Hi. I have made an Ebay purchase today. I shortly afterwards received a mobile phone txt from Paypal saying the purchase activity was marked suspicious and asking me to respond "1" to confirm it was my purchase or "2" to mark it as unauthorised. I responded with "1" but then received a follow up txt saying the payment was not completed as the phone number or email was not valid. I'm not sure how to proceed now since neither my phone number nor my email have changed. Indeed I received my usual Paypal email confirming the purchase and the txt I received was sent to my usual and only mobile phone number. Checking my purchase history on Paypal the amount shows up properly as paid to the seller. Do I need to do anything or is everything proceeding as usual despite the follow up txt? Thank you for any assistance.

I have not received a text but several e-mails over the last week or so.  I assume that as I have not got any messages in my notifications that these e-mails are some sort of phishing or something.
