I got hacked?

WTF. First I noticed yesterday someone stole my credit card number and was buying stuff in germany so i had to take care of that. Now I just got 2 emails form paypal. The first saying I requested a passoword change, the second saying it was changed. I didn't request a password change so I tried to log in and my password was not good. I called customer service and they took care of me, but what's next? Did someone hack into my computer and get all my info? Any tips on how to protect me?

It's all those adult sites you're subbed to.

Not sure what you can do but just cancel all your credit cards and notify your bank that someone got ahold of your info.

On a serious note, put a lock on your credit until this gets sorted out. You don't want people opening new cards in your name.

Citibank, hsbc, discover, and amex (among others I'm sure), have something called virtual or disposable credit card #'s. I use citibank as my primary cc. For any and every online/phone purchase, I generate a new card #, valid typically for a year, but with a dollar amount ~5-10% over what the total expected price would be.

Once the number has been used, it can no longer be used by any other merchant. If there is funds remaining on it, it can only be used by the same merchant.

It takes 2 minutes longer for each purchase to generate said #, but no worries about the # being stolen.

As for how you got compromised, do you store your login/cc info on some file in your notebook computer, flash drive etc? Have you used either of these at some foreign computer recently?

Sucks, dude. My insurance company offers fraud and identity theft insurance. They monitor your shit and then deal with all my credit card companies (cancelling my accounts and dealing with the fraudulent charges) and the credit institutions if that stuff ever happens.

getting a card number is not has hard as you would think or hope. just keep an eye on your credit report to make sure that you did not just buy 6 new homes on some remote island.
on the news they showed that when you swipe your card at any register it is transmitted over the stores local wifi network and anyone with a laptop and free software can get all the credit card info they want.

i am sure that everyone here will get their CC number used at some point .

I spend $130.00 a year to make sure this never happens - Equifax has a service where all 3 monitor and alert you to anything that is outside of the borders you set - $$ well spent in my mind amigo

Sorry to hear of this shit dude

Call all three credit bureau's and put a lock on our account. Sounds like you are already up for hell dealing with this. You should also make a police report. If they have your paypala nd cc they probably have your SSN and will be trying to steal your identity. Sorry

What is happening to you is different, they are not applying for credit in your name. It appears they already have some of your fianancial info. I would shut them all down. Inform the companies involved.
