I wake up this morning and get two e-mails from PayPal. They are receipts that get sent automatically upon paying someone. www.chinesetravler.com I don’t recognize the site and checked it out. The whole site is in Chinese!! 😡 My account got hacked obviously so I logged in to change password and such and then file a claim for unauthorized payments.
Later on, the website personnel called me to confirm if this was my own doing or not. Of course, I told him it wasn’t. I also filed for them to look into this case. While it’s not much, $52.50 total, it’s the CONCEPT that they could’ve taken a whole lot more!
- Make your passwords stronger by using non-words only that you know
- Change the passwords frequently.
I hope this doesn’t happen again.
