PayPal scam text

Just received this bogus text allegedly from PayPal. When I opened the link a mock up of their official page asked for my email address and password.
Don’t fall for it!
• If the padlock isn’t at the top it isn’t a secure site.
• If the text doesn’t address you by name, ignore it.

We received it a few days ago via email with a link to re set the pass word.

I got a similar text too, a couple of days ago. It told me my paypal had been temporarily blocked due to too msny attempted failed log ins. It had a 'helpful' link to get back in.
I don't even have paypal!

I've had plenty by email but never a text.
