I have an international friend who wants to reimburse me via
paypal. (Yes, I totally trust this person) (and not $3M from a
dodgy bank ;)
In the past, when Paypal started up, they wanted more access to
my checking account than I was comfortable with (creepy,
really). They wanted all sorts of info about that bank account
and it discouraged me from using their service. I wondered if
anyone had good things to say about the way they do business
I use Paypal to pay to exhibitons, etc. I also get client money
deposited into my checking account, but not sure why Paypal
wanted access to money in and out of my account.
Any thoughts? Do you find them reliable and safe?
