    I called and got an automated answer. It told me I don't have a balance on my account. That it would send me a link on how to reset my password which I have done already and cannot get it to work even entering my bank account number.

    They fricking took my money.

    You can get a human on the phone there... it is just a big pain to do it. I've called them in the past when we had issues and got a real person on the phone.

    wait, where did you enter your bank account number? i don't think if you do a pw reset, you have to enter it anywhere
    it seems to be a possible phishing attempt at least for me
    so call paypal once more and ask for a supervisor and if i were you i'd also freeze this bank account

    yes I think, its a phishing attempt.

    Even I had forgotten my password once, so I called up at their customer care number, talked to a customer care executive, she said she would send me a mail for password reset, but I didnt get the mail, so I asked her to let me speak to her supervisor. The supervisor sent me the mail immediately, nowhere was I ever asked to enter my bank account number.

    Immediately speak to your bank as well as call paypal up and tell them about the mail that you got....

    Yes, they do ask for these numbers if you try to reset your password.

    I got asked for my cc number a few times.. to OP just to make sure, check whether it's really paypal.com on the address bar...

    if all things right, call them up soon.
