Thought it was a scam at first, asking me to log into my PayPal account for additional information. But there was no link, so I assumed it might be legit. Logged into my Palpal account on a different device and under notifications, there was a request for additional information. Everyone here is reporting it as a scam, but how can it be when there's no link for you to log in to? If there was a link, then of course, be suspicious. People are getting a little too paranoid.

Rang but never left message, I have just reverse searched it to see someone else has reported it as a PayPal scammer.

I logged into my PayPal account after receiving the sms from this number and confirmed that the sms (re an coming payment) was legitimate, but that's not to say that many here may have received an sms from this number that has been maliciously spoofed. Best not to respond and to check your account to determine the legitimacy of the sms.

This definitely phishing. The link is in the date field in the text. Don't open!

Received text from this number. Initially thought was a Paypal scam. Logged in on browser and phoned Paypal. Confirmed genuine and requested to update home address. Apparently account could be affected if information not updated.

Asking to confirm PayPal purchase. Reply Y, N immediately after payment.
Replied Y
There was a quick reply stating the payment is authorising.
(Seems) genuine but odd. Paypal has never done this before.

They almost got me.I went along with it until I realised the information I was about to give would grant access to my account. Well done, really. But do not think it's legitimate just because there isn't a link to click on. That isn't the only way to fall prey to scams.

Not Legit, you should not receive numbers from this scam phone number and think they are legit. Most people receiving them don’t have PayPal accounts so they are just hoping someone responds, derr.

Got a text advising a security code.

Logged into Paypal to update password and then got a text from their two step verification and it also came from this number.

I assume someone has tried to log into my account or scammers are spoofing the number, which would account for some being real and some being fake from the same number.

Definitely a scam they must have gotten in to my Paypal account and used that to try and get all my card details out of me..
They almost had me transfer 1000$ to my account so they could transfer it!
They somehow had commbank info too and sent me codes which I NEVER gave as the text from Netbank said DONT tell anyone this.. So mad they are the scum of the earth

Got a call from this number today. It's an obvious scam. Wanna know how I know? Because texts sent to your number from PayPay have the name 'PayPal' as the sender, not some shady unrecognised number. That's how things work when you know enough about security to set up 2FA on your account.

People saying "HURR DURR IT'S LEGIT", you're gonna end up being the folks who give all their superannuation away to a 419 scam. Get smarter and learn how things work.

Easy to check if legit, just log onto your paypal acct. Instructed that additional details were required on my acct. Logged onto paypal and there was indeed a notification to update some of my details. I believe this is a legit paypal notification, however I wouldn't ever supply details via txt.

Definitely a scamming number. The wording of the text message I received was not worded in a professional way and would definitely not be from PayPal.
