    Ayo this is wierd, so I wake up this morning and I get a message "why did u chargeback" and im like what the hell are they talken about so I said I didn't chargeback on anything I haven't been in my PP account since I sent u the money. So I'm thinking at the time maybe this person has the wrong ID. So I go to my paypal account and behold theres a dispute case open i didn't initiate. Has this happen to anyone else

    Never heard of such a thing, but Paypal has made errors in the past so it's very possible wrong data was entered somewhere.

    Resolution Center - Case Reversal Details


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    PayPal is constantly monitoring site activity and reviewing transactions.

    This payment has been selected for review and we have opened an investigation.

    This is what's at top of the dispute

    Nah I wasn't phished, I don't know what's going on..im trying to close it but they don't give me a option..I honestly think there trying to run game and steal money, they tried something simular with my girlfriends account. She was only a buyer and sent money to a person and paypal chargedback without her consent and told her they were keeping the money until she added a bank accountand this was over the phone when she spoke to them..so she had to chargeback to get her money back from paypal after they help up and transaction and had her account limited until she added a bank account

    In your mind.
    I think they suspect that your account was stolen or something. Did you send from a different computer or from a proxy?

    I don't think they suspect you of anything. It may seem unwarranted when you think you didn't mess up, but it's a security thing to protect your account. I had the same thing happen to me - twice - because I run a proxy from my desktop and had that "aw, shit" moment when, just as I logged in, I remembered doing so from a proxy is a violation of their TOS.

    It'll work itself out. Fastest way to get it straight if that's the likely cause is to call them. First time I had your reaction and waited to see what would happen. Took a few days and then you have to do a song & dance that ID's you as the person who logged in. Second time I called and had it worked out in a day.

    It happens, as it did to me.

    It happens when the payment comes from and unverified buyer, or, is out of what the computers feel is the normal activities of the account.

    I just refunded the money when I tried calling the number provided and it had been disconnected.
