    I’ve got a charge for $15.83 on my bank account statement with the line item description “PayPal *Igottrade402-935-7733/VISA Purchase (non-pin)”. The charge does not appear in my PayPal account even though I’ve read accounts that indicate that this is an automated system set up by PayPal to cover insufficient funds. I’m guessing the latter is not true and that this is a scam, but want to make sure.

      Stephen, this definitely looks like a fraudulent charge. I would call PayPal customer support at (888) 221-1161 and ask them to investigate.

    Man's voice did not sound very professional. He was stating what should have been "alleged" and already had an opinion against me.

    I just got a call from them asking if I had made a transfer. I did but they should have it on their caller id. Just saying.

      This is one of the most annoying calls in the universe. Not only that, but I'm not a fan of Paypal to begin with, so why should I give them my business? Considering opening a merchant account at this point…

    Why do you never call again? I can't call you back, I have to pay… Call me again instead. Ok? Thanks.

      Based on our reports, it appears that this is a fraudulent attempt to collect a debt. No need to call them back, and don't provide them with payment or your personal information.
