I've had paypal call me several times (2-4 times a year)...usually asking me the same question (if I authorized such and such transaction.)

Yes Paypal will call from time to time so it is good to be on top of your account information at all times in case they ask questions.

Just curious, do the PayPal reps ask for you by full name? For the first time I'm going to be withdrawing from several accounts and a few of them all forward to the same cell phone and I have no way to see which number they are calling for.

They'll ask for the account holder, yes.

Add that "person" as the contact. When eBay calls, you'll see your stealth name show up on your phone.

I also add all my ⊗⊗⊗⊗ info to the contact as well.

Paypal called me a little while back, wondering why I had so many addresses on my account, said they're not mine, they are customers addresses I have sent stuff to.

They are all different names and numbers but I have 3 numbers that forward to one cell phone. I was just checking to see if they initiate conversation by asking for the account holder by name so I know if I'm supposed to be john James or tim... etc.

Just a word of side advice.... if someone ever calls me asking who they're speaking to... I very rudely tell them how rude they are and to ask what they want before the conversation goes any further.

they will call and ask by name.... also, if you're "driving" it is against their policy to continue the phone call. they will professionally end the call
