Default F’ing hate Facebook and PayPal

I had an old page set up under my account that I used to use for promoting dogs for adoption. Hasn’t been active in several years but I never deleted it or took off the PayPal direct payment for ads.

Yesterday while checking my credit card statement online, I noticed a $250 pending charge from PayPal/Facebook. Discovered someone from Florida got into my account and placed a scam ad for counterfeit shoes on my page. They had limits of $500 a day for a week to promote the BS ad. They turned off notifications, so I wasn’t made aware of it.

I nixed it immediately, kicked them out of my account (they were still logged in), changed password, deleted/cancelled PayPal and deleted the page.

Disputed the charge with PayPal. They said sorry charge stands. Not their problem.

Disputed the charge with Facebook. They said tough luck. Charge stands. Now I can’t even get the form to continue any dialogue/dispute their decision.

Disputed the charge with my credit card. They say they will take care of it. Had to cancel the card, at least PayPal and Facebook won’t have it.

Do I need to change my checking account number that PayPal also has? Don’t want them taking money from it. I’d rather not, as I have direct deposits and payments set up from it.

I would ask the bank to stop any charges on that checking account and then go into paypal and take it off the account. If that isn't possible, ask your bank to change your account number.

Apparently there are still some rational people left in this world. Was able to re-submit my dispute and actually got someone that actually looked into it rather than rubber stamping a denial. Agreed it was a fraudulent post and refunded all money back.
