    I think it is much easier to have everything go through PayPal. You can link your checking account to PayPal.

    I personally would never use anything but PayPal when purchasing or securing funds on the internet. They have the most intense security measures. The reason your friend got hacked was that they perhaps replied to a "dummy" email "supposedly sent out by PayPal." These happen all the time with banks, Paypal and credit cards.Use the rule, never respond to an email requesting personal information - it is a scam. Report the scam email to PayPal... It truly is very safe

    Never EVER click on a link in an email from Paypal. EVER.

    Always go to your own bookmarked link and log in. If it was a real email, more than likely you will see it when you log in.

    Just one more time. NEVER click on any links in an email from Paypal. It's too dangerous if you don't know what to look for. If you know how to look at the headers of an email to see where it is truly from, then do it!

    Paypal is awesome.  Dont give out your information and dont click on random emails from paypal and you will be fine.  They wont randomly email you.  Paypal is my preferred method for any online transaction.  Their fraud support and customer service exceed all others i have used in the past.
