While eating lunch on January 20, 2014, I received a text message from PayPal for one-time validation code. Somebody was trying to steal my PayPal account. I ignored it and continued eating.

:( ignoring...not good

bs story or what?

For someone who has had constant problems with someone trying to steal his @n account he sure takes security lightly.

the second i get an email like that i log into the account and see what it is all about. you wait and you lose as in this case.

Yes, because scanning your computer is going to make all the difference to someone calling up pretending to be you.
