Scam

So i was selling my old phone on Facebook Marketplace and this lady wanted me to ship it and she will send me the money through paypal. She asked me a code that come to my phone, text was your security code is xxx don't give this to anyone She said she can't transfer money, error and asked for the code a couple more times and then blocked me. Was she trying to scam me or what?

This happened to me, with the code they can change your password and access your account. I blocked my bank card and managed to change password eventually, am sure they can access a lot of info.

Hi @Ingaa, I understand your concern in regards to the payment. I would suggest you to please don't provide any code when asked for the security purpose. If they want to send you a payment you can ask the to send it to the registered email address or the phone number.  Please check this article
