slowly enough that you didn't hardly notice I assume?  I don't want to feel like an idiot because this has been happening for a long time, but in my situation, yes...somebody has my credit card number and uses the money right up when I transfer money from Paypal to that paypal MC. These are hackers who have nothing in life to do but figure new ways to take money from people. Even if you aren't sure you made a transaction, you probably didnt and it was probably a hacker.

 I found a charge on my recent card statment listed as PAYPAL *SUKROSONGGO followed by the number in question. THis card was listed as a funding source but the car expired in December of 2012. Repoerted the charge.

IF you used a debit card contact your bank and dispute the charge/charges. If you use a credit card contact your CC company and dispute those charges.  Of course, contact PayPal, and dispute there as well. I don't use PayPal and/or ebay anymore because they claim to be secure and they are not.  That is the only safe way, but you have to change what cards are on file with them so that inifo isn't available to anyone - in other words cancel your card info with them, etc.

Not so fast on saying transactions with phone number 402-935-7733 are probably legitimate.  On 12/28/2016 I got a charge to my VISA credit card from "PAYPAL *PROSPEROUSA". This credit card is not linked to PayPal, so PayPal wouldn't be charging to it.  I have a positive balance in my PayPal account, so there wouldn't be a need to make a transfer to cover a PayPal account deficit anyway.  Finally, I did not place an order on that date.

I too found a few of these funny charges on my charge card statement for amounts that I couldn't find on my PayPal statement. But, when I looked further I discovered that in my case they were all legitimate charges.

 

What happened with me is that I would buy something for $82 (made up amount for this example) and I would pay for it with the balance I had in PayPal of $60 and the remaining $22 on my charge card. This $22 amount is the funny amount I would see. I didn't see this amount in my PayPal on-line statement but if I looked at the transaction details for the transaction on that date I would see the two individual amounts ($60 and $22) and their sources.

 

So I can't say that all of the incidents here are legit or not but in my case they were.

 

Just my 2 cents (+/-).

The strange amount may be the net between the eBay auction amount and any credits like eBay Bucks used to offset the total due -- only the balance due posts to the credit card.

 

It threw me, too, until I clicked on a transaction dated one day earlier and the details showed me what had happened.

If you have been reviewing your bank records or credit card statement, and have found what you believe to be an unauthorized charge or charges that shows “Paypal” and the phone number 402-935-7733, take a deep breath, and relax. It may not be what you think. Here’s what that transaction really is.

This is how it appears on your bank statement or credit card transactions when you pay for something via Paypal, or something is otherwise charged to your Paypal account (such as through an automatic transaction, or using your Paypal debit card, for example), and you don’t actually have enough in your Paypal account to cover the charge.

Remember way back when, when you signed up for Paypal, and you had to provide a bank account or credit card as a backup billing method? That’s what that charge is. It is Paypal using your backup billing method to cover the shortfall because you dont’ have enough in your Paypal account.

We agree that they do a poor job of making that clear (and to be fair, it may be out of their hands in terms of how it shows up on your statement). But that’s what that charge with the phone number 402-935-7733 is.

Now, all that said, if you don’t have a Paypal account, or have not used it during the time that the transaction occurred, or otherwise don’t remember a purchase that correlates to that entry on your bank statement, by all means you should contact your bank, as it’s still entirely possible that it is fraudulant.
