    Possible paypal scam?

    So I'm not sure what this is, but I got no help anywhere else so I thought somebody here could know what it is, or if its even a scam or anything. So at about 2 AM I recieved an email saying somebody has payed me 50$ USD to my paypal account, from somebody I don't know, and I wasn't selling anything either. And when I went on my paypal, there was a payment from my account to JA Enterprise for 5 dollars, so now I'm sitting here for 40 dollars on my paypal scared to spend it, anyone know what this could be?

    Did you click on the link that said click here to confirm payment? Chances most likely are you got keylogged or have a RAT download malwarebytes off of google and do a full scan, I suggest you change your paypal password ASAP and make a chargeback report on paypal.

    Also this is the wrong section... Here is the right section - https://www.mpgh.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=166
    @arunforce move thread?

    Edit: I suggest you also scan your computer with Combofix to see if you have a RAT on your computer.

    I may be wrong that you've been infected but for precautions do it all and if you have any malware follow this method.

    - Go to taskmanager
    - Go to the "view" tab
    - Go to select columns
    - Check PID (Process ID)
    - Now close all programs that access the internet (chrome, itunes and what not)
    - Go to CMD (Window key + r; type cmd; hit enter)
    - type "netstat -ano"
    - now look for all established connections and check the PID for the established ones and compare them to the PID's in taskmanager
    - If you notice anything weird, open its file location and check it
