so you logged in to see your funds transferred? you sure that your account didn't get hacked?

I think your account might have been hacked mate... maybe a trojan or password stealer on your PC? Do you have password auto fill on?

No I never get any Notification from the site at my email. I dont know about my account is hacked or not. But I can see there are too many countries in my logged in history. Its even not possible. I have account on other site too, but this type of thing never seen.

yeah but after you scan your PC for any malwares.
that's an awful lot of different IPs though. could be from one person who uses multiple proxies.

So sorry to hear that. But always use 2FA if the website allows, plus 2FA in your email for confirmations(google has it via SMS), plus a general code sent to your email every time you login the site. All the mentioned are available in Localbitcoins, don't know in Paxful. Security is never enough when it comes to guarding your precious coins. If I were you i would format my PC if I have the chance and have not installed any wallet in my PC (although many of desktop wallets allow you to recover funds via seeds or private keys). Wishing you the best.

Sorry for your loss. it isn't a good idea to make passwords password  Grin but even so 2FA should still prevent it from happening. why did a hacker loggedin a number of times, they coould  be from pax themselves.

If you've logged in via tor then maybe that could be a reason, else maybe your login info is already public so many tried to login and when they see no balance they log out and maybe one of them might have got lucky. Head over to https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and you will know if your info is public.

Very sorry this happened Embarrassed
Right now constant phishing attempts are ongoing where username is scraped and @gmail.com appended and email sent out. We really wish we could stop these phishing attempts. I strongly suggest you to enable 2-fa.

How did you check who is logging to your account? Is any option on PaxFul to check that? I can't find that..  Roll Eyes

I have not had any problems with the site.

some of the users are problematic.

make sure your 2fa is set up.

go into the settings and adjust the notifications.

So you are here to defend paxful. Why we need 2FA code if we have a strong password? Why these all the scam accusations are almost same that they withdraw their BTC? because it someone in the team steal those info and withdraw the btc no doubt.
