Wouldn't go as far to say paypal is safe...

I have been using Paypal for about 6 years and I am on my second account because my first account had been accessed by an unauthorized source which tried to sting me for $700!! Funny because I live in the UK and barely ever buy things from the USA! The transaction was always stated as "pending" and they did notify me straight away about my account being accessed yet it could not be resolved as the case number did not exist?

Recently I noticed that my account had reached the sending limit in which I had to verify my account to continue to send and receive money but I couldn't register my bank account because the details were in use by my old account that I deleted almost 2 years ago! I phoned Paypal CS about the issue and the only way i can resolve this is to send them a statement from my bank as proof I own the account. I fully understand why have to do this but I don't get why my bank details have been stored but my account has been closed.

On the other hand the CS call centre employees (I called them on 2 occasions) were very helpful at helping me resolve the issue.

I would recommend anyone who would like to use the service to create a secure e-mail account just for use with Paypal to avoid scammers/hackers from trying to access your account.
