PayPal accounts hacked en masse

"Victims reported that hackers abused Google Pay accounts to buy products using linked PayPal accounts. According to screenshots and various testimonies, most of the illegal transactions are taking place at US stores, and especially at Target stores across New York.

Most of the victims appear to be German users."

    Have never used Google pay.

    Never linked my PP to anything, really.

  • Wait Google Pay still exists as a thing? Once they got rid of the cards, I thought everyone pretty much dumped them en-masse.

    My pronouns are asshole/asshole/asshole. I will give you the same courtesy.

  • I am more interested in why target German users to spend their money in the USA.

    Ballpark 100 US Dollars.


    Atleast that is the maximum funds we keep in the account that we HAD to create because making payment to service providers (electrician, street vendors, neighbourhood grocery stores) was getting difficult. My carpenter does @ 300 US Dollars worth of transactions every day on GP - so maybe average could be higher.

    Of course they will, to make the profit margin even bigger.
    Did you checked how big it is currently? You better do that.
