Definetly a Scam charge. Just had to call wells fargo for the second time about this. The charge was through paypal with the name STACEY MCMURRAY each time. Total of almost 300 dollars taken.

I have just been charged $5 on this - suspect I will shortly be charged again with a much larger amount. Paypal has something to answer here.

I have a charge of $15.00 plus .45 cents for a book order which has not arrived. The charge was made on 7th December.

SCAM $2.00 charge looks like a donation, but I don't recall making the donation and why is "PAYPAL" in the charge description. I have no PAYPAL account.
