Pay, shop, and do even more on the PayPal appGet the App
I have one as well on my bank account and haven't used my account in about a year. Hoping my account was not hacked.
I did get one as well. Perplexed to say the least. Found this thread from a duckduckgo search. Only other one I saw was on Reddit. Hopefully, someone from PayPay will bud in an address this. Don't think this a hack, but you never know nowadays. In a way, I am just glad I'm not the only one. 🙂
I called paypal help line, spoke to a live person and explained what I (and all of you) are seeing.
she said there is no record of any transaction from paypal, not even a $0.00 transaction. no autobot or any other type of account verification transaction. bottom line, she said was not from paypal and that I should call my bank to get more info on the source of the transaction.
Last time i called my bank about an ACH transaction, they couldn't tell me anything about it.
anyway.... my bank is a credit union and their help like is closed until monday.
here's hoping it's not a hacker
i followed up with my credit union and this is what they told me: "We understand that you are concerned about a transaction from PayPal for the prenotification. We do apologize, but the only information we have on this is that something changed in PayPal and they are sending out new prenotifications to verify accounts again. They are just verifying that your account information is correct still correct"
this seems reasonable except that when I called paypal they said that there is nothing on their end that would do this.
