Just had a call from “paypal” – I hung up when they asked for my email address lol. Two minutes later I got a message through my PayPal account – legit! haha. oops. Called them back on the PayPal phone number and spoke to the same guy.

Just something about offering integration assistance and priority account support because we do a lot of sales.

Anyone else had a (legit or scam) phone call from PayPal?

Havn’t ever had a call like that, but I would’ve thought it was a scam too – I reckon if they have your phone number, they also have your email address :P

I’ve had a legit phone call from PayPal support about a query I made regarding transfer amounts.

I call Paypal (in Singapore) when my Account get limitation and asking how to get my money back, and what is the problem. And, no solution for this problem.

I really don’t like this. I must wait for 180 days to get my money back, but I didnt know how to get my money, of course they didnt transfer to my bank account.

Damn :
