    Hey Guys,
    I accidentally sent two of my transaction IDs to a member of BHW. Will they be able to do anything with them?
    I'm just a big blunder.

    Make sure to contact the person that you are paying and let them know what happened. Give them additional information to show that it's you who paid, such as your paypal email address. It should be fine.

    They can't gain access to your account with just a transaction ID, if that's what you mean.

    Thanks for the help mate :)
    The transaction IDs I sent over accidentally are for payments that I received.

    If it is only a transaction ID, I feel it is safe but contact the recipient to clarify the point...

    You sent the password too? Then you might have some problems :D

    Of course nothing can happen if you just send a transaction ID...

    Nothing to worry about. The transaction ID can best be used to extract the details of the transaction. Even if someone were going to do that, they would have to be one of the transacting parties to get that information from Paypal.

    No worries, the only thing they can do is maybe fake your purchase on a BST :p
