I was a VICTIM to FRAUD! I had signed up for a Paypal Debit Card, through my Paypal account. I chose NOT to have a back-up source, such as my bank account...boy, am I glad that I made that decision!
I was hit not once, not twice, but three times! They say the third time is the charm HA! Well, by the third time, I was a little peeved. The two transactions showed "pending" on Sunday evening...so first thing Monday, I called and had them cancel my debit card and they DID reverse the transactions, since they had not gone thru. Thank GOODNESS! Chris was the man that helped me and he was so understanding and sweet.
So, we thought it was all done, right? Wrong!! Another transaction went thru today for $59.90 and when I signed onto Paypal, there was a big window that popped up stating I owed paypal money. See the gentleman at paypal on Monday, told me to take all my money out of my paypal account....said that noone would be able to try to pull money out, especially since the card was canceled. I did, so we thought that would be it.
Some how paypal allowed the transaction today. They said an "oversight" on their part. I had to fill out a form and for now, they did refund my money back and it shows I do not owe them anything. We shall see how things turn out. We are not talking a small amout, we are talking a total of about 199 bucks. In this day and age, our family needs every dime we have (not trying to sell a sob story, just stating the facts) and I feel very VIOLATED and UPSET to say the least.
So these people or companies that tried to do this have wasted my time, ticked me off and has caused a lot of stress. Yes, for now it is okay......but being on the money subject hubby said he is tired of working two jobs and living pay check to pay check and that I should go out and get a job. Funny thing is....some gals that have gotten to know me, thought that the money I made was "Play Money". I told them we need the money I earn, to live. So, with that being said, I will get out of this pity-bag (I hope) that I am in and get to work!
I have a couple of swaps that are going out tomorrow and damn, KNOCK ON WOOD-----------> I am ON TIME *smirk* So, all in all....I guess it is about "THE ALMIGHTY BUCK" and sometime, somewhere, something has got to give! Don'tcha think?? Tomorrow will be better...that is what I keep telling myself. Toodles, ~Tonya
