Hi! My account has been hacked. Someone went in and made a $581 dollar purchase on a website and then went ahead and closed my account. This is a new account I had to create to get in touch with Pay Pal. Has anyone had this issue occur before? Does PayPal come through with support with an issue like this?
Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear about the unauthorized activity and the closure of your account. That complicates things, but PayPal can still take a look. Please contact customer support so a representative can manually open the investigation and give you the next steps. You can reach customer support by Facebook, Twitter, or phone or email.
