3 months ago, My paypal account has been hacked and accessed by a third party. the purpose of this post is to warn everybody. don’t be careless and stupid like me. believing everything I watch from youtube.. :D How did it happen?? learn from my experience, listen to my full story…
This is the actual Video that I watched from Youtube:
if you go over to watch the video on youtube, You will see many Positive comments about the product. it is because of those positive comments that I actually believe that I can hack paypal..
So what I did is I downloaded the so-called "software" made by the guy who calls himself ‘t3rminH@cker’ and made sure I had $10 on my paypal account. (this was required on the video description.)
After downloading the software he asked for my password and email address, I gave it to him,. one hour after giving him my password, I was shocked to see that there was a New payment made on my transaction history after I logged in to my paypal account. He actually Used my account to buy a domain at Name.com for $9 and sent me a SPOOF email that I actually authenticated the payment. after that, I did not care,. I thought it was all part of the process of "Hacking paypal".
1 hour after that, an email was sent to me by paypal that a "new email adress" was added to my paypal account. which brought me the conclusion.. "Hey, How can I be so F**kn’ STupid! I gave my password and now, my acccount is HACKED!" I quickly deleted the Email address he added, Changed my password, told paypal about it and Quickly Submitted a Dispute claim to name.com to retrieve the $9 unauthenticated payment.
The end of story: Good news is that, 3 days After submitting required Documents asked by paypal, They studied it and gave my account back. the $9 stolen from me was returned by name.com.
