Hey kids, don't use a bank account as the pre-approved payment source for PayPal billing agreements, or this will happen when somebody hacks your account.

Airbnb hack update 

We didn't hear anything from Airbnb for two days. I tagged their help account in a whine on :twitter:, and two hours later we're getting a refund.

I really hate customer support in 2019.

We got our money back! Safe and sound. Shout out to the awesome fraud team at for giving me actual resolution steps and making me feel less helpless, gg folks.

@ellotheth sucks that this happened to you, hope they can work this out. Thanks for sharing though, it's a good reminder to avoid linking payment accounts, especially to services without modern security features such as 2-factor authentication.
Any idea how exactly you were hacked?

@Veloxy Nope. Probably a re-used password on the Airbnb account.
