    I need all the info on keeping my Paypal safe at all costs.

    I know, i know, Paypal sucks and I shouldn't use it in the first place, but if other people use it, I use it. I never keep large sums of money in my Paypal account.

    Anyways, I heard that if you receive large payments, or if you receive a payment from an adult-related website, your account can get limited.

    Is that true?

    If so, any other tips on staying "under the radar?"

    Yes it is true. Upgrade your account to Premier Account, thats the only solution for it. (if you dont wantt to verify it..:willy:)

    I personally have never had any problems with Paypal. It's the most popular processor on the net by my understanding which is good when you're selling products.

    I'd probably have to say that you should make sure it's verified and upgraded to a business account. I personally called Paypal earlier this week and they said they have no problems with business accounts that do a high volume.

    I also took down the person's name. Just in case...:)

    My account is premier so I guess I am good to go ;).

    Plus I stay safe... however, I hear horror stories of Paypal limiting accounts and what not.

    Oh well BHW just make me feel safe, turn my cheek the other way, and make everything look like a fucken illusion. optical illusion would be nice..

    I'm excited.
