    I had a paypal acc of mine hacked, luckily it was an account i dont use.

    The only thing i can think of how someone can have gathered the PW is by intercepting traffic on a proxy?!

    Because i bought a bunch of proxies from proxybonanza, and it might be possible i was accessing this account via proxy.

    Then, somehow, someone got access to the paypal account. Coincidence?

    Mind you: This is the only thing i can think of how someone could've hacked the account.
