I haven't touched my paypal account in at least 7 years, so when I received an email (in french) from paypal, I was sure that it was a spam. But soon I noticed $2k missing from my bank account!!! It listed that paypal has withdrawn $2000 from my checking account!! What the **bleep**!! When I tried logging into my paypal account with my okd password, the hacker has changed my password. So I created a new password and was able to log in. When I logged on, everything was in french!! Either some french **bleep** hacked into my account or those russians are getting more creative. Anyway, I tried calling paypal office and was on a hold for almost an hour before an actual human being answered my call. All she could tell me was to call my bank to try to stop the payment. Wtf? So I call my bank, whom I've been utilizing for at least two decades with rarely any issues. Freaking customer representative at the bank started to suspect me of fraudulent activity culprit. F this whole situation!! I've made far bigger transactions with this bank and haven't reported them as unauthorized transactions, so why are they being **bleep** now?? I have a feeling paypal had been compromised quite often since I read someone's blog that had almost identical story as me. Paypal better step up their security because their lack of effective protection is causing too much trauma on its users and non-users.
