• Sent too much money from my debit card on paypal and it still went through, please help?

    Basically, I wanted to know if some money had come through on my Visa debit card so just signed up to paypal and entered the card details, and sent just 10p to someone I know to see if it would be transferred - meaning the money had come through to me (I knew I would either have nothing or the £20.00 payment I was expecting). Then after, just to... show more
    Basically, I wanted to know if some money had come through on my Visa debit card so just signed up to paypal and entered the card details, and sent just 10p to someone I know to see if it would be transferred - meaning the money had come through to me (I knew I would either have nothing or the £20.00 payment I was expecting). Then after, just to be sure, I decided to send £25 expecting that it wouldn't go through as I didn't have that much in there, but that went through too... So my question is how?? Where is this money from? In the other persons account it has been added to their balance so definitely went through so I need to know where the money has come from and if I will have charges etc. And yes I know it would've been so much easier to go to an ATM machine but it's like 3am and none nearby so I decided to do it this way. Stupid I know. This might be an obvious question but I'm only just 18 and know very little about all this stuff lol... please any help would be appreciated
