Scam text message:
#PAY_PAL: You've sent $1499.99 AUD to Intel's services co. ltd. on 2021/07/11 TXN-ID#140DB341TzMd, If any Dispute Give us a call: 1800 953 927 Thank You.!!
Sent me a message saying I'd spent $1500 on PayPal, which I hadn't. And to call a 1800 number to dispute. Upon checking all my accounts and Paypal acct, no such amount was missing, I called the number to see what they had to say (suspecting a scam) but it was disconnected. There was also a link in the message to lookup who the (fake) payment had gone to. I did not try the link, as concerned it might hold a virus, as otherwise the scam seems pointless.
