    Woke up today with a bunch of gift cards bought on my account and gifted to a random email. Forgot to cancel my billing agreement on itunes last time I purchased. And it all came out of my paypal. I was holding someone else's money, so this is fairly important to me..

    I know it was hacked because I got a paypal email in a random language about the bill. I have already done the basic security things like changing all of the passwords on any sites that had the same password with payment information.

    I assumed contacting paypal to get my money back was the right thing to do, read some bad things about apple support. So it got reported as an un-authorized transaction and a case was opened.

    Will I get my money back? Its very clear from my standpoint that it was unauthorized, just looking at the email address it was gifted to and the random email. That would mean the IP was tracked by paypal from the purchaser. Other than that, it just looks like I bought a gift card on the account and gifted it to someone.
