    I have just found (and deleted?)this direct debit reference: JPMC RE PAYPAL INTL. which appeared on my bank account? No idea how it got there or why. OK no money taken but could be somewhat doddgy? I have an account with PayPal but there is no way of making contact with them (anyone ever try same?) Telephone gives my account balance and buzz off :mad: Email has about six standard item you can (talk) about and if your question is not covered it's buzz off again !! :mad:
    Question, anyone else come across this JPMC and what's it all about:|
    Kind regards

    I too have found this on my bank account, and I found it has taken £3.24 from my account.

    I believe it can only be 1 of two things.
    Do you play either of the 2 games......
    Astro Empires
    Travians

    And have you bought any upgrades/diamonds from either of those games?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that is to do with PayPal's bank funding.

    I've also considered that as a possibility

    You are not wrong, it is used for External funding of a PayPal account from your bank. The DD is initially setup when you first verify your bank details.

    Nothing dodgy in it at all...

    I expect that information is buried deep in PayPal's (contract?) Would be nice if items on our bank statements, payments in particular, gave a -real- name rather than some obscure 'jmgncs' and the like.
    Kind regards

    I had cancelled it as well when I noticed it a while back and had to re-do the direct debit stuff again. I think it was when I had signed up with Paypal Payflow so they could take their £20/month. They could indeed simply call it Paypal and not some kind of dodgy looking name!

    On hindsight I think it does happen when your Paypal indeed becomes verified and they deposited some pennies in my account. I then had to confirm the amount received back to them to prove the bank account was mine.

    Hi,

    JPMC = JPMorgan Chase
    RE PAYPAL INTL = Regarding Paypal International

    Paypal use JPMorgan (a large American bank) to process Paypal transactions, this is clearly stated in the Paypal Privacy Statement.

    JPMorgan have a UK Campus in Bournemouth hence the payments appearing to originate in Bournemouth.

    I hope this helps.

    Alex

    #10 Alex. I understand what you are saying. But how do I make contact with someone at JPMC re a DD payment of £36.17 on 28 Oct 09. I realise this is to do with PayPal but I cannot track down who it has been paid to and for what.
    There are no transactions at all in my PP a/c
    I had it happen once before (smaller amount) but could find that, so it was okay.
    Is there a telephone number please.
    Any advice you or anyone could give would be appreciated. Sincerely MM

    Hi Geoff. Thank you so much for such a prompt reply. Please excuse me if I seem a bit dumb - it's my age - 70yrs and female - not a lot going for me!!!

    I have checked everything I bought around the time of this DD payment - only two items that I can find but neither are the amount I quoted.

    I will see if I can get any sense out of my bank (Alliance & Leicester) later this morning and will let you know the outcome. It's the Direct Debit bit I don't understand.

    Many thanks again. MM

    Hi Geoff, Re my post ^^^ #14. I have finally tracked down the transaction - couldn't find anything yesterday in my PP account history.
    On 5th Oct I paid a supplier £41.17 by PPal. Evidently, when there is not sufficient funds in PP a/c, JPMC (or bank) set up a DD for the difference £36.17 but not until 28th Oct, which confused me.
    Apparently this is the correct method and I agreed to this.
    I have checked earlier transactions and have done this previously.

    Told you I get confused easily but at least you set me on the right road to sort it out.
    Many thanks MM

    Sadly I know of two persons who have lost money thanks to fraudulent debits. Below is an e-mail from one of them

    Paypal were not sympathetic with either, the one below did manage to keep her money. The other lost £250. It seems to be rife with this company and I have told both they should report the matter to the SFO

    "This morning I made a ten pounds payment via PayPal. At the exact same time a payment of £57.95p was authorized by direct debit from my bank account via PayPal, without my knowledge or authorization! On contacting PayPal I was told I could set up a helpline service which would research getting my money back and deal with any PayPal problems I may have within the next 12 months at a cost to me of only £100! As you can well imagine I did not feel that this was a particularly good idea. I contacted my bank who reversed the payment and refunded money for free as it had not yet gone through tomorrow would have been a totally different story.
    Just a heads up. On putting the firm of JPMC into Google I get lots of people reporting the same scam the only coincidence being they were making a PayPal payment at the same time.
    So please check if you pay anything PayPal that just the one transaction has gone through. I could not beleive that PayPal could argue that I have authorized this payment when I haven't and I find the whole thing very fishy."

    Re: JMPC - I have been assured, by my Bank A&L, that this Company is the authorised handler for PayPal to set up a DD for one off payments.
    But I am not sure what happened that they made two payments from your account. MM
