Protect Your eBay and Paypal Account From Hackers, Phisers, & More!


With so many criminals, trying to break into your ebay or paypal account, I decided to use an extra layer of security that has paid off for over a year.

You see, Last May 2007, as I do almost on  a daily basis I logged into my ebay account and noticed something different from before. I had over 1200 listing in my ebay account ranging from expensive farming equipment to free trips to las vegas. I immediately called ebay and explained to them what was happening!

eBay explained to me that someone had hacked into my account and got my password. They informed me that I would be safe but to recheck in  a few hours. I thanked them for doing their part and waited. An hour went by and I rechecked my account, I could not believe that someone did it again…1200 auctions listing selling farm equipment and airline deals. eBay said that they would have to monitor my account for a few days and see what is going on.

In the end, eBay was able to fix the problem but I knew that I had to start looking for a way to secure my eBay and paypal account. I did not want to take the chance of losing all my money and ebay account.

That is when paypal came out with the Paypal Security Key!

What is a Paypal Security Key?

Well, first off its a account protector! when you log-in into your paypal or ebay account, it will ask you to put the six digit read out from your paypal security key. Basically, you just push the button on your key, and it will generate a random six digit number every-time. This way even if phisers get ahold of your password, they will not be able to access your account as easy.

How much does it cost?

The price is $5.00 for a little peace of safety. Really, its crazy not to have one of these for your account! if it gets lost or is broken, it is the same price as a new key.

I have had my Paypal Security Key for over a year. I have never had any major problems with it. I have used it every-time on my ebay and paypal account. This has been one of the best investments I have made since starting my eBay business. I highly recommend you get one for your protection!
