I never used Paypal for online shopping, instead I use my credit or debit card for making payments. I wonder if it is safe to give our card details to a third party like PayPal. Are there any security issues present? I know PayPal is one of the oldest players in online money transactions, but still I feel quite skeptical about this. Once I read about the experience of a person wherein his whole bank account was drained off by a scammer through his PayPal account. I don’t know how the scammer could intrude into his PayPal account! It happened at night while he was sleeping and his mobile phone was in silent mode. In the morning he was startled to saw a series of SMS in his mobile showing various online shopping transactions which had been carried out through his PayPal account. The scammer used his PayPal account for online shopping which was linked to his bank account.
