Don't even bother getting a PayPal account. They are total morons incapable of understanding the simplest facts. Don't waste your time.

If you think you are protected by PayPal think again.

To all my hardworking fellow amateurs:I highly encourage you, indeed I implore you to NOT use PayPal for your transactions.

Use a USPS money order to ensure a legitimate transaction.

PayScam protects the buyer, not the seller. Part swappers love PayScam.

Here is something else to think about. Why in the world would PayPal need your social security number? Are they going to contribute to your retirement fund?!
