    I just wnated to see if there is anybody on here who has recently done business with people, and then within the next week or two had their paypal accounts hacked. The reason i ask this is becuase i have a premier paypal account that i have had for about 5 years and never had any problems. Then recently i did some business with a few different individuals (I am not pointing fingers just trying to see if there is a connection) and then out of nowhere my account gets charged $505.98 for n96 phone (which i didnt order) .... Luckily i caught it and notified paypal. the money is being returned in 7-10 days...

    Are you saying someone at Blackhatworld Hacked your paypal account?? You really need to be careful when making those kind of accusations, do you have proof.??

    Never make your paypal e-mail address or password the same as any other website.

    My paypal password is unique and i have never used and never will use that password again for another website or account.

    I highly suggest you get the paypal key! once you set it up nobody can get into your account unless they have your key fob, email and password.
