    i have been robbed!

    I just logged into my paypal account to pay for something i bought off ebay. It said payment will be taken from bank account XXXX so i didnt complete the payment as i knew i had £46 left in my paypal account and wondered why they wasnt taking the payment from my paypal balance. i went to my account overview and it says i transferred $80.32 into my Centennial Bank Current (United States) account. obviously i dont have a us account so i checked my bank accounts on my my profile and there it was. a american bank account had been added to my paypal! so basically the £46 i had in my paypal plus £4 from my other bank account has been transferred to this us account. i have reported it to paypal but not had a reply yet how could this have happened? i havent given my password to anyone and i use a totally different email especially for my paypal. I'm gutted!

    Contact them?

    hope paypal sort it for you,

    Aww hun, I feel for u...don't worry tho..I'm pretty sure u'll be covered by Paypal :friends:

    It is Paypal responsibility, they usually have a contact number (local), I would call them as this is a serious breach of privacy.

    Sort your pc out.

    Seems you have spyware.

    Contact Paypal and tell them you have been hacked.

    They may or may not refund you.

    Change your passwords on a secure pc.

    well if you change your password they'd only have your email?

    good passwords are phrases or sentences instead of a word my secure pass has letters symbols numbers and capppitals

    First thing to do is log in and change your password before the hackers do,Then contact paypal and tell them what happened,

    Paypal are rubbish when it comes to contacting them plus they only have international numbers, but you can call the Dublin one.. I transferred money to my bank account on the 12th and i still done have it it's been 10 days I’ve rang them 4 times each time they have told me a different story... -.- Very frustrating considering I need the money...! Has anyone else had a similar problem?

    Any way good luck OP and I hope you get everything sorted Best wishes

    I moved into a small flat and have sold all sorts of crap over the last 6 months to make room,
    I usually take about £100 out of PayPal every month, and it usually takes no more than 4 or 5 days to appear in my bank account.
