    I have had PayPal for years and never had a problem until today.

    I logged in to check and see what I needed to ship and someone not only emptied my PayPal account but my ENTIRE SAVINGS account that was attached to it. [​IMG] This hits especially hard since I'm off work and caring for our newborn daughter until December (unpaid). [​IMG]

    I filed a report (claim), changed my passwords, took off all of the accounts attached to the PayPal account and now I'm just going to have to wait to see if I can get all of my money back.

    It was some non-US with the name of: Zhang Man who did this...

    Keep an eye on your accounts, change your passwords....reconsider linking your bank accounts to PayPal because someone can easily drain them. [​IMG]

    It is....because I know what was in there and to sign in and see $0.00 in my PayPal and my savings account makes me want to throw up.

    That really stinks! [​IMG] Thank you for the warning. I hope you are reimbursed.

    I think I am going to set a lower daily spending limit and monitor my account a bit closer.
