I just happened to get an email saying that a transaction for 39.99 had come from my paypal account to a company call digital river ireland ltd so reported it to paypal as it was not me who authorised it and without me knowing its happended in the past also
since reporting it paypal they have closed the case and i cant even contact them regarding it
after searching google it turns out that it is indeed a big scam and happened to loads of people so if that is the case why is it still allowed to happen and not blocked by paypal it is obviously known dam well by them that it is happening
here is the link from google about the scam and basically they totally ignore it and continue to let them do robbery in plain sight
Digital river is an ecommerce payment company. They partner with companies like Samsung, Microsoft, razr, McAfee, avast, etc. If you buy from those websites, your charge may show up as from digital river. They also handle subscriptions. A lot of times what happens is people accept a free trial for a product, like anti virus, and forget to cancel and it auto renews. Be careful what you are accepting Again...Digital river just handles the orders and payments submitted by partner companies.
If i remove my credit card from PayPal, how can I pay off my PayPal account?
thats all fine and dandy... but then PayPal will attempt to directly withdraw from your linked bank account.
Check if you had a subscription set up.
Click on the profile tab (icon next to log out) > Click on payments third option along on the thick blue band top of page > "manage pre-approved payments.''
