ID theft is a growing problem. Your personal information is being compromised every day by companies who aren't careful enough to protect it. In this day and age you really need to subscribe in a good ID theft protection product. The best one I have found is the ID Theft Shield.
Thank you ever so much for posting this. On your advice, I signed up for the ID Theft Shield http://209.123.207.112/idt and the ID Theft Shield has saved me twice now. Both times, I would not have even known until the damage was done.

<Mike>,
report it to visa's fraud unit and see if they can't do something. and paypal is subject to the laws of where ever they do business, just as every other business. in my state is paypal freezes your account, since it wants to act as a credit agency it has to actually send you a letter of termination stating why if i want to push it. they are subject to more laws then they care to admit.

<Anyone>,
ebay's own Q reports speak of possible internal problems of
this nature and MORE by PP employees as part of thier risk factor.

Read closer the banks' online users had keystroke loggers installed, ebay paypal and most likely no banks were not hacked or compromised only a group of accounts (same as answering a spam)

<flelm>,


The banks would not normally have ebay and PayPal logins and other account information. So hacks at the bank would not reveal this information. Thus, for PayPal and Ebay account information to have been compromised as alleged in the article, that means either PayPal and/or eBay were affected by this, or there is someone doing something outside of normal business practices with regard to holding information about it's customers. I believe the article is accurate. But it's going to be difficult to gain any more insight due to the sensitive nature of the problem.

I fail to see how this is PayPal's fault. This is due to the shoddy security at the banks that were hit, not due to PayPal. Read better.

guardianitt,This is for real! I have had money stolen for my Visa account from pay pal in the past! I don't even have a Pay Pal account and never did! I now learned to clean out my Cookies after every time I do online banking! This happened 2 years ago and when we contacted pay pal we were told that they are protected by the U.S Government and not Canada.. If we want we can file a law suite in the U.S. I live in Canada Damn them ****s! Someone should hack eBay & Pay pal and screw them right up as they steal and screw people that don't even use their service!!!!
