Illegal ATM Card Use
I have a paypal account and have had it for almost two years, but now, unauthorized transactions were made on my account via my paypal ATM card that paypal issued me.
The only people who had access to this card was paypal, the post office who delivered the card to me and myself. The only thing I have done with this was to activate it, have never used it for any type of transactions.
On Apr 27, 2003 the card was used to attempt to transfer $172.00, on this same day, another transaction for $35.94 was attempted, the $172.00 transaction was denied whereby the $35.94 was accepted by paypal. Then on Apr 28, 2003 another transaction for a further $172.00 was attempted and denied. None of these transactions were authorized from me.
When I checked my email, I received a notification about the transaction for the smaller amount, I knew I did not make that transaction, let alone authorize it, I then proceeded to contact PayPal to inform them of this problem, they told me to cancel my ATM card issued by PayPal, then complete a transaction dispute form and send it to them in the mail. They have told me that I will get a “credit for the unauthorized transactions” once they receive the paperwork but I am wondering how this could have happened that someone used my ATM card issued by PayPal in the first place when I have never used it and it’s on my person all the time.
As mentioned, the only people who have had access to this card is myself, the post office who delivered it and, of course, PayPal who issued it.
I thought that you would like to know about this problem.
