Phone scam data » Paypal


The Paypal call scam is typically a call from an automated machine asking you to press a number to speak to one of their agents.

The agent is a scammer that will inform you that there has been an unusual activity of some sort on your account and it’s at risk of being shut down. This includes illegal usage, an attempt to send a large amount of money or making a purchase. Anyone hearing this who has a Paypal account is likely to panic and stop this from taking place, this is exactly what the scammer wants.

After confirming it wasn’t you who made the payments, the scammer will ask you to verify it’s your account by giving them personal details. If they gain access to your Paypal account they will take everything in it. If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from Paypal, you should hang up and give them a call directly.
