I don't buy much on Ebay, but DH does. I did buy something last month and noticed that it went directly to our PayPal account without a login step. I told DH about MissMolly's incident and he said he'd like to unlink our PayPal from our Ebay account. He couldn't find where to do that but I did.

Go to your Ebay account and click the ACCOUNT tab. Under Account Information scroll down to PayPal Account Information and on the right there is a place to "Unlink PayPal account". When I unlinked it there was a message that unlinking will require extra steps when making a purchase.

I'm ok with that. We have our PayPal set to withdraw from our checking account. Fraud activity like MissMolly's would cause a lot of havoc!

Married, both 61. DH retired June, 2010. I have a pleasant little part time job.

The husband of my daughter's first nanny was a PayPal programmer assigned to their international operations. They were from Romania. He shared with me Romania was their largest source of fraud and brute force attacks. He smiled and said, "They are skilled but not as skilled as I am!"
