Lithuanian Fraud Paypal - Steer Well Clear

Like if this guide is helpful

My Paypal account was hacked somehow ( i would like to know how - but no comms from paypal on this?) and I ended up paying for goods via my legit cards and the address was in Lithuania!! I received the Paypal notification -' your receipt for your purchase' in my inbox - what purchase I said!! The fruadsters in Lithuania used both my bank account debit card and a mastercard to buy goods ( Honda spare part and a memory stick from Uk ebayer shops).

I immediately disputed both transactions and cancelled all my bank details on paypal and changed my password. I did receive a refund within 24 hours from both parties ( one store said he though a bit suspicious a Lithuanian address so did not post the item). I now will only submit my bank detail on Paypal just before I pay IF I use ebay again... and will immedeiately delete the details after payment has gone through - until I am sure this cannot happen again. Anyone any idea how they do it??
