of but under our laws as I have paid a set amount each week they are not allowed to refer to a debt collection agency. I refuse to call as I make payments regularly for the small outstanding amount. Under Australian Law if they don’t send the money back they have legally accepted your payment terms and can not send the debt to collection.

ARL on behalf of PayPal....definitely a scam. I hung up when she started asking for my personal information. My PayPal has a zero balance and I haven't used it for a couple of years.
