Hi,

I've received a sms message from PayPal but I'm not sure if it's from paypal or not. It says that my Paypal has been locked as a result of too many unsuccesfulsign in attempts. click the link to restore access - bit something /Paypal-Verify

Ilike i said I';m not sure about this one, as I haven't tried to log in to my Paypal at laa las week.

 

Thanks

Sounds like an sms phishing attempt. If you clicked any links in the text message and entered your PayPal password, you'll want to change it. 

 

Here is PayPal link with details on phishing.

Hi,

Checking if an email or SMS is legitimate is rather simple.

All Texts from PayPal typically come from a small number e.g. 6226, anything from a mobile number is not legit. sometimes the number wont be shown and will just display as "PAYPAL". this is also not legit

 

If you are still unsure you can always call PayPal and we can check outgoing SMS and emails to your email address to confirm anything you are not sure about.
