I set up a separate bank account to link with my paypal account just for the purpose of taking that money out without exposing our main accounts to that kind of vulnerability. The rep at our credit union said many people are doing that. No fees and only a $5 balance required by our Credit Union.
I am going through the steps now to get my money back from PayPal. Never had a PayPal account prior to being required to have one for attendance at the rally.
Now since I linked my account they have to send two small deposits, then pull them back out to confirm my correct account. After that I can transfer the money. As soon as all that happens I will be closing my PayPal account.
That is a good idea on setting up a different account for less exposure. But the last thing I need being full time and paperless is another bank account, let alone a PayPal account I never use just to pay for a rally once per year. We will have to reevaluate for next year.
