    Hello,

    LOL, I am so like wtf!?. I received about $1,5k in my paypal few minutes ago but I DON'T KNOW WHY!!!

    Why could something like this happen? I think the money where sent by someone in Canada because he sent Canadian dollars. Is this a mistake or what?

    Lol .. free money :confused: :eek::eek:

    No ... really now, if there's someone who sent the money by mistake just (however I don't know how you got my paypal e-mail address) PM me with your name and I'll send the money back (if you really was the one who sent it). If not, I AM SO DAMN LUCKY!
    =)

    UPDATE: Someone hacked the payer account and I don't know why ... sent the money to me :|.
    The bad part is that we are both screwed now ... we got our paypal accounts limited and $3000 are on a temporary hold for God knows how long.
    God damn it! Next time when I receive money like this I won't be that happy.

    Haha When I first read about the story I know in the end gaypal will put a hold on your account. I mean there is no way paypal will believe that people accidentally sending a payment to a false email addresses.. not with that huge amount of money... so you have to explain why he send the money to you or else gaypal might banned you permanently, just my $.02

    Send me my money back before I call the FBI, and they'll come.... they'll come.

    P.S. This is another reason why PP sucks.

    Maybe someone did it on purpose to limit your account?

    Have you had any nasty costumers? : p

    I was about to tell you the money was from a hacked paypal. I guess someone wanted to screw you over and sent a hacked paypal money to your account. I won't get excited to get free money from nowhere and if I do, i'll immediately issue a refund to stay safe.

    UPDATE: Now my account got limited. I called paypal, explained the whole story and eventually they said they will refund the guy BUT my account will get permanently limited. Furthermore I have a balance of -$60, yes, a negative balance! They said that I have to add some funds to cover the negative balance.
    My questions to you are:
    1. Why would I add funds to cover the negative balance if my account got permanently limited?
    2. Is there any way to open a new account on my name / my card?

    Man what a crazy way to set you up..

    you should have sent the funds to another paypal..that way the funds would have been yours...

    I would surely take the trouble to make a new fake account if some one threw that much money at me just like that ?
    agree everyone ?

    if you want another paypal account do this

    1) get a new business name usually from your city ie a DBA
    2) get an EIN number from your local tax office
    3) open a bank account with your new DBA/EIN
    4) wait for your new debit cards to arrive from your bank
    5) open a new paypal account....
    6) hit rep and thanks button! LOL

    All that is not needed honestly. I lost my paypal that was 6 or 7 years old because some moron charged back 2500 that he paid me and received his software. Paypal choose to pay him back so I choose not to pay them back.

    I made a new account with a new address and bank account since I moved right after that but in the same city. It uses all my same info except the address and bank account. I have had the new one for a year or so without any problems.

    That would have only made a 3rd account also get locked. They own the system they can see where it went lol. Plus then he would have a harder time getting his account back since it would seem like he was up to something. As of now he can just say he did not request the money or know where it came from. Will be a huge headache but should work out.
