Bank robbery

Postby gene9p » Sun Dec 30, 2018 10:36 am

my savings account was hit for 15K on Christmas day. The Bank, Chase, is reneging on coverage due to an unseen by me Paypal charge of 2.00 in August. How someone got that account number and was able to setup a PAYPAL account is beyond me. Check your accounts carefully, especially dormant ones like my savings account. After 60 days they can literally clean you out and the banks do NOT have to cover you. :x

Sorry to hear. It has been many years back when someone hit my PayPal account ...PayPal covered the fraud so if you have not yet tried that angle you might see what they say....

they didn't hack my paypal account....they set up a Paypal account with my savings account number. paypal said they would do everything and inform law enforcement..but then said no the next day saying my bank's problem. Paypal knows who has the account, knows the bank, and knows where the money went, but they are withholding that info from me because it wasn't MY acount..so any claim has to go against the theif's account and that's none of my business at this time..geez.

I suggest you contact a local TV station with your story. That should light a fire under Paypal's ass.

thanks, it's very frustrating. Amazing how cold hearted Chase bank and Paypal are.

I'd also be looking for a new bank, and let them know why!

Sorry to hear about your unfortunate delima. Not sure why Chase won’t cover you. If the transactions were not authorized by you are any other member registered on the account, then I becomes fraud. Most Chase banks are registered under FDIC. I would call the FDIC and enquire exactly why your deposit was not protected.
