    I have had problems with PayPal too. Somebody was using my account and buying things on E-Bay. The only good thing was our bank refused payment. I have tried to cancel my PayPal account and just get the run around. I would never use them for anything again.

    We are fairly sure that the person who stole our credit card info a few months ago was someone with whom we made a motel reservation over the phone. Usually I'd do that on the Internet on a secure site, but I felt I needed to verify that the place would have a dog friendly room available when we arrived. Next time I'll do the reservation online after calling about the dog. I think the secure website is safer.

    Another non-Internet card theft opportunity that happens very frequently is in restaurants when the servers routinely carry the card away from your table to process them. Inappropriate charges in that situation happened twice to some friends of ours, and restaurants should be pressured to put card readers at the table.

    If you go to "settings" on Paypal there is an option to have them notify you if any changes are made on your account profile. I've used Paypal for at least a dozen years without any problems. They do the best they can to keep their site safe. If they didn't they'd quickly crater! It is far preferable, in my opinion to make purchases from sites that accept Paypal than to give my card data to any random site that is selling something I would like to buy. Generally, unless it's a very well-known site I wouldn't buy from it unless they take Paypal.

    I said that about credits cards and banks etc. is there seems to be a lot of hacking and unauthorized uses going on in out little quilting family here. I do agree with you that there a lot more places your card number can be stolen and used other than the internet.
    I have seen a lot of emails being hacked here too. And I wonder how all this happens. I heard a while back Facebook will take your contacts and add them to your page. If accessed from your Iphone, smartphone or whatever one you use.

    I have said before be wary of these social sites, lots of people can gather all kinds of info on you. And use it for no good except to ruin you and yours.

    Thank you! Of course I read that right after sending money via Paypal! Thankfully, everything was alright.

    What I am realizing is that some websites will log me out of PayPal after I pay for a purchase while other websites do not. Also, I realized that when I close my online banking window, my bank automatically logs me out of online banking. However, if I am in PayPal and close my PayPal window, I am not automatically logged out of PayPal. I can open a new window, go into PayPal, and I am still logged in.

    What I am doing nowadays is *always* checking that I am logged out of PayPal.

    Theoretically it is supposed to be much safer to pay with a credit card through PayPal, as PayPal adds an extra layer of protection. I don't think there's much protection, though, if you stay logged into your PayPal account long past when you think you left it.
