    Come into work this morning anf find that my paypal account has been charged with 10 or more transactions to skype - I don't use skype and have never visited the website - rang paypal and reported it - but they say someone mus have gooiten my password or my question answers - scary stuff - they have contacted skype but it will take a while to sort - i may tell my amex which is registered with them as well.

    :( - I thought paypal were safe - gutted about this this morning - not a happy bunny today for all sorts of reasons

    Nothing is safe these days. Definitely tell whatever cards are linked to the account.

    Sorry to hear that. I thought Paypal were okay too, although I'm so paranoid about all the fraud stuff that I hardly ever order anything online now. :(

    Had issues with PayPal a few years ago. Took forever to get things sorted, then they recurred regularly. Finally closed both my PayPal account and the checking account attached to it.

    A company I never did business with kept emptying my checking account. Fortunately, there wasn't a lot of money in there, as I used it exclusively for eBay transactions and swept the account of all except $20 or so weekly. The only thing it ever was used for was eBay, so I'm curious how someone else obtained the information. Never did find out. :(

    Needless to say, I no longer use PayPal. Period.
