    If I add an email address to a PayPal account can someone find out all of the other emails attached and associated to that email address/account?

    I'm thinking specifically ewhoring, some dude wants to send "katie" some money! lol

    As far as I am aware if you put an email address into paypal, then they can only see the email registered that you give them and they can't see the rest, so yes you could have Katieshot@gmail.com and they wouldn't be able to find out about your joebloggs@gmail.com.

    I am 100% certain about this:

    If you add email #2 to your paypal account, you can withdraw the money from email #2, and then delete email #2 from your paypal account.

    If you have several email addresses, sometimes a customer might make a mistake, and send payment to the wrong email address. You just have to prove to Paypal that you can access that particular email address. Paypal will hold funds for that particular email address until someone comes to claim it. The customer will see in his Paypal account - 1) that he sent the money to the email address and 2) whether or not the money was claimed.

    The above is only guaranteed if the customer sends the money first, and THEN you add the email to your Paypal account.

    If there are 5 emails associated with your paypal, if you use any one and if its not the primary email they will be able to see your primary email.

    there is a conflict in answers, some saying no, you can't see the primary email, some saying you can.

    You can always see the primary email if you go back and view the transaction history. Even if you're just looking at the general view of your transactions, you will see either the NAME on the account, whether it be business or premier, or you will see the main email address.

    I suggest that if you want them to send some chick a few bucks, then you make whichever email they will be using the primary email to prevent them from knowing about others. You also don't want to do this from a Premier or Business account because they will get your name, your CS email (business account), and possibly your phone number.

    Use a personal account, and you should be good to go!

    ah, okay, so I need a separate "personal account", and make sure that the personal account is the primary one - and then it's rock and roll! ;)

    Haha my girlfriend's into ewhoring too. She's pretty good with making these pervs send her some $$$. But I so much hate it she always has to use my Premier Account since her personal account got locked. She always tell them it's her boss' account lol and her boss' (me) gets 10% of whatever amount is sent to her lol.
    Recently someone sent her £150 and I was scared as shit this guy would issue a refund within 60days darn. I hope the 60days period ends soon or else I'm fucked. :smashfrea

    Don't shit where you eat.

    No one, not even you, should get money under false pretenses in THEIR OWN ACCOUNT. :eek: That's just a Cops video segment waiting to be filmed.

    At best, someone will issue a refund/complaint. At worst (try pissing off a horny attorney sometime!!) they'll go after you all jacked up with rage.

    It's amazing how fast online companies cave in and start handing over your data. :listen: It usually doesn't take much more than a fax from a lawyer to get them singing (remember the horny lawyer above?).

    Yeah I know man and it always piss me off when we always get into situations like that. Plus she's using my IP lol and don't care about traces of shit. She tells me I'm too paranoid and everything. In the end, I just tell her she has to pay it back just in case these dudes issue a refund. :confused:
