My paypal account HAS been hacked, they literally went in and filed a buncha [watch the language--edited by colringbk] disputes and whatnot.
I have spent the last 58 minutes on the phone WITH paypal.. they have cleared MOST of this mess up.
Fun factoid - they tried adding 2 stolen credit cards to my account, then tried making purchases for them. This is what caused my account to be "locked down" in the first place..
According to Paypal.. they believe this is a "ripple" effect from the Sony hack. Over 1 dozen of my recent purchases are all disputed, some of them actually already closed.. in MY favor.. Ive spent all morning sorting thru the mess, emailing people who sold me items etc etc.
One of those people is on this website.. Stingrayii. He sold me a Zeus unpunched for 35 dollars... and that transaction was one of the ones disputed. The following paragraph is for both legal, and peace of mind reasons to EVERYONE on this board, I am a LEGITIMATE buyer who literally got butt-raped by the internet. It will take a few days for the mess to clear and all the chargebacks, disputes and everything else to be cleared up.. but EVERYONE has thier money in the end.
The purchase being disputed is NOT a false transaction. I, John Carter Mullins, purchased the item for 35 dollars and recieved my item in a timely fashion, and in perfect working order. This email is sent to the original seller in compliance with your customer service department's instructions.
Again.. I am SO sorry to Stingrayii for the mess he's been placed in.
