£10 Missing From Account, No Evidence On Paypal? Watch

    I just logged onto check my bank balance and found that £10 was missing from an account I rarely use so I checked it out and the first thing I noticed was odd is that it read "PAID TRANSACTION DIRECT DEBIT PAYMENT TO PAYPAL PAYMENT" with all the ref stuff etc as normal, but whenever I've made a payment before it always says "DIRECT DEBIT PAYMENT TO PAYPAL PAYMENT".

    So then I checked my paypal and theres no evidence that £10 was taken from my bank account in the summary, and I also never recieved an email from paypal regarding the money being taken, which ALWAYS happens.

    I've also been charged an overdraft usage fee which is bull since the account in question doesn't have an overdraft for starters and regardless, I've never used it.

    What gives guys?

    Maybe someone copied the numbers off of your card in a shady restaurant or something? It's possible that those people tried to withdraw £10 just to test if you would notice before they get to serious stuff.

    I would contact the bank and tell them about this weird activity ASAP. They'll probably be able to track why'd this happen and block your card.

    Contacted bank and PayPal, still waiting on replies. Wanted to see if anyone here knows what might be up, can't say I've been to any shady restaurants, I don't usually pay by card anyway.

    It sounds like you might have been the victim of fraud, I would look to get that checked out as soon as possible. Contact your bank immediately and get your card stopped.

    Phone up your bank and cancel your card.
