Did he know her PayPal password? How did he get the info?

Contact PayPal first. There must be a way. Also I’d call your sisters bank and tell them about what’s happened and see if they can block any further purchases from being made via PayPal (I don’t know if they do this in the States). 

Bearing in mind that he’s made purchases over several months she might not be able to get all the money back. If at all. At the very least PayPal should be able to take the card off the account and you can take it to small claims court.

Ohh, I see. I think she needs to contact PayPal ASAP and explain the situation, see what they can do before proceeding further.

wwhatt? wow I would flip!  I don’t know about the smalls claim court thing though, she did give her bank info for his account and never took it off.  Has she talked to him about it?

She needs to dispute the charges with her bank and let them handle Paypal.

You can call paypal, but also have her debit card canceled and let the bank know that it was a fraudulent charge! He’s using her card without her permission.

Good to know it worked out for her. That’s a seriously crappy situation.

For things like this, it’s up to the bank whether or not they want to refund her money.  Most banks have clauses requiring that you safeguard your information, so if she says that SHE put her card on his account, they probably wouldn’t refund it.  Paypal has no legal authority to credit the money back, so they would probably just take the card off the account, and cancel any pending charges.  She would be able to reclaim all money via small claims court, since she did not authorize the purchases.  That hearing would be quick.  Glad that they were able to talk it out though, and that he promised to pay it all back.  Hope he’s true to his word!
