    Today someone hacked into my wife's paypal account and did an unauthorized charge to europe. As today is Thanksgiving I want to give thanks for my family, health, and BHW!!! I especially want to give thanks that I will never be like the pathetic vagrant that tried to steal from me today.

    I hope everyone has a great day(regardless if you celebrate this American Holiday) and many great wishes to you...

    You can file a refund on paypal and claim that it is unauthorized access. I've done a refund before with this kind of method and it works for me.

    Sorry to hear about this! You should be able to get your money back, I have seen people do it many times. Happy thanksgiving to you as well and the rest of BHW! I would like to thank everyone for sharing their methods and helping each other. This forum has sped up my IM career by a land slide :)

    Just a couple hundred and I immediately filed a dispute once I learned about it. Hopefully without any problems I should get it back in a week.
