unauthorised payments

i looked at my bank account yesterday and found 5 paypal payments labeled DD in last 6 days totalling almost £4000 . I logged into Paypal and apparently a managed payment was set up on April 1st for £3900 which i had no idea of. I did not set this payment up , so i immediately cancelled it and put in an unauthorised payment claim against each of the 5 payments. I logged in today to find all 5 cases closed and Paypal denying these were unauthorised payments. How in hell can 5 direct debit payments of around £800 each go to the same recipient in 5 days. Paypal know this is not right but wont adsmit it . Why have there been no payments taken out since someone set up this payment on April 1st. Ihave not even had an email back from Paypal . As far as i'm concerned if i didnt set up the payment then it is unauthorised , Paypal's behaviour stinks . What else can i do ? Iam distraught by this
