Got hacked on a paypal account? That's scary because Paypal is known to be "safe". Now I'm scared. Haha. How was your friend hacked? Was all the money stolen?

yeah it is. my other friend also got hacked his email account and everything was hacked including his alertpay account. the reason that was hacked is that he used weak password. it is really important to have a strong password and not to use same password for other accounts. you should have different passwords for each account and do not use again your password more than once.

oh no, that's cruelty. there are always bad people in the scene. they do not have heart. well, don't worry..karma will come to them. they're so bad. just believe in the saying, what comes around, goes around, what comes up, must come down.. they'll pay for what they've done..

yeah it is. bad people are everywhere. you can find them everywhere with bad motives. but sorry i don't believe on karma, what i believe is that "do unto others what you want others do unto you". but they will surely pay for the evil things thsy did. if not in this life, surely it would happen in the next life. if they would not turn away from their evil practice.

I think alot of times, people join other sites and use the same password for each of them. People already have your email address and they know the password you use for their site. They try to sign into your Paypal account with those details and sometimes it works if you use the same password for it. Some people highjack your computer also and steal your information when you type something in.

Hello friend it's a very sad news that your friends paypal account is hacked.. I think we should not share our personal information with others at any circumstances. And we should always use a different and a strong password for those important account we use.
