Wow that sucks man. I only had to respond because your topic headline made me laugh pretty hard. Hope it all turns out. Just believe in karma.
You? Got your Paypal hacked? Blow me down. Thats pathetic to hear that you have been hacked
I am pretty sure you wont fall for phishing, and you will have a malware cleaner in your PC and all. How do you think you got beaten?
Aye it will sort itself out, I phoned my bank first so the money doesn't matter!
Its actually paypal who makes things worse ha
you will get back your money, unless the hacker used your IP address to transfer the funds.
That I do not know, as some may know I deal with large seo clients so I would like to think I know how to have a secure password and stay safe!
I have a brand new laptop which had decent stuff on it so I would like to think its clean, I don't use my laptop for anything other than remoting and office!
very strange indeed
Same shit happened to me last week. I called up the nerds at paypal and started yelling. The got me my money back in less than a week.
Very rare I yell but I know what you mean
It's really rare, OP. You must have done something stupid. Anyways, I hope you didn't loose much.
oh piss off mate
It wasn't the "nerds at paypal" who took your money so why did you take it out on them? You do know they are just doing their poorly paid job right and would like nothing more than to help you, right?
When people complain about Paypal asking dumb questions or demanding proof of address etc, I can only shake my head. If Paypal just gave out money/info to anyone claiming to be you, you would be screwed 10X worse.
I hate people who yell at customer service agents who had NOTHING to do with the situation. I work in customer service, and if someone calls in to yell at me, I put a big fat note in their account "Customer is rude and possibly trying to scam us be very careful and ask EVERY question possible."
Call center customer service jobs are shitty and trust me, the people on the phone would LOVE to just fix everything for you to make you happy, but they have a job to do, and guidelines to do it by. No reason to make their life worse.
Paypal would only be hacked due to trojan/keylogger/phishing/brute force. None of those should be blamed on paypal.
I'm sure number two (after pishing) reason people are hacked on paypal is that they use the same combination of email/password on another website. This website gets hacked, then a bot tries all the mail/password combination from the database.
It happened when Sony was taken down couple of months ago I think ^^
punch in the face you say? hey wannabie I'm a PP hacker
jk sucks that man, i know someone that had a big business of his ruined because of something like this got totally cleaned out, he was using his PP acc abroad afaik, hes a member here but thankfully has rebuilt his business now
I hear you bro, I had the opposite. They were depositing money INTO my account. I was refunding like crazy (needed my account thanks) and even had a rep on the phone refunding with me and still couldn't keep up. Finally got it all straightened out after having MY account suspended for 2 weeks and being told it was my fault because I published my email address on my website. Like WTF??? OF course my email address was on my website!
What 's really rare? Do you know have any idea many loaded PP accounts are for sale everyday on underground places?
Ignorance is bliss...
Ðžh yes they deserve it bro. If a company like paypal offers a shitty service and I have no other choice but that com., I will make every person in that company feel x10 worse than I feel, because of their shitty service.
And paypal support deserves it all.
Great! You are a truly a complete loser, and I hope you have to work customer service for Paypal one day and realize how horrible you were and regret every time you were ever rude to anyone in customer service. Paypal is not a monopoly. There are PLENTY of other options they just take harder work. You hate the company that helps you make money, how does that even make sense?
Well thats too bad but OP at least u can be sure paypal will freeze their accounts for suspicios activity and they wont be able to withdraw them. been there done that.
You don't quite belong here, you know?
