I use PayPal a fair amount for online transactions due to its convenience, but never keep a balance there to be safe. PayPal is a now little less of a bully now that some legal action won against them (some kind of class action suit that I read about). I did hesistate confirming my bank accounts, because of the bad press, so I only use my credit card through them at the moment.
Mostly, I use PayPal for small transactions ($XX and $1XX type transactions) outgoing from me to others.
Yes, my paypal account was randomly locked, for no reason whatsoever (that they would disclose to me anyways) with about $1632 USD in the account.
I had to get people to do chargebacks for me and managed to get $1590 out of there.
This was about 6 months ago, and last week they emailed me saying that I can withdraw the $42 usd in my accounts. Bastards. :roll:
