In other words I now have to link bank information, routing number, account number. Maybe its just me but I contacted PayPal and asked them to explain the logic behind this (other than making more money) and since I have a spotless payment record why am I being blocked. They yet to reply.
That's exactly what happened to me during my first round with paypal. I had given them my band account number, but they said I can't use that number because it's already in use. DUH ya, I'm the one using it and had already given it to paypal. I went round and round and finally gave up on paypal for 2 years. I then signed up again and all is well this time.

This thread is about something new to me however, and it's called PROPAY and they want me to fill in my credit card information.

Hi Folks. First off, there are some seriously cool cars here. I'm very much in awe at some the cars in your profile pics. Secondly, I'm the customer service manager for ProPay.I'm not looking to advertise here, just want you to make sure you're able to get the parts and accessories you need for your cars and would hate for you not to because you were not confident in using ProPay. Personally, I think what you do to preserve these vehicles is way cool. I just wanted to clarify some things on here. ProPay has been in business since 1997. We are based out of Lehi, Utah. We are PCI compliant, which means that we adhere to the highest security standards set forth by the credit card industry. When eBay decided to eliminate the cash and check option, they needed to provide other options besides PayPal. ProPay was the first company to integrate with eBay. We are an approved eBay payment option. We'd be happy to answer any questions you might have about ProPay. I'm not looking to advertise here, just want you to make sure you're able to get the parts and accessories you need for your cars and would hate for you not to because you were not confident in using ProPay. You can check us out at www.propay.com and www.propay.com/ebay. eBay is also full of information about us as well.

That is exactly what I do too.

Ran into something similar about six (6) months ago -- received an email from some company saying they were Paypal & wanted lots of my banking information.

Their English grammar was terrible.

Contacted Paypal who reported this was a known foreign, fake Paypal organization illegally trying to acquire banking information -- they suggested ignoring them.

Used to also receive faxes from foreign jerks wanting to deposit large sums of money in my banking account -- reported each fax to FBI -- FBI said to ignore same -- thousands of these faxes were circulating at that time.

All of this goes on only because we have so many uninformed Americans who are not aware of these scams & trust everybody.

Wonderful that these disaster scams are reported on this Forum to make others aware of such.

I have paid for hundreds of items on EBay with PayPal charging my credit card.
