    Costly Weekend

    Well I have one thing in common with Favre... Identity theft. Some one in Madrid Spain got a hold of my card number over paypal and decided to take a lot of my money. Thankfully I should be getting it back <crossing fingers>. It sucks, had to file a police report and go to the bank and close all of my accounts and open new ones.. Ah well, life moves on right?

    That sucks, I thought that PayPal was safeguarded from that stuff.

    Did you by any chance click an email link that looked like it was from PayPal? Never do that! Always open a browser and go to the site that way to check your account.
    They should make it good. If not PayPal, your bank will.

    Wow, that's a bummer. I too thought that PayPal was protected from that stuff.

    Re: Costly Weekend

    Someone recently got my ebay id and hosted a couple auctions under my account. ---- Resolved.

    Then I changed ALL my passwords.

    Then I got an email about a week later supposedly from Paypal, saying your mailing address and personal info was changed recently, click here in the email to log in and check if it is your new info.

    I didn't click on the link, I opened another browser and went in through the new browser, nothing had changed on my account info, at that point I found a fraud link on Paypal and sent them the original email. They said it was someone fishing for my account and password.

    It can happen, hopefully people will read this and learn.
