My account just got hacked and I lost over USD1000.
Currently under investigation. Sigh....

Lesson learnt : Transfer your money to a bank immediately and never leave it in Paypal.

Care to elaborate on your incident? Is it a security breach over at PayPal?

My overseas clients pay me via paypal. Left a certain sum in there.
Someone claimed all of it through a Mass Payment transaction.
Now under investigation.

sorry to hear that bro

What is mass payment?

Can paypal prove that the account was hacked thru cyber attack or the fraudster managed to crack/obtain your password and login to ur account as you normally would?

Sorry for noob questions. I oso have paypal ac.

From what the rep told me, the person managed to obtain access into my mailbox, thereby spoofing a paypal email and obtained my login credentials. Then sent the payment to himself apparently. This whole thing is mind boggling... and frustrating.
