here is the scoope.... I only use pay pal for a few things.
1. for my clen , been doing this for a while.
2. sold a bike on ebay(1st time
3.bought some B5 (1st time)
So, me and the wife get home and open the mail and there is an NSF for the account... ...He(the bike purchaser) had $300 put in the account for a deposit on the bike and I put in $100 to cover the costs of the B5, plus a little extra for the wife(It is her personal checking account). So I am like WTF.....I get on line and the account is -$960. Thre ATM withdrawls in odd amounts, like $454.61. How the Hell do you take $454.61 out of an ATM??? So we head to the Bank. Aparantly Someone Used her info to make the withdrawls. They were in Canada, hence the odd amounts (American $ exchange).
I can see if they were making on line purchases with her card #, but you need an actual card to make ATM withdrawls. And How the hell did they get her PIN??? Plus the 1st transaction put the account negative...and it allowed them to continue to withdrawl cash.
They have started an investagation...but who knows when and even if I'll see the money back.
BE CAREFULL USING PAY PAL OR ANY OTHER ONLINE PAYMENTS!!!!!!

This is odd, because Paypal doesn't give out your card number or your pin number to anyone. Sure its Paypal?

From that site.
1. According to PayPal accepting their ToS (Terms of Service) in effect means you waive your rights to credit card consumer protection laws, and that you may not issue a chargeback for unauthorized use of your credit card and PayPal account.
