HI All:
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 now.
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?
Thank you,
