Having worked on some credit-card and ACH systems...
The only thing a company needs to reach into your account is a check. A check contains the bank routing number and account number.
So the poster who said all the necessary information is available to any one to whom you've sent a check was correct. I wouldn't worry about PayPal anything they do is traceable.
It's the pro's who steal your outbound checks from the mailbox and then wash or duplicate them are the ones I worry about. We don't send out any mail from our street mailbox. All goes to a street drop box or from work.
So, how do other Fool's deal with today's paranoia?
