Default Paypal Sucks.

I don't have the greatest luck in the world. Got paid on friday when I was on vacation in NC, checked my bank account on friday on my phone and had $450 in my checking account. Got home saturday night, checked my balance....-$24.

Apparently somebody got into my account in sucked money directly out of my checking account and sent money everywhere via my paypal account.

This **** sucks. I am flat broke until paypal reimburses me, which they will, but it'll take up to 10 business days. *sigh*

Watch out for Email that says it'* Paypal and to check your account, that'* how they get your password. NEVER use the Email to link to yoru account. I get a few of those a month, just delete them. Paypal will never ask you to access your account threw an Email.

That Sux. Make sure you get the bank to reverse the overdraft fee you will get charged.

Usually a password with both alpha and numeric characters are harder to crack. And never ever in a million years update your paypal account through some email you got.

You can usually view the header info and see that its not from paypal.

That really sucks big time. Good luck and hope you get your money back. IP addresses are logged at most sites so that could help.

Do the details show shipping or what the money was sent for?
