Ahh ok I see. Was probably a high value purchase that's why they asked?
Before I respond I would want to see where PP states I gave permission for PP to ask me to confirm transaction-related details via text message, and have PP confirm the source ID of any such messages.
I've had it before and phoned them to verify.

Yeah


Ok that's reassuring because I've got all my credit card details on PayPal. I just changed my password incase as a backup
Yes it's genuine, I have had texts like this.
Paypal normally use your name so you know its from them.

No mention of my name. It had the correct amount for the purchase I made and even the name of the company
62226 is the number that sends me the two step verification codes.

I’ve also had 2 of these transaction messages from this number, it’s usually over £100 spend on when not fulfilled by Amazon. (Both refurbished electricals)

So after replying with 1 for yes I received another text this morning

PayPal: Sorry. Texting is no longer supported for sending and requesting money. Please use the PayPal app or your PayPal account on the website. Thanks.
