Yes, its true some smart ass Indonesian mofo hacked my paypal account. I figured out yesterday during they when I got an e-mail (which mail btw, put in my spam box), that my PayPal account had be suspended for suspicious transactions. I’m like, wtf and I got my ass over to the paypal website to see if something really happened. The interesting thing was as well, that I got a response in from some ebay seller earlier that morning that shipping cost 20 bucks for an unlocked iphone. Early in the morning, that did not ring a bell, so I only made the link later that afternoon when I noticed some dude used my paypal account to pay some iPhone he bough on eBay. To make matters even worse, he changed my name on ebay to his, and even left the shipping address behind in ebay as wel as PayPal. He also added some visa card number, which he probably stole, put that on my paypal account using an old adres I left in there, under a bogus + name + my family name and charged to that card. Well, I was pretty damn pissed off to say the least!!!. I’m very careful when using creditcards, or paying for shit on the net, I never put my password or usernames in in e-mails or whatever. Apparently, anyone can be hacked, but no knows why me and how the mofo managed to hack it in the first place. Now, my password was very strong, did consist of two words, but put together in a way that makes no sense at all. Now I have stronger password, with non existing words and letters, its still not uberstrong, but should keep the occasional Indonesian hacker out. So, I had to change most of my passwords as wel.. All in all, its pain the ass and lot of shit. But I documented everything, so if they ever give me any shit about this, I’m gonna sue paypal, American style!!!
