    Then it is your fault for having incorrect details on paypal. it's not Paypal's or the banks responsibility to check or make sure you clicked the wrong details.

    You just need to hope the funds bounce back to the paypal account.

    are you saying:
    1. you put the wrong details against your paypal account?
    or
    2. your p/p account was hacked and somebody else added their account to it?
    The questions that get the best answers are the questions that give most detail....

    You are unable to add a bank account to PayPal for withdrawal purposes unless you go through the verification process which involves PayPal sending a small amount to your bank account and then you logging on to your bank account and entering the number against that payment into PayPal

    In that way Paypal verifies you own the bank account and have access to it

    that is the only way a bank account can be linked to your PayPal account

    Therefore if you did not add this bank account then somebody else must have logged onto your PayPal account and added their own bank details which means your PayPal account is compromised
