The issue in GetHuman-johnfmoi's own words
I received an SMS Text on my smart phone today (**Sept-****)*that appeared to be from Paypal advising me "your PayPal has been temporarily locked. You have **H to confirm the account information or your account will be closed http:**paypal.co.uk.ln**.pw*m**Unfortunately, I clicked on the link and found a proforma to complete including name address D.,O.B etc. but when asked to complete my telephone number, I became suspicious as the message had been sent to my telephone number. So I did a google search for Paypal scams and realized I might have already opened myself to attack simply by clicking the url link, but of course I didnot wish to add to the risk by sending the information I had already completed so I turned my phone off. Can any steps be taken to secure my account against abus, other than by closing it for a period? Would changing the login password be sufficient? HELP!
