Google Pay users could be left out of pocket by PayPal fraud bug
Criminals have taken advantage of a bug in PayPal's Google Pay integration to execute unauthorized transactions.
Users on PayPal's forums, Reddit, Twitter and Google Pay's Russian and German support forums have all reported seeing mysterious transactions show up in their PayPal history which originated from their Google Pay accounts.
According to the victims, hackers abused their Google Pay accounts to buy products using linked PayPal accounts. Most of the illegal transactions that have occurred so far have taken place at stores in the US with a number of them happening at Target stores across New York. As of now, most of the victims appear to be German users.
