To all PayPal Account owners, please be aware of this.
I've been using #PayPal for a while now; but, recently, I have caught a #fraudulent #transaction on my PayPal #account. Somehow, without me logging into PayPal, my account was charged. I notified my bank and sent in a claim to PayPal. PayPal refunded the money and said "They decided in my favor"; however, they never explained how my account was charged the money without me logging in.

Then, not long after, about a week or so, I received an email stating that "Your account set up is almost complete. Link your #bank account to unlock all the benefits of your PayPal account and get verified." I immediately thought, what account set up? I've been with PayPal for a while now. 

I figured, it may be a #phishing attempt and a spoof or spam; however, when I scrutinized the headers and the links in the email, the links went to PayPal's #domain and the #email came from PayPal's domain. I was alarmed and immediately entrusting of PayPal. So, I called them to find out what happened. I would hope they would take this serious as PayPal appeared to be #hacked ( #rooted  ) on the server level. There is no way the DNS could be valid from a #hacker and the email come from their domain unless it was a server level hack.

I called PayPal and they told me they never send emails with links in it and that my computer had a virus. They could not explain how I was charged without me logging in, which I believe my account was hacked, and denied anything on their side. They "Assured me that everything is #secure and that I have nothing to worry about #security."

Unfortunately, that is simply not true. The email did come from them. There is no way a subdomain could redirect to their domain unless the server had the subdomain set up on it and the redirect set up ON THEIR SERVER. Anyone going to:

https://email-edg.paypal.com/

Will be redirected to:

https://www.paypal-communication.com/

I am sorry to say I lost all confidence in PayPal. They need to provide me with an explanation that is truthful and not cover up any security issues they may have experienced. It's not just me either. Others have had this issue as well. See the following
