I've had 3 credit cards hacked in the last 1-1/2 years, but have never had my PayPal account hacked. Of course I'm not responsible for the credit card fraud, but it's a hassle to go through every time. And I really don't use my credit very much, and it's only stored on-line at 3 different places like Amazon, eBay, etc ... big sellers who you'd think would have a secure website. I've bought things on-line from AliExpress (China), using PayPal ... there is absolutely NO WAY I'm going to store my credit card number on that website.A credit card.
Number spoofing? Was there any way to verify you were actually talking to someone at PayPal when you called?That’s why I checked the real phone number on paypal.com and it matched the one on the email. That’s the number I called and got the scammers.
