It’s back to work for most of us again in this country. Though still a bit hung over the weekend festivities, I’ve gotta psyche myself back to the corporate grind. I am hoping for a good start of the week today.
So, off I went doing my morning ritual. Coffee. Oatmeal. The morning papers. All went good until I opened my email. This is what greeted me this morning. I got a message from PayPal confirming a $7.99 “payment” I made for a software.
What ticked me off was that I didn’t purchase anything online. What’s more, I found out that my password has been changed! I couldn’t even check my available balance. Last I knew, I have about $10 remaining. I wanted to dispute the transaction by wrting Paypal, but was given a U.s. nimber to call. I still haven’t reached them. This is the confirmation notice I got from PayPal:

All along I thought Paypal is safe. Well, I guess not. Has someone else experience such fraud? Help! I don’t want this ever to happen again. It’s good that I was able to withdraw bulk of my funds last week. Darn! Thats hard earned money in there.
