I too have just had 60.00 as a weekly direct debit taken from this account . I contacted my bank straight away and they refunded my money and cancelled the direct debit that I had not set up

This person also stole money from my account disguised as a direct debit under PAYPAL PAYMENT. PayPal knew nothing of the sort and I reported the fraud to my bank who thankfully refunded my money and cancelled the DD. I think it's linked to eBay and fraudsters stealing your information from their.

Has taken nearly £300 from my bank account by pretending to be payapl! Absolutely fuming! The bank gave me her details! What is more annoying, is that the Bank want me to ring her to sort it out! Surely that is the Fraud teams job!

I have had the same thing just happened to me, maureen whitmarsh has set up a direct debit for £64.11 She is a thieving scammer. Everyone with an eBay account beware. Keep an eye on your bank accounts. It's fraud. Hope the fraud squad find her and put her in prison where she belongs

Had this happen to me yesterday. Rang up bank first thing this morning and they have dealt with it and refunded this direct debit. Unsure as to how my information was given but probably due to data leaks and people selling information on. No point contacting PayPal as they probably would have no clue as this person is pretending to be them. Scary stuff.

Btw I think Maureen Whitmarsh is a name used by Paypal across all of there direct debits rather than necessarily an evil mastermind. Maybe she was the initial person to set up the DD process at Paypal in Europe or for their bank!

From my investigation this morning (having had a payment taken from my account that I didn't recognise), this is a Paypal DD so my recommended steps are:
- check whether you have bought anything with Paypal or are expecting money to be taken (note when you sell things on eBay you will most likely agree to them taking the fees directly via Paypal DD from your bank account/card). If you are, problem solved, if not read on...
- call your bank, explain that the direct debit was not authorised by you and you are not expecting this payment. They will hopefully have DD indemnity on your a/c meaning they will put the money back in and will investigate directly themselves. (Lloyds did this for me :-))
- call paypal and have them investigate themselves, they can search for your bank details in their systems. They should be able to tell you whether you have multiple a/cs etc and sort out the issue.

Mine turned out to be an error by Paypal on a refunded payment rather than fraud but it is very frustrating!

I have just had ££2229.36 taken from my bank account
As I am a business owner and run three internet sites I have used paypal for over ten years, straight away I knew something was dodgy
Maureen Whitmore is a dodgy name and this is a scam    
It shows on your account
A payment to paypal does NOT show up as this on your account
it then links to JPMORGAN STANLEY
With an account number that has NOTHING to do with either Paypal or JP MORGAN
Some scammer has got hold of bank details and has been setting up direct debits
Check your accounts!!! and REPORT TO YOUR BANK

I called Paypal, got clarification.    JP Morgan is Paypal bank and direct debit could be an amount that is outstanding.    Paypal will first take the balance from your Paypal account than the remaining from your bank account.    Check in with Paypal first !

This woman has been posing as PayPal and taking money out of my account without any permission or contact from myself. She has removed £180 from my account. It's now been recognised by my bank and the fraud team are now issuing legal proceedings to stop this thief from stealing money off innocent people... My only advise is to regularly check the outgoings of bank payments and question everything. Stay safe...

A Maureen Whitmarsh from Bournemouth posing as paypal took £79.99 from my account .I had ordered goods via eBay & became suspicious when a monthly direct debit had been set up by this despicable female. I cancelled payment immediately and the matter is still under investigation. People please be vigilant

I have had £76 taken from my account today.    I went to my bank and they are investigating MAUREEN WHITTMARSH. WHO EVER SHE IS. I certainly don't know her!
Guest (London, United Kingdom) May 6 2016, 1:57 pm Post
This has happened to me too. They took out £50 from an account I don't use which caused me to go into my overdraft and I got charged a further £25! Did you resolve the problem? I've cancelled the direct debit but I'm still £75 down!
