I call him and ask he brothers can you access my Paypal account? he says YES. I’m Totally Confuse about this matter.
he says he successfully hacked my Paypal. he feeling proud of this matter.
Then I will ask Brothers Can you please Know me how to access my Paypal . as I know you don’t know the password and security question .so can you see or put the text file in my computer where I will write down my Paypal account details. he says YES.
the file he will put on my computer. Now I feel Angry and say him stupid this is not hacking this call thieve. you’re thief, not a hacker. So tell me How can we believe others for using your personal computer.
