PayPal accounts abused for unauthorized payments.

Since last Friday, users have reported seeing mysterious transactions pop up in their PayPal history as originating from their Google Pay account.

Issues have been reported on numerous platforms, such as PayPal's forums, Reddit, Twitter, and Google Pay's Russian and German support forums.

Victims reported that hackers abused Google Pay accounts to buy products using linked PayPal accounts.

According to screenshots and various testimonies, most of the illegal transactions are taking place at US stores and especially at Target stores across New York.

Most of the victims appear to be German users.
