User Complaints for 877-854-8431
This number calls me at least a couple of times a week. Sometimes, a couple of times a day, every day. I've blocked the number, so now I just keep receiving voice mails. They are always exactly 2 minutes and 19 seconds long. The content is as follows: "If you are this person [nothing], please press 1" then nothing for the next two minutes or so, then it goes on to Paypal. For example, yesterday it recorded ringing, then "Hello, this is Shelley from Paypal. [silence] Hello? Hello?" [hang-up] It is so weird! How does a voice-mail go on to make a call? (maybe I am missing something here).
Caller name: fake PayPal
This number calls me 2-3 times a day and never leaves a voicemail. I called them back (no paypals hold or stupid prompts, which already was a sign) and they said they were with PayPal collection department and requested my number, phone, and email. I gave them my number, but before giving my other information I asked them why am I getting contacted. They claimed they couldn't tell me unless I gave them my other information. I then told them I would give the "official PayPal" a call and ask them myself because I know my account is in good standing and I've never received an email about any issues with my account (because that's what they usually do). Official PayPal then told me that they did not have any outbound calls for my account this week and that number is not listed in their collection department or anywhere else for that matter. I called the number back and the guy now told me he was customer service and not collection department (super fishy). I told him to remove my number. He said he couldn't until he got my name and email as well. I then explained it was illegal to call somebody that requests a do-not-call and he continued with a "sorry, I can't help you until I have your information". DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR INFORMATION TO THESE SCAMMERS!!!
Caller name: Paypal
Twice someone has called me from this number, and when I did answer, they simply hung up on me. So, I called the number, and the guy acted like he was fromPaypal, and said my account was overdrawn for $25.00, which it HAD been. But, having read previously that no one from Paypal (or Ebay) will ever call requesting payment, I quickly told the guy, "You know what? This is a scam, and I'm going to report you!"
Caller name: PayPal
This is a legitimate PayPal collections department phone number, not a scam. If they are calling you it is because your account is overdrawn or because you need to update your backup method of payment. If you have any doubts about providing information to the caller log in to your PayPal account and check to see if your information is up to date or call the customer service number to speak to a representative directly.
This number is NOT PAYPAL. It is a scam. They call me 2-4 times every week. I've called PayPal and this is not one of their numbers. DO NOT TELL THESE IDIOTS ANYTHING. Instead, tell them you know they are a scam and they will leave you alone.
