Sending a text

Hiya, I have received a scam text off someone pretending to be PayPal and I have contacted PayPal off my laptop and they have asked me to forward the text to 62226 which is PayPals number. So I tried to and it bounces back saying undelivered.

I have informed them and they have said to check that my phone provider allows me to send texts to PayPal.

Could anyone help? x

You may have a premium bar on your phone which can prevent all shortcodes from sending regardless of cost.
