**Paypal NEEDS TO PAY ATTENTION & HELP FIX this SCAM!!!** I contacted Paypal while in the car from Google. The guy asked for my email then said for security he had to send me a verification code to speak with me, he texted me a number, I gave it to him, then he went on to say my account had a security problem it was through Google and I needed to purchase a $50 Google Play card give him the numbers off it and I would be reimbursed and to prove this he gave me the name of my bank that was listed on my Paypal account. When I questioned him he got short and tried to explain again, I stopped him and said I wanted to speak with Google first. He offered to call me back to which I said No. It was ALL A SCAM!! I found the email where he changed my password so it happened for sure. I changed my password to Paypal, contacted my bank to verify nothing had been touched and went on Paypal to report it (ended up in chat) the guy at Paypal blamed me for calling, told me to change my password and that Paypal has the best security & never been breached...Really? I have the phone number where I spoke to the scammer, a screenshot of the Google search for customer service and nobody cares! This was WAY TOO easy, the password change policy MUST be corrected right NOW!! Somebody is using PAYPAL's listing in Google and they must FIX it before people get hurt. In the meantime, I would like to know why this scammer didn't just send himself my money while he had my account open?? And went with the Google Play card scam instead? So he's less
