Any buyer on eBay has a Paypal account. They are automatically directed to their Paypal account at the conclusion of the auction. They have to log in to their account to make payment. Your ID, your private information is NEVER seen by the buyer, who simply authorizes the transfer of funds from his account to yours thru Paypal and eBay. If you get asked for personal info to complete a sale, RUN to eBay and report it. They know who your buyer is, let them take care of it. Do not ship ANYTHING until accounts are settled. Go to MyeBay/summary, the tab at the top of the page, and access your accounts there, the only secure way to be sure that you are logging in to the REAL site and not some Paypal look-alike. Do not respond outright to emails sent to you from ‘heavens knows where’, go right to your own login from the eBay tab. Protect yourself, good luck. I get this stuff a lot, like an official-looking email saying my account security was compromised, or my account was suspended, etc, etc, it’s always BOGUS. Delete, do not Ever click on the internal links in these bogus emails either.
