I'm sorry to hear that you've encountered a fraudulent number. The portion of the number that you've posted here is incorrect. Please click Help & Contact at the bottom of any PayPal page, then click Contact Customer Service, then Call us. You can choose to call as a guest or log in and get the passcode. If you check the number posted there against what you've dialed, you will likely find that the number differs slightly.
I hope this helps!
Please also note that you can post a question to the community if the information you're seeking doesn't require account-specific information, or you can contact customer service by Facebook, Twitter, or or email, as well.
