Paypal asks us to link our credit card to its online account. Is this really secure? This question goes to people who have been using a Paypal account for some time and ppl who know abt it...

PayPal logo - Just for looks
I have used PayPal for years, and have never had a problem. I do get in email from time to time, messeges about updating my information. Those are well crafted fraud letters, and I immediately sent them to PayPal Abuse. There seem to be a lot of them. Their emails look legit, but they aren't. The one time I sent in a fraud report on an actual PayPal email, they let me know it was legit. So I alsways send emails that SEEM to be from PayPal to their Abuse system. abuse@paypal.com

Yes, for that, paypal is absolutley secure... But for other things, I don't like paypal, because it's not intuitive... I like e-gold most, because there is some security...

Paypal is secured, just make sure your account does not get frozen. Many article I read on the internet says bad thing about paypal. I think you can read about it here : http://www.ygoodman.com/paypal.asp I'm not against paypal it just to share some info so we all can take precautions and help each others.
