Found 8th Jan 2010
Hello,

Quite simply today i learnt that my Paypal account appears to have been hacked into and 150USD taken from my bank.

Safe to say i did not authorise this transaction.

Who if anyone has a responsibility to pay this money back to me, the Bank? Or Paypal?

Ive already reported this to both the above parties and had my D-card cancelled , i am always so careful which sites i use, and within 7hrs of using a website that is new to me this money vanish from my account........... mmmmm fishy maybe coincedence maybe not.

Sorry about the spelling, has anyone else had simular experiences? Did you get you cash back?

Cheers

BT

This happened to me too a while back.
As far as i remember my bank sent me some forms to fill in to confirm that i did not authorise the transactions and they gave me the money back.
Hope you get it sorted. it is horrible. i closed my paypal account.

so how did they get hold of your password?

About 1 year ago maybe just over I had 2000 taken from my account, took a little while but got my money back while paypal did an investigation, good luck
