Well, it's the right exchange and area code, so it could be legit.

 

If they read the details TO you, then I would say that it's legit.

I too got a call from 402-935-7733 but on a Sunday? And they hung up when I answered?? Are you sure this is legit??? (A Google search of this number, as suggested, shows some people claiming fraud and identity theft????)

what if the phone number they called from is 800-830-8574 and it's an automated message that wants you to call them back??

There's this great tool called GOOGLE.

 

You input the number in the search box and press "Search" and it tells you where the number came from.

 

In this case, it comes from either Paypal, or Wells Fargo, who is Paypal's bank.

 

Phone them back.
