News   News : Watch your PayPal account(s)!
   posted by _Steve_ on 28-Oct-2002 22:48:09 (1972 reads)
A few weeks ago someone illegally used a PayPal account maintained by AbiSource.com, home of the free, GPL'd word processor AbiWord, to buy a digital camera for $581.00. A screen shot of the group's account shows that on 2 October one Jun Jiang was paid for a camera he sold, presumably on eBay, PayPal's owner.

A little scam like this would hardly be news if it weren't for the appalling way PayPal has failed to acknowledge it, or if that, in turn, weren't characteristic of the company's handling of complaints, glitches and fraudulent charges, according to a Web site called PayPalSucks.com which catalogues customer horror-stories.

The full horror of this scam can be found here on The Register.
