My husband had someone break into his Paypal account several months ago. He reported it to the local police, and they determined that the thief ordered stuff online and had it delivered to our house :eek: as a UPS 10:30 a.m. delivery. The thief then must have stood on our driveway at the appointed hour and accepted the package from the UPS driver! We work during they day, and so do most of our neighbors, so no one saw anything. The police ran a check on the name that was used to sign for the package (not anything close to my husband’s name, BTW) but found nothing, and so they declared the case closed.
Did the thief just happen to come across a local account, or is there some sort of network where they say, “I got one in Minnesota, so, Bob, you take that one!”
Husband says he didn’t respond to any phishes, and virus and spyware scans came up clean, so we still don’t know what happened. We did get the money back from Paypal, but we’ve vowed never to use them again.
