Text message from PayPal

I just received this text message supposedly from paypal after I made a transaction, It's the first time this has happened. Is this a scam message?

 

it was from +61458725

 

The message said.......

 

"PayPal: Thanks for checking out with PayPal. Reply "Y" to confirm we have the right mobile number for you. Msg & data rates may apply."

 

Please let me know what you think

 

ciao

Re: Text message from PayPal

Hi @cathy007 and @LuckyJojo

 

Thank you @cathy007 for the update and I am sure it will help @LuckyJojo

 

If you receive a text in the future that you are unsure you can always forward it to 62226 and insert the word spoof in the beginning of the message. Our team will be able to review it for you. 

 

I hope this helps,

Re: Text message from PayPal

Hi Folks,

I phoned paypal and apparently this message is from them at this number. 

thanks for your help. Maybe PayPal should publish number they might dial from, when I looked this number up it was described as a scam or spam.
