Casey – May 27, 2020
Victim Location 62424
Total money lost $9,400
Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill
May 8, 2020 received an email alert that my PayPal account had paid $9400.00 to a person unknown to me. Immediately alerted PayPal that the transaction was in error. The money was reversed, then I reported to PayPal that the money they put back into my account was not mine. They removed the money ($9400.00) and sent it to another account. I then received a notice from UPS that my purchase had been delivered to my address. Checked with UPS and the tracking number was delivered to another address and was a legitimate purchase and signed for by the purchaser. There was never anything delivered to me with that tracking number. Now on May 20, 2020 PayPal has charged my account the amount of $9400.00. Now PayPal is sending me emails that my account is overdrawn by $9400.00 and must be paid immediately. They had paid the hacker and are now trying to get me and my legitimate small business to pay for their mistake that I informed them about on May 8, 2020.
