Re: Unauthorized Charge from <removed>

Hi everyone,


I'm sorry to hear that there was unauthorized activity on your bank/credit/debit card accounts. The listing of the PayPal street address in association with these transactions is most likely a fraudulent merchant using PayPal's info as their credit card name, rather than an actual transaction made through the PayPal system. If the transactions do not show up on your PayPal account, you can contact PayPal by phone to request that a representative search for any activity outside your account associated with the card number. If the representative cannot find the transactions in question, then it is most likely a fraudulent merchant, and the activity would need to be reported directly to the card issuer as fraud. If the activity is on the PayPal system, the representative can open an investigation into the transaction. To contact PayPal by phone, click Help & Contact at the bottom of any PayPal page, then Contact customer service, then Call us, then login to get the number or click call as a guest.


The card itself should be reported to your card issuing bank to have the number discontinued and a new number issued.


I hope this helps!
