Hello, So yeah, when I got home from my Sunday Theater gig, I had an email from Paypal saying that a payment had been initiated about 10-20mins before I got home. My first thought was "I'm not selling anything..." followed by "uh oh." I also had an email from Paypal about how they were investigating a potential unauthorized user on my account...and that a credit card was removed. If memory serves, the credit card was one that had expired awhile back. I reported that as a change too. [Sunday night] I filed a dispute on the payment & change in credit card information with Paypal. Immediately, I changed my passwords for all the related sites. E.g. Ebay, Paypal, credit card company, and Chase. So, I called Chase the next day [Monday] to see if they could block any charges to my account coming from Paypal. They said no since the charge hadn't actually happened yet. I thought, Ok, nothing has happend with my account yet, so I won't worry. Today, Tuesday, I checked my account about an hour ago. I see that I have a negative balance...the PayPal thing went through. I called my bank-the dispute services were closed. So I called Paypal. They said the funds are on their way back to my account and should be credited within 10 days. The website said that claims take up to 30 days to complete. 30 days from the 5th is exactly when my rent is due. I'm calling Chase as soon as I wake up to dispute the charge and see what I can get done. I feel like since I called to have this very charge blocked, they should be able to do something about it...at the very least, not hit me with over draft fees, at max (doubtful) reverse the charge. Because if they do for the charges I've made today, I'm screwed. We're talking at least $120 if not closer to $200 in over draft fees as I made 2 purchases today and several items from yesterday hit today. The amount of the hack/unauthorized was $496. That's almost a month's rent for me. In the mean time between what I had in my account and what I'm getting this weekend, it was bill money and a large chunk of May's rent. If Paypal or Chase drags their feet...I'll be seeing if I can do a Loan via the Bank of Dad until it does get sorted out. Any wisdom or advice from people who have dealt with similar stuff? I'm mainly annoyed and frustrated. I'm in a relatively stressful span of 2 weeks, and having this be in on it just irritates me. all the best.
