So, my account was defrauded on the 13th of Sept. for xxxx.xx. I immediately contacted PP for a resolution and they issued a refund which cleared the 17th. Yay for me. The same day the refund clears my bank I get a notice saying their system got an insufficient funds flag and it would try again in x days. Panic attack sets in and I contact them again and they assure me there are no pending transactions.
Low and behold the 20th Im again hit for the initial amount (that was refunded). Ive explained the insufficient funds response was in error and the money was in fact sent and even have documents from my bank saying the withdrawal was completed 2X. So, now Ive lost my car and on the verge of loosing my house and no way to get this resolved. My initial thought was to reopen the case which started this but surprise.. cant do it. It really saddens me as Ive used PP for years without issue and the first real problem I have seems to be treated as unimportant.
Also, Ive taken steps to secure the account and connected sources to prevent it happening again.
