"Paypal's been linked to my main account for...13-14 years, maybe. Since I started buying and selling on ebay. Never had a problem. In fact, when I completely bungled two transactions of a few hundred dollars each (I was having a REALLY bad day) I filed two disputes with paypal and both cases got resolved in a couple of days, no problem. I had really good sellers, but paypal was super-quick at handling their part of the process."

But how secure is my information on their servers? More and more recently, there have been stories of large scale identity thefts from databases by hackers, or an employee having a laptop stolen with a gazillion names on it etc. That's my concern.
