    I would explain to Paypal that you sold an online service & had no idea you were being paid from a stolen/hacked paypal : Just refund the money and move on,If your account is in the negative just make the money back the best you can - Thats about all you can do.

    Yes. Do not explain what was sold. Just that you sold a digital service to someone.
    If that buyer is using a hacked/fake account that is on them. I would double check as people use them online all the time...
    Do not risk getting your acount banned because pp will do so without blinking twice....

    Contact the buyer first of all and ask him his side of the story.

    if the payment unauthorized is carried through only
    then shit list the person with user name and profile
    link.

    if the payment unauthorized sticks then its done on the
    users end by either paypal seeing something in the account
    thats out of the ordinary,

    or the user is using a stolen account

    or the account does belong to the user but has used
    the excuse he didnt pay to get your stuff and get
    a refund.

    but first wait and see and let us no what the user said
    in response to your contact.

    I've had payments blocked from the receiver when I logged in from Jamaica.
    Paypal didn't inform me and they also debited the money from my account
    and showed it as processed.
    I had to wait until I got back to the UK to clear it up.
