This is exactly what happened to us in August. The hacker bought mp3's from two different websites and spent $1200+ dollars
I about pooped my pants when I found out the paypal emails I got showing my "recent purchases" weren't spam emails. I thought they were so I deleted them and a day later went on my bank website and saw what they had done. Thankfully I got all the money back.

Some people work so hard at doing awful things. Just think what positive things they could do if they would put their minds on good things instead!! I hope everything gets straightened out for you quickly!
I edited my posts not too long ago too, unfortunately when people quote you with your email, it's hard to get them to edit their post just to do you a favor
I will definitely be pm'ing my email from now on and am about to buy a security key card! Thanks, Gr82cre8 for the info on that!
