RE: I paid for Insider but I cannot sign in
About 18 months ago I helped someone with an existing PayPal account pay with a credit card, where PayPal was providing the seller's "merchant account". We finally figured out that if you have ebay and/or PayPal cookies on your machine, PayPal does anything and everything possible to prevent the transaction to be protected by the consumer protection laws covering credit card transactions. It will try to take money out of your PayPal account. It will try to take money out of your checking account. My friend tells me PayPal kept Bee_ess_ing her to get "verified" by adding another account number. She already had a savings account listed with them. They wanted her
C H E C K I N G account number. Then its PARTY TIME for PayPal. Banks don't look at echecks anymore. It is up the customer to catch fraud, then file the report with the police, the affadavit to the bank, etc.
