Transaction appears in bank account as Paypal, but does not show up in my Paypay summary
I fell for the Allway vacuum scam, paid $50 for a vacuum that arrived and was a completely different brand than advertised. The site said I was paying through paypal, and the transaction appears in my bank account as "PAYPAL *ALLWAY TECH HK," but does not show up in my Paypal transactions. I thought I would be able to dispute it and get a refund through the Resolution Center, but I'm not sure what to do if I can't find the payment on my account.
Is it possible for a business or website to charge me through Paypal and it not show up? Or did they just trick me into thinking I was paying through Paypal when I wasn't?
