    sry English is not my native lanaguage but hope you understand what I am talking about and let me know is there a chance to get back my funds.

    3 days ago I received email that my PayPal account is limited. I never touched any links on this email. Was login in my PayPal account and its says that my account is limited and I need to change password/security question and send them proof of address. I was doing this all because not thinking that anything suspicious because was using paypal.cOm url.
    Now (today) after 3 days I received this kind of email:
    Dear My Name

    Our review is complete and we have restored your account.

    We appreciate your patience and thank you for your help in making PayPal
    the safest and most trusted online payment solution.

    Kind regards,
    Relana
    PayPal


    I must say that I was very happy that now everything is ok again :)
    After 3 hours I realized that $2000 is gone and left just $150 (if you are the scammer and reading this then I have to say thank you that you left $150 to me also :) )

    Is there a way to get back my $?

    my last thread is here :) http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ice/126553-paypal-account-access-limited.html

    P.S. if there is some way (which I think not) that I could catch this guy physically then I would pay for that $3000.....I quess not have that kind of way to catch him?

    you pay $3,000? sure.. I found him.. send me the $3k and I'll send you the complete $2k back...:D

    Why would you pay $3k to get $2k?

    Contact paypal and get it back, simple as that.

    Ouch! That sucks...

    Your best bet would be to contact paypal - that's the max you can do.

    contact paypal, check your system and change credentials.
    you can get everything reversed, especially with Clickbank.
    do not waste time.

    being old school myself, I understand the 3k reward. did business in your part of Europe too - things are a simpler there....

    @TrafficSource: Dont worry somebody purchased clickbank products using your paypal account. And remember it's clickbank and you can get full refunds

    Guess what bro. You were hacked.

    Someone got your PayPal account, sold it to someone and/or cashed it out themselves.

    You'd be surprised that forums exist that actually SELL hacked PayPal accounts and cash out services. ( none that I will list here )

    Don't keep so much money in your account, that's a dumb move.

    Unfortunately, with hackers using private crypters, this sorta shit is more common place than you may think.

    Purchase Key Scrambler, and I will be releasing a software program soon that will help you to avoid becoming a victim.

    thank you.
    what kind of stuff I must do right away to get rid off this hacker? the problem is that I receive funds very often and I can take out only $500 per day!

    Format your system once. Maybe u installed a program bundled with a keylogger.
