    My PayPal Account STOLEN

    Just found out that someone got into my PayPal account, changed my email address, my password and mailing address. Cleaned out my bank account, credit line attached to checking account and my Visa account. I can not even log into my account to see what is happening. Beware and check your PayPal accounts closely. If you find that you have the same problem, go to www.consumer.gov/idtheft for help in what to do. PayPal is on the case, as is the Federal Trade Commision, Police Dept and I've placed a fraud alert with 3 Credit Bureaus - Fraud Report Alerts. This just happened this past week. Just wanted to let everyone know to be ALERT.

    Good morning.

    Sorry to read about your unfortunate experience.


    This problem comes up daily, usually after a 'crook' obtains access to your PayPal password. This is usually done through email sent from a PayPal "look-alike".


    If you look through this Board for threads of the last week or two, you will find several similar instances.

    Hopefully, once the paperwork is all done (need affidefit etc...) your money will be refunded quickly.


    Good Luck.

    This "paypal" link goes to a dead page. But when the page was live, they probably had you sign in to your Paypal account, thus giving them your password.

    Devious! :twisted:

    Well the catch-22 in this whole thing is that during one period, I believe it early this year 2002 that Ebay was really sending out emails to certain members saying that their accounts have been compromised and passwords may have been stolen, and some had to fax personal documents to ebay to verify their identity. Ebay & Paypal have got to be pulling their hair out right now, because the hackers are definately picking up their pace & there are alot of posts on the boards. I read quite a bit about problems with Paypal last night on various websites & was truly surprised. I've also learned that the little secure icon means nothing, when a look alike website can create a secure website of their own. I received TWO more emails yesterday, saying my Ebay account was put on restriction (bull&*%$) because my acct. information could no longer be verified. I started to panic, because I didn't know if someone had gotten my password & changed info OR if it was another hacker email. I closed my Paypal acct. which I received no email confirming that & had to get confirmation on Ebay and had my mother confirm it from HER computer in Florida (yeah, paranoia), had someone on the Ebay board verify my Ebay acct. was okay and had to change all my passwords, Ebay ID, and email accounts. But the big message here is, Ebay (and hopefully Paypal) will NEVER ask you to verify your information from an email. I was lucky enough to be able to close my Paypal acct. since I've since found out even that can be difficult. If they ever ask you to fax documents for ID verification, CALL them first to verify THAT the email truly came from them. If I hadn't received & been leery of that Paypal email, I probably would have not had a clue about the Ebay email & given these dirtbags all my personal information!!
