I posted this on Kitchen Table Forum but wanted your input too
...anyone having problems with them?
Checked my e-mail and paypal sent me a notice that I wanted to reset my password with them - the next e-mail was a verification from a paypal that verified a payment of $14.99 to a company from China. I was in bed when all of this happened. My 9 yr. old GD was playing a game and she was told she had won 10 days of training her imaginary horse. She gave them my e-mail address only (she doesn't even know my paypal password) With my address, they were able to access my account and without my password, they were able to get $14.99!!! I contacted paypal and the charges was removed, but that scares me that it could happen - paypal said they couldn't do without my password, but thwy did! I want to go after this company who did this - it is a childs game where the kids train horses, feed them, exercise them and play with them. She saw it when she was playing another game - it is attractive to children and a "trainer" talked to her - it could hve been a pervert!!!
I did not click of the e-mail asking me to reset my password! I know about this scheme. I read the next e-mail sent within a minute from paypal charging my account for $14.99 from a company in China. I went to paypal thru my bookmark and went from there - they took off the charge until they checked it out. This
morning, I found out they are honoring the charge! That it is consistant with my history with them - I buy fabric and products - NEVER paid on a kids game! I am trying to close my account so they can't get me for any more money and have tried all kinds of different ways, I used paypal so this kind of thing wouldn't happen I will be boycotting them and letting everyone know what is happening - the merchants too, This is B*S! Does anyone know how I can close my account with paypal?
