Final SMS to inform you as of 15.10.2015 that you have not as yet updated your **** account. Please follow this link update your account http ://ow.ly/*****

Although these appear to be genuine as they use PAYPAL etc instead of a number - they are not genuine.

I am suspecting there may have been a data leak from paypal, I have a number of bank accounts but I only got this text from paypal and the bank that I pay paypal, I didn't get it for the other banks I have accounts with.

I get and identify email scams quite easily, I have a very large number of email addresses, when you get the same email addressed to numerous email addresses its obviously a scam.
