What wallet are you using?

Bitcoin Core?
Electrum?
Something else?

Payza looks very much like some sort of payment facilitator, a bit like Paypal?

Most online services like this, don't give you direct access or control over the bitcoins, you basically just have an "account balance" which is a number in their database. Because of this, it is not unusual to see Bitcoins moving to/from any addresses that you might deposit to or send from.

Without the Bitcoin address in question it's a little hard to tell, but I suspect that like most websites that allow you to "deposit" Bitcoin, you're sending coins to a specific deposit address which you have no control over and do not "own". These payments are then collated into the services storage wallets (hence the large amounts of BTC that you have no knowledge of) and your account is credited with $X or Y BTC.

Think of it a bit like going to your bank and depositing $100.00 at the teller (sending BTC to your deposit address)... your $100 note just gets put in to the cash drawer with all the other notes (all the BTC being collated into one storage address)... Your account then gets credited with the deposit and your balance goes up.

So, what you're most likely seeing is just Payza moving coins around "behind the scenes".
