PayPal charge scam Reports & Reviews (1)

• Jul 24, 2023

1) received email from PayPal indicating a $500 charge to my bank account, if I didn’t agree call (xxx) xxx-xxxx

2) checked my account, saw the charge and called the number

3) Mr. Brown answered, identified himself as PayPal representative, told me he would refund $500, asked permission to access my bank account, the left side of my computer screen was my bank account, the right side looked like a coding screen, he said enter $500 carefully but apparently I entered $5,000 at which time Mr. Brown stated I couldn’t back the extra zero off. He said now I owe him $4,500 because he just transferred $5,000 to me, but not to check my balance yet. He stated the only way to pay him back and retain the $500 was to purchase gift cards.

4) Having trusted PayPal for years I didn’t stop and think about what was happening

5) I became confused about how much to pay Mr. Brown, but finally realized I was being scammed and ended the conversation with Mr. Brown who kept saying I would get my money back.

6) I didn’t, and lost the money in my bank account and maxed out my credit cards.

7) I reported to police, given a case number and forgotten
