Unauthorised transactions

I have a few pay in 3s set up in the last few months which I expect charges for. However recently in this pass week I have been charged over 15 times for different recurring payments under the title ‘pay in 3’ however I can’t find some of these charges on PayPal transactions and I definitely did not set up this many pay in 3s. I have tried contacting PayPal and my bank but neither are doing anything. I am really unsure what to do and am losing money every day due to these charges. What do I do?

Hello @Alexr04


Welcome! Thanks for visiting PayPal's Community Forum! I'm sorry to hear a recent Pay in 3 transaction hasn't gone quite as you had expected. I found the following Help Center article I think may be able to clear things up: Why is there a pending authorisation shown in my PayPal activity for my Pay in 3 transaction?


I hope that helps!
