100% FRAUD!!! Called paypal at their 888 number, they NEVER called me and NEVER had this 800-410-1576 number, was also told that the 888-221-1161. is the number for both Canada and USA! Non of their department has the 800 number nor a record of calling me. I then put them on hold and called the 800-410-1576 in conference call, the Paypal person was very nice and didn't speak so the 800 fraudulent person was asking me my persona questions, I told them that I know they are fraud and won't give them anything, that I have Paypal on the phone as well. She hanged up the phone immediately!!! Now Paypal's aware of them. Not a scam, not phishing and not fraud. It's Paypal's 3rd part collection when your account has a negative balance. Nothing to fear. I called paypal, and they told that this is the number of an internal department that takes care of debt collection. I fail to see how having an accent makes you a scammer, I'm pretty sure that being 100% american is not a requirement to work at paypal. Don't take my word for it, call paypal yourself, you can find their official number when you log in your account. Every call is recorded, so they will tell you if someone from paypal really tried to contact you. Dead air. Clearly a scam if the auto-dialer works faster than the people in the boiler room. I don't know if the people calling from that phone number is a scam but after reading these posted, I logged into my Paypal account and in fact, I owed money because I didn't have a credit card linked to the account Just had one of those 1-800-410-1576 calls myself. Thanks for the info here. I'd not been able to catch the phone so thought I'd look it up before doing so. It's a scam, call paypal and report them they keep calling
I never have or intend to use paypal
They are legit, It really is regarding our PayPal accounts, they work for the collections department. Gave them my Credit Card number already a while ago, nothing ever happened and my account did come back down to zero. They are not messing around. Watch out for this fraud. Three different people from this number called me. They had poor English and gave fake extension numbers. They pretended to be from PayPal and provided a reference #. When I called back there was a hold message in French and the choice to switch to English. The clerk I finally talked to wanted me to give her the email I use for PayPal. I refused and she quickly became unprofessional. After that I checked the PayPal site and saw that the actual customer service number for PayPal is 1-877-569-1116. Well i just got a phonecall today from this number, Andrew left a message, it really sounded fishy (even though his voice was really sexy) but paypal never calls right? so i checked on google and this is the first page i see. Ughh I dont know what to do, Francesca is maybe right but then again, what if they are fraud ? :s Plus today is Remembrance Day, like who the [***] calls people to collect money on that day, because i know my account is in negative but i dont think im going to give my credit card number to anyone on the phone!!! Same thing - got a vm claiming to be paypal asking for some guy named justin.. Saying its urgent i call back...... Must be a scam. Got the call, let it go to VM. Said they were looking for someone who is NOT me. My VM says my first name, but they ask for a "Justin Marie" Uhh yep, that's not me. I'm very deaf so I had to have my mother listen to it. Not impressed if this is real. E-mailed paypal about it. They call every day and no one is ever in the other end
