To PayPal,

There's no chance that I'm going to give you our bank account number to get "verified," and have the "privilege" of using your payment service. We simply won't buy anything that requires PayPal.

Ironically, this shows that their "verification" system works. People who don't want to link a valid acct number would simply not sign up for PayPal. Of course, there is no 100% way to prevent fraud, but at least PayPal is trying.

Keep in mind that PayPal is owned by eBay, so it is not some fly by night company. I wouldn't let this verification system prevent me from signing up to PayPal. However, eBay's excessive fees may. ;)
