    Paypal sent me an email to notify of fraudulent activity with my account,so logged in and found over $100 in charges.

    I called them and they reversed the charges and credited funds back to my account.

    These are the culprits.

    Yeah i know its probably not much help posting the names,but guess it wont hurt...i just googled one of the names and found a thread of someone getting scammed on ebay with the same name i posted.

    Strange thing is,i had my paypal account for a long time and never sent money before untill few weeks ago when making payments to members from here (im not going to point fingers or mention names)and next thing you know,my account gets hacked. Is this just a coincident?

    Think its time to close my payapl account.

    It could very likely be a key logger. I suggest running a full system scan to see if you are in fact infected. I recently remembered someone saying their paypal was being sold, and was most likely from a program shared here that came with a keylogger (the thread is deleted though)
