Exclamation Paypal....

Not sure if this is the right area to put this but my paypal account has been hacked into, not sure how by who or what, I have pp looking into it, my last two buys were off people from here...NOT again NOT saying they had anything to do with it, just a heads up for people to keep an eye on their paypal accounts, and plus paypal froze the payments and locked my paypal account, so I cant do anything with it, so I have to wait for a letter to confirm its me since I dont have a landline...just some FYI and a heads up...MODS Please move to where this should be if I posted in wrong area not sure where to put it!!! Thanks

oh and AGAIN NOT blaming FRF or anyone I got goods from...just a friendly heads up!

Good to know, someone tried to hack mine about a year ago. I change the password every 6 weeks now. Never to the same thing.

I will keep everyone posted, I did change my PW and secret questions, and called my bank and placed a hold my the bank account, as I only use it for paypal so it wont bother my day to day purchases and paypal stopped it cause it was direct transfer from my bank and they put a hold on the funds, so I think it was accounts that they were watching that tried to do this.

Hopefully you get it sorted out though paypal is pretty good with these things at times though. On a side note everything working good for you did you get it installed yet?

Been busy nothing installed yet...I'm going to try to get the cluster in tomorrow, the OHC will have to wait until my brother in law gets time to help me...Colorblind and electrical wires don't mix well...

Just FYI, sending or receiving paypal payments has absolutely nothing to do with compromising your paypal security.

The general idea of monitoring your financial accounts is always a good one though.

Tom I was not trying to say sending payments to people on here had anything to do with it, I just wanted everyone to know and I wanted a place to vent it! Thanks for moving it to the right forum...I'm sorry if it came off as I was placing blame on sending the payments to people on FRF I was in no way trying to do that...


And for whats going on with the disputes, paypal is waiting to hear from the people the payments were sent too...
