2 faked payers out of 400 : not too bad
Just had some "wonderful" news from Paypal telling me that they've suspended a payment for £9.10 due to a bank reversing the charge...
Strangely enough Paypal have done this once before but last time they just took the money back, no excuses which was annoying but at least now there's some kind of consultation period (or at least one that looks reasonable :)).
What gets me is that in both instances the account has had address details for eBay and Paypal set properly to the same thing and I've received positive feedback so it's a bit of an odd one.
To be fair the first time around the account had been dormant for 9 months and yet they bought a spares & repair printer for 99p + P&P, whilst this latest one was a sub £10 item for a waste ink kit. Hardly theft of the century...
I'm counting myself lucky it was nothing bigger really but is this a new trend on ebay...ie: phishers setting up small transactions on hacked accounts and then using that as the basis to purchase a much bigger item having set up recent bone fides?
Ah well... counting myself lucky that it's only £25 lost to theft so far.. Still annoying but hardly shoplifting level.. :bored:
