On Sunday, May 20, 2018, I awoke to a 3 hour old text from paypal, saying: "A -$200.00 USD transaction with XXX* on May 20, 2018 was marked suspicious. Please reply "Yes" if authorized or "No" if not authorized."
I replied "No" immediately, and immediately got a text response back, saying: "We're sorry, this request has expired. To access your account visit m.paypal.com."
I decided to not visit paypal on my phone, and instead went to my computer, logged in, and found that yes someone had indeed already removed $200 USD from my account. I immediately went to the Resolution Center, and in about 30 hours was denied, saying it was "not unauthorized" - what in the world is "not unauthorized" about any of that?????
This information below, all I know about this transaction, is definitively shady.
