PayPal Account Broken Into

By Tamara

Hi.  I got an message on my phone about someone trying to transfer money from my paypal.  I had my credit card and my bank account listed.  Someone on EBAY was attempting to use my credit. They were trying to tranfer the monies into an account in another country. I investigated, and found out the user ID is curtiswomak.  The amount was for over $1400.

Good thing my credit sucks, and I had no money to take, and it is also a good thing Western Union was onto this right away.  I checked my email, and whoever itwas trying to steal from me tried to access my email, and to change passwords.  The even tried to change my name to Anna Johnson. 

I am a little nervous because I have never dealt with anything like this before, just read about it.  So far, they didnt get money, however, I am still really upset about it, and am afraid of what may happen in the future, even with not so great credit. I was able to close my Paypal account and canceled my cards, including debit.  I thought this Paypal was a reputable company.  Now I know better..
