Excessive deductions via PayPal using 279234
1st July 2019
My wife passed away three months ago (March 2019) and had been ill for the past 18 months from Chemo.
I am now reconciling many of my wife's Bank Accounts and I noticed on one particular account there were deductions every 2-3 weeks via PayPal Australia under a common number of 279234. My wife was too ill to make these deductions and I am the receiver of all parcels or posts, which I hadn't received for these deductions.
It's obvious that the PayPal account had been hacked.
There were a number of large purchases in November 2018, which drew my attention to her account. All the other deductions were between $20-30.
Has anyone had this problem and how did they confront PayPal of such?
Check if you she had subscriptions set up...
