G2A.com - Unauthorised Paypal transaction

5
Found 5th Sep 2015
Just been checking my emails - I noticed an odd one, a PayPal transaction for £22.91 from a company called G2A.com - apparently for a $25 Amazon.com gift voucher.

Never heard of this firm before - but they seem to be a CD Keys "like" website... have raised a claim with Paypal, but as it was a direct from my debit card "passthrough" transaction, should i also raise it with my bank? First Direct?

Any one hvae any experience with this firm in general? I am bemused as to how this happened.

I bought a game from them before. Could it have been someone using your paypal details or card details to buy it?

I suspect that it was someone authorising on my behalf, its odd though, i use a complex password app to manage my passwords (LastPass) and have a differnet complex password for each site.

Never bought from these folk - but i hvae bought from CDKeys.com - although not via Paypal...

Just wondering if it was a phishing email maybe....$25 is about £16.50 so £22.91 odd amount for $25 Amazon voucher.

It's definitely in my PayPal account. I assumed it was phishing too.
