Check your PayPal account on a secure internet connection and see if there are actual alerts and notifications of an unauthorized transaction or a hold on your account. If not, it's spam. These are meant to cause mischief and whatnot.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂

There seems to be no transacion, but the thing that confused me is that the SMS leads me to a secured website “https”. What if I gave my details?

Hi @Mert301,

 

You may change the password and the security questions of your PayPal account. You may run a full scan for viruses on any device you currently use as well.

 

I hope this helps.
