I've also just had two unauthorized payments made by protektradi and protek trading services on my paypal account. No idea where they come from.

Did you recently purchased online through Paypal? I have a PROTEKTRADI $-227.53 on my credit card, and it matches a recent purchase I did on through Paypal from this shop Feels legit.

I recently had this as an e-check from PayPal for $599.99 - was a fraudulent charge. We immediately closed our account and had to re-open a new. Also had to file a claim with the bank to get our money back which took over a week. SCAM!

Bought a digital file on Etsy, showed up on my credit card as from this company. Legit, at least on my end.

I purchased digital printing materials from an sponsored company called Vicpro digital . When I paid them there was another charge from a Protek trading services for a slightly different amount! I have contacted Vic pro three times and have recieved that responses and have yet to receive my product! I ordered feb 23 and it is now March 9. No product, two charges, and no results. It just so happens that both companies have the same telephone number!

Well I got a letter from PayPal saying I had opened a 1000.00 account. Of course there is PROTEKTRADI charge for 227.00. I didn’t open this account. Called and had account closed. Funny it shows an online payment. Not from me! But credited to this bogus account. Anyway hope this crap gets caught.
