Paypal Safe To Use?

Recommended Posts

Will appreciate anyone's time...

Here and there I have heard of security problems with paypal

but don't know if it really affected customers.

Can anyone tell me if Paypal is safe to use now?

I guess it is still used on ebay, but I don't know

anything about ebay other than what it is.

I would like to use Paypal to donate to

programs that I have used and just wanted to

make sure it is still safe.

Thanks very much! nancy

It's certainly safer than snail mail.

I used it a dozen times or so on Ebay. Never had any problems. You get immiate email notices of payment made.

I like paypal been using it for a few years now. Much safer then using credit cards everywhere. And pretty much a must have for ebay.

I agree with all of the above.... Just don't respond to e-mails from "phishers" wanting info to "UPDATE" your account.. I get a few of those a month...Heh heh also note the spelling and grammar errors in said mails. Very funny at least.

And a third vote for what Bozodog and Naming said because it can't be said often enough--

PayPal will NEVER ask you to submit account information through an email--I've gotten PayPal emails concerning "trouble with your account" or "suspended account" and they look mighty authentic--I KNEW it was a scam because I don't have a PayPal account :thumbsup:

Thanks so very much to all of you!

Appreciate the security reminders about emails too.

I now have an account and have used it to donate to

Stickies...a little program I have used for years after

learning about it on Call for Help!

I have used Paypal over 60 times. Never a problem.
