How do I report an unauthorized transaction on my PayPal account?

If you notice a transaction that you didn’t authorize, let us know right away:

  1. Go to your Resolution Center.
  2. Click Report a Problem.
  3. Use the filters to find the transaction or select it if it appears right away.
  4. Click Continue.
  5. Click I want to report unauthorized activity.
  6. Follow the instructions.

If you can't log in to your PayPal account, please call us.

Remember, you’re 100% protected against unauthorized transactions sent from your account.

And be sure to check your pre-approved billing agreement payments. This charge could be from a service you signed up for in the past.

 Here's how to check and cancel your pre-approved billing agreements:

  1. Go to your Settings.
  2. Click Payments.
  3. Click Manage pre-approved payments.
  4. Click the merchant's name and then Cancel.
