Well this is just awesome. Paypal customer service says they can't do anything but wait until the claim is over. eBay customer service say the charge did not come from them and I have to resolve this with paypal, which if I'm not mistaken is the same company ?... Now Paypal forums have no clue / don't care. What am I supposed to do ? Thanks anyway to anyone who at least took the time to read my post.

Hi, last month, I woke up to a pretty awesome ( insert sarcasm here ) email about a receipt to a 134$ pre-authorized payment to eBay seller fees. I do not sell on eBay. I opened a claim, 10 days later, I got my money back. Never really knew what happened. I called eBay, they said they had no idea where this charge came from. Same explanation from paypal. I went to eBay, noticed I had a pre-authorized credit card set up... I doubt this caused the problem, but I removed it anyway. Now yesterday, about 1 month later, I woke up to the same aweome email. But this time, a 499$ charge to my credit card ( that's half of my credit limit ! ) to eBay seller fees AGAIN. I changed password multiple times. Now I opened a claim, again, hoping it will be resolved. Paypal and eBay customer support aren't helping. I feel like my only way out of this is once the claim is over and I ( hopefully ) get my money back to close both my paypal and eBay account. Anyone else ever had this problem ? Any other possible solutions than just closing both accounts ? Thanks for reading.
