Good point; my apologies Tye if you thought I was having an unjustified go at you.

Having to scroll past an entire page worth of duplicate content prompted me to say something in the first place.

Also, I replied to the OP query earlier in the thread

I don't think anyone was questioning that they gained access to your account, just pointing out that this was a security issue on your part rather than Paypal's.

No you are mistaken - earlier someone suggested that it was possible I could have entered the wrong password and frozen the account myself. I was just saying that I know this wasn't the case - there was definately someone else in my account, I wasn't disputing that it was probably my shortcomings and not paypal. I should have had a stronger password.

ok give this a try for a new password...

Think of a name (wife, girlfriend, partner)
Think of their age
Think of their favourite colour

Now make a sentence, doesn't have to be grammatically correct, and substitute some of the letters with numbers so...


which translates to my wife is 47 and likes blue

Obviously my wife isn't 47 and hates blue but that's beside the point You have a pretty strong password...
