Wow man, that really sucks!

I hope you can understand, but I had to edit your post to remove the usernames mentioned.

I can see why the money is deducted though, if someone has hacked a paypal account then some poor guy is sat there having his money put in your pocket, I guess it’s crap to see the money go, but good karma for you, right?

Yeah a real pity, I was sorry when I heard that! It could happen to me and I even didn’t think about that chance… Thanks for posting it here as “hey that happened ” ;)

Maybe some guy downloaded items for 100$, reported a hacked paypal account and got the items and his money back. What really fascinates me is that you got 3 of those with 100$ deposits, another good reason for referral tracking.

How do we prevent a hacked PayPal a/c? I use PayPal and I am concerned.

Effectively, it seemed very strange to me receive for 3 times 30$ of referral earnings in a few days, is not something that happens often. Precisely for this reason I am not angry.
