Just been hacked!!!

Beware folks, this has just happened to me! Today and over the last few days.

And I'm spitting bullets right now.:pissedoff:

Just been notified by my credit card supplier that my card account has some 'irregular activity'.My PayPal Account appears to have been hacked and thousands taken against my card.

Fortunately the credit card company have re-credited my account but word of warning. Don't get complacent - check your PayPal and card accounts regularly.

All mine were taken by eastern European sounding named people and for a nondescript company in Luxembourg and all irregular amounts.

Paypal is notoriously unsecure Waspie, I have mine linked to a spare bank account that I only put money into when I need to.

As I have just found. Removed my card and no longer using the hits. Still keeping my account as there is useful info regards the transactions. But never again.

Actually grateful to Barclay Card for calling me this morning. I rarely check my Pay Pal account.
