Last night I noticed that I had a number of paypal emails and order confirmations with game.co.uk, this was odd because at the time of order I had been merrily turned myself inside out on the turbo.
I logged onto to paypal to see if these where spoof emails but there where two transactions to game showing, one was for Xbox Live points @ £34 and the other for PSN Wallet credits @ £35.
I promptly changed passwords etc on the PP account and informed PP of the two transactions that I had not made and in firness to PP within an hour they had confirmed that they would refund the money.
Now the stupid part (on my behalf). I though I would see if the PSN credits had been invalidated or already 'claimed' by the erstwhile cyber tow-rag so I entered the code into my PSN account and to my horror it then proceeded to credit my account by £35. Looking back at it it was an extremely dumb thing to do. So instead of someone effectively taking £35 quid from me I have inadvertantly now taken £35 from PP.
So do I try and confess my stupidity to PP and hope they don't think I was the original tea leaf and that the whole stunt was of my making?
Or do I keep quiet and hope it all goes away (the PSN account is registered to a different email address but it wouldn't take Columbo to work out it's the same person owning both e-mail addresses)?
Somewhat worringly I can't seem to gain access to my PP account this morning to check what is going on although I could last night, is this because the scally has tried raiding my PP account agin but couldn't log on due to changed passwords etc?
Help me STW and advise me in my hour of stupidity!!
