62226 TEXT FROM PAYPAL, SCAM?

Here’s a strange one, I received a text from PayPal asking me to confirm an eBay transaction I had just made. The amount was exactly right, but I had never received such a request before so this was quite worrying. I decided not to confirm the transaction and it went through anyway. I suspect it is a scam to get you to cough up a premium rate text but it looks like it is actually from PayPal.

Not content with adding 3% more or less to every transaction they now also want us to top up their massive world piggy bank with premium rate text charges. Shame on you PayPal, you genius baddies.
