And this just makes me glad I got the free (at least for business members aka eBay sellers) Paypal debit card. Looks like I'll be using it for anything TF related for the future.

Just cancelled my credit card. There was a suspicious charge on my account but it didn't seem to match the same MO as the problems others were having; it was a single $20 charge that I didn't remember making, and when I googled the name of the company the money was sent to, it was connected to stolen credit card numbers. I bought my Overrun after the meltdown - but I did start my membership in December so the number could have been comprimised then.

And don't feel too safe with Paypal - Just yesterday someone somehow got into my account and kept sending himself $20 payments until Paypal's automated security stopped him. Bastard got $180, but fortunately the Paypal rep said the funds are held and will not be deposited to his account. When I talked to my bank representative, she said that a lot of Paypal accounts have been hit recently.

Yeah, I'm having NO luck at all with finances the last few days.

The paypal debit card can be hit just like a regular bank card. The only way to feel safer with it is to keep the account empty until you need to purchase something.

So glad I didn't renew and buy the '12 exclusives last month. Spent the money elsewhere with no regrets.

Indeed people who claim Paypal is safer are just ignorant of the fact it isn't.

This is also a good idea...

A virtual credit card would work perfectly.
Not to be confused with the FAKE Goldbugs here!
