UGH - Unauthorized PayPal Purchases

Recommended Posts

So, I woke up this morning to $300 worth of unauthorized paypal purchases on my account, which of course had no money in it, so it drew it from my checking account. I filed a report, but it takes 10 days to process. Yuck.


Changed all of my financial related passwords, which I'll probably forget as I used a different password for each account.

I'm kind of amazed, but the charges have already been reversed. I've heard all kinds of paypal horror stories, but the charges went up at 11pm last night, I saw and reported them at 7am this morning, and the charges were reversed at 11am. I'm impressed!

Good on Paypal. Sometimes they aren't so fast.

They're getting better with tech support.


Sorry that happened, though. Companies and people can be such fuckers online.

Paypal should also have a way for you to authorize transactions before they pull money out of your bank account. I really think they need to do that.
