The issue in GetHuman-bkrawiec's own words
I received an email that someone charged a purchase to my paypal account the amount of $***.** USD. I was given the number *-***-***-*** to call indivating that if I had not authorized this trnasation the agency using this phone number would be sure that I was not charged with the purchase. I call the number and was transfered to another number in California. This individucal at the number, gave the following infomration: First the individual indicated that my e-mail had been hacked by four people in New Mexico. Then he assured me that I would not be charged for this purchase, BUT. to do so it was necessary to do the following: (*) go to a store and obtain a Google card. At that time I would be required to spend $***. But I was assured that I would receive the $*** in refund. I said to the gentlemen, I live a distance form a store (Walmart) and it would take at least ** minutes tp get there. He replied, that is ok I, we will stay on the line with you while to drive to the store and make the purchase. The individual stayed on the phone. I cancelled the phone and he continued to call for the next ** minutes.*The next call was from a number in Flordia. I have not spoken with anyone since this occurance. My main concern is that I will not be charged for this $***.** USD which was noted as an App Store Deposit.*Please advise.
