It is now a common method of fraud to empty the bank account the moment the money arrives. Then when the buyer learns he has been defrauded, PayPal makes the lame excuse that they cannot recover the money because it is no longer there. With so muvh Identity theft now, opening a bank account wth a fraudlent Social Security number is as easy as breathing.....

In the last couple of days I was going to bid (and surely win) some items on *Bay. However the sellers flatly refused to accept a method of payment other than Paypal. My feedback is perfect. Why would anyone actually tie their hand with Paypal (who do not have the greatest of reputation businesswise) and lose money? Did this happen to anyone on this list?
