It was a beautifully cool, calm night last night. I had just finished answering a reply from Thomas and as I was in a generous mood I decided to make a donation to his theatre in New York. All went well getting into PayPal. I made my donation and up came something like “Unable to comply, please put some money in your bank account”
Something was drastically wrong. I had loads of money in my account. Had it been stolen ?? My thoughts rushed back to the Guardia Civil virus and Nigerian con men.
It was well after midnight. I needed to contact my bank to check my account. Is someone living it up in Ghana ? Driving new cars that I had just paid for ? Thoughts rattled around in my head. I don’t keep bank details on my computer. Maybe an email to my bank was intercepted. Maybe someone got my credit card number.
OMG. My bank account is empty !!
9 am this morning was when I phoned my bank. I explained what happened with PayPal and to my surprise and utter delight all my money was where it should be, tucked up safely in my bank.
It seems that this happens a lot with PayPal. Some monkey gets great delight in frightening the moths out of my wallet and scaring me to death.
Have you had a “panic” experience ??
