Paypal account hacked and money stolen from bank account.

Mr DSPMr DSP

Hi there

So i wake up this morning and check my online banking to find that over £1200.00 has been taken from my bank account after my paypal account got hacked.

Paypal are saying that the payments have been stopped and will be refunded in 7-9 days.

Am not sure how this can f*ing happen and paypal are being completely useless.

If someone can help me or if this has happened to you please can you get in touch or post to the wall.

Thanks a ot

    the ONLY way your account would be hacked if you GAVE your password out ....

    paypal has secure servers so your password CANNOT be intercepted....

    you have either clicked a fake email link from "paypal" or actually told someone your password...

    log into paypal (if you can) and make your password secure.... IF you can't login then email or ring paypal and they will go through the methods of setting a new password and giving you access back...

    and a handy tip ...... if you recieve any email from paypal ......... never ever click a link ... always type [url]www.paypal.co.uk[/url] in your browser window ...... this goes the same for bank emails and ebay...

    be safe with your passwords as its your money being used

    No, it was cash withdrawals from paypal direct!

    didnt you say they were refunding your money in 7-9 days, that to me says they are doing something.....


    Yes they did. Still doesnt help me and theres no guarantee or confirmation this going to happen. Im still left with zero cash until this happens.

    paypal are always good with this ..... they have to do checks and then recover the money so 7 days wait for the op's money is fair ......

    cash withdrawals :? they need a bank account set up, and you would have recieved an email saying a new bank account had been set up :thinking:

    they need to verify the bank account too

    unless it was done through your bank account ??

    Thanks for the message mate. I am unsure as to how this has happened as i am very careful with my password data. The bank were very helpful and just reversed all the debits immediately.

    I am still in shock...

    thats life im afraid, choose a better password with numbers, letters, lowercas and higher case

    the banks would take just as long to get it sorted as it has to be investigated, they arent just gonna give you the money back in case you are the scammer.....

    nothing else can be done im afriad

    paypal use direct debit to banks so if you ask niceley at your bank they can perform a snachback and your funds will be back the same day
