    Ok I was having a very dry day today and then I logged into my paypal as I was supposed to receive a payment and then I found something very strange :| I saw a payment of
    £
    49.75 GBP has been made to my account. Now when I went into the details of the payment, I saw the following

    Now I have always considered paypal as a blood money sucker but I never expected this 5% Cashback. BTW my account is british and verified. not subscribed to any offers or such. Did anyone of you receive such generous cashback from paypal ?

    You've signed up for the 5% cashback thing right? So it's not happening to everyone?
    I wish I would've know about this beforehand.
