What a difference a day makes...  
Quite an amazing chain of events the last two days!

I had spent most of yesterday getting a package ready to send off. I sold one of my candles on Etsy. And was creating a little something extra to include. Then my husband came home from work and was checking online and asked why do I only have $500.00 in my checking account. Then noticed it was a minus! I told him that I should only have about 80.00 in there because I already transfered the bill money the night before. Well good thing I actually did something right away for once! Someone hacked my paypal account. So the money from that candle sale was gone. Plus they put my checking account $500.00 in the red!

A little irritating my husband starts asking me right away what did I buy. I didn't buy anything! And certainly not for $600.00!!

I've been in tears ever since yesterday afternoon.

That money being taken meant I couldn't refill my monthly medications, no money to eat or drink on. (I work an hour away from home so I usually grab a snack and drink away from home). Plus I am a Passion Parties Consultant and was planning to put in a small order to keep myself afloat. So having all my money taken, I really really felt defeated and hopeless. It felt like the one dream that I had was totally ruined. I also no longer had money to send off the candle order & had to contact the customer & explain my situation.

But then the sun came up today and the day was totally different.
I looked on my Seasons In Avalon witches calendar & it says the power casts for today are 'Financial Gain' and the lesser power cast is 'good luck'.
So I went about my day, cleaning, getting some passion parties prizes ready for parties.

All of a sudden I got a notice of a $10.00 payment from a wonderful person from my pixel website!

I found over a dollar in change cleaning house today that I get to put into my prosperity jar!

My mustang is finished and back from the body shop from hitting a deer a few weeks ago. The license is due. But my husband just went to pay it for me =)
AND --- wait for it... wait for it...

My money is back in my checking account! wooohoo!!!!

On a darker side I can't help but think -- if I were a person to kill myself out of being so upset. Just look at all the wonderful things I would have missed out on today!

What a difference a day makes :)

I hope you did something about the security on your PayPal account after that.

Glad you're on top of it! That must have been so alarming.

Oh! I'm glad you got your money back. That $600.00 is no joke!

yes Euri, thank goodness our bank knows us! If I had not just transferred over $600.00 to my husbands checking account the day before, I think we would be in a situation. I'm not so sure the bank would have replaced that.

So so glad you got your money back!!
Did paypal just reverse the transfer? Did they findout who did it??

hi hon ;)
Yes paypal reversed the transfer. I had already provided them with the person who did it. Oddly I never did receive any info from them about the investigation. Strange... I've always had such good service from them, for the past 11 years or so. Now I'm not so sure I will stay with them.

My checking account was also fixed right away by my bank.

I feel so unsafe though.Not sure what to do. It's such a hassle to close it and open a new account. I haven't checked to see what other services are available that are free. :'(
